Wow, what a day its been. It started off with a couple of cards in the post from friends and family, flowers and bulbs that needed to be taken care of… thankfully it was a glorious morning to deal with all of that.
I’ve been spoilt rotten by the Boys and friends, with lots of lovely wine,home cooked food, handmade candles, flowers plus many smiles and cuddles.. I’ve literally not lifted a finger all day! Bliss.
Although, I did make an Apple Bread recipe which Gaby sent me to try through face book .. so here it is…
“Easy Apple Bread: beat 2 eggs, add a cup of oil and a cup of sugar (or 3/4 if less sweet), mix well. Add 3 peeled and chopped apples. You can add 1 cup nuts if you like. Then separately mix dry ingredients: 2 cups and a bit of whole wheat flour, 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg or allspice. Then mix it all together, transfer to loaf tin, oval Pyrex.. bake for an hour at 175C (350F). then let sit for 15 minutes .. and honestly there’s not much else to say about it other than its as easy as that.. and its scrummy.
I decorated mine with heart-shaped apple slices and some cherries that I had in the fridge, sprinkled with brown sugar before I placed it in the oven.. it’s very filling and I imagine its one of those loaves that improves in flavour the next day.
So, I’m off to bed now with a lovely warm fuzzy feeling inside from reading all your beautiful messages .. thank you.. its been a perfect end to a perfect day.
On Tuesday I’ll be telling you about all the crazy bargain goodies I managed to find at the pound shop to help me complete my “jolly Abigail bunting”
