Not Christmas


No snow for Christmas. Just wind and rain.

While it looks pretty to have snow, it’s safer for driving if the precipitation is just water, not ice or snow.

So here we have the view today.

Blustery, gray, wet! When you see whitecaps on the water, you know it’s breezy.

Since it doesn’t look like Christmas, I decided that my baking didn’t have to be Christmassy either. Just plain comfort food is good today.

Apple pies await.


And the staff of life, bread, is almost ready to come out of the oven. Not Christmas bread; just bread.

(The pale part of the bread is from the light in the kitchen.)

  7. It’s great if you don’t have a guilt feeling afterwards that makes you have to go for an unwanted run.


  8. The bread looks GREAT, and itโ€™s a great quote either way you spell it โ€œbread, the staff of life!โ€ No wonder Julia Child held it as a foundation of greatness: โ€œHow can a nation be great if their bread tastes like kleenex?โ€ ๐Ÿ™‚
