I trust this finds you doing well.
Once again I became bored with my blog background and changed it.
Today, I enjoyed a Christmas concert by the Paris School Bands. I tried to get pictures, but the lighting wasn't good and my camera just isn't up to snuff. Here is one picture I got of the high school band as they were setting up.
I am so proud of both of my children. My son, who is now 21 is a good musician and my daughter amazes me each time she plays the drums. Today, I enjoyed hearing her play the drums, sleigh bells and sand blocks. She is truly blessed with rhythm.
I know it is the Christmas season, but it sure doesn't feel like it outside. Today we were in the upper 50s to low 60s. Go figure. Grant it, I was chilled most of the day. I got cold this morning and just never truly warmed back up.
Yesterday morning, I made a sweet bread from scratch. I had a recipe, but didn't have all the ingredients, so I tweaked it to meet my needs and renamed it. :)
Here's the recipe.
Sweet Wheat Bread
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2/3 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
Mix the first 6 ingredients together, set aside. Add egg to milk and whisk together. Pour and mix the milk mixture with the dry ingredients. Mix well. Put in a greased or non-stick sprayed pan. Let stand for 20 minutes and heat oven to 350°F. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until it tests done with a toothpick.
This bread is good served with coffee of your choice. It is also good spread with butter or topped with fresh whipped cream.
Here's wishing you a Marvelous Monday!
God bless and keep you,
