“I have a plan of action, but the game is a game of adjustments.” ~ Mike Krzyzewski
NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It’s my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian ‘Quote Cup’ passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, along with an update and photos of what has been going on in our lives. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!
Our grandson plays in a traveling basketball league and their team won the championship last weekend… congratulations, Khalen! I love this week’s quote because I think it speaks to all of life. I have always explained my approach to life as I have a plan, but I don’t expect to follow it exactly because I am constantly adjusting to new things. I am actually disappointed when I follow a plan exactly because it means I haven’t learned something new!
RECIPE OF THE WEEK
There is nothing like a warm slice of freshly baked sweet bread to warm up a cold morning or afternoon. This bread actually seemed to get even better and more moist as I savored it over the course of a few days. It is joining my list of favorites. The post where I found it online called it The Best Cranberry Bread… Ever.
CRANBERRY RAISIN BREAD
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1 1/2 cups golden raisins
- 1 1/2 cups fresh chopped cranberries
Combine all dry ingredients and cut butter into it so mixture is crumbly. Add egg, juice and zest and give it a quick stir, not over mixing. Then add the raisins and cranberries and fold together.
Bake in greased loaf pan at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 10 minutes, until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
