Baking Spicy Apple Loaves.







This morning yet again it rained between 7 and 8 am. So everything is wet out side. The hydraladdas to pick Avos have been waiting here 2 days now.Tomorrow maybe.

I spent the morning inside and baked Spicy Apple Loaves. Lovely smell of baking.( nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger cloves ....ahhh! ) The recipe is already here on my blog. ( you will have to look back to July 26 2006 to find it )( the link was too long to copy ).

Then I set about pulling out fabrics that might be good as feature fabrics in my cathedral window quilt. I'm making this for my eldest son and he likes blue ( with some purple and green ).All set to start this on Saturday.

Things have dried out now, I better get outside.

Are you going to do your cathedral windows the old fashioned way, by hand? I love to make those.. Will be looking for pictures of your progress!

No Molly I'm not. ( Although I do have some like that to finish - just enough for a cushion. )The quilt I am making is called MOCK Cathedral Windows and is all done by machine. 7" squares surrounded by a circle with 6" radius.( do you remember a photo I showed of a whole pile of denim circles that looked like a pancake stack? ) that's them.

Does have to be dry to pick the Avocados?

We expect pics of the progress of the cathedral windows.
Your baking looks so good, I can almost smell it!

Yes Gudrun, otherwise the guys in the hydraladdas get soaked tand the ground is slippery and gets cut up badly, but mainly cause the fruit may get rots more readily. This pick is just to get it off the trees and will be sold on the local market. ( probably cost us as much as we make! )
I have written this comment Friday morning and it is fine and they ARE picking!

I have a similar recipe for apple bread. The only difference is that in mine fresh apples are grated (skin,too) rather than cooked. You've whetted my appetite enough for me to go make some.
