Day 35 – #100HappyDays Challenge
Mr. Abraham was thrilled when Beau came home from work. He’s such a happy little dog. Especially with all the belly rubs and head scratches.
Today was Gregg’s day off which he graciously shared with me. We headed out this morning to pick up all the things I forgot yesterday. Then we went to HomeGoods. Cue the music and the lights, clouds part, and doors open. I just love the HomeGoods here.
The store is neat. There isn’t combat shopping carts careening down aisles littered with broken product. Every time I turned a corner there was more items to admire. More to add to my cart while Gregg patiently put up with my wandering.
I did take some time to admire a stunning cake platter, pondering on how I could get it on the airplane in one piece. Not that I need another cake platter but I did think about it for quite a bit, before deciding against it. Instead I picked up a rolling pin that will come in handy for the apple tart in our near future.
We made it home just in time for me to gently push down the bread I had put on to rise before we headed out in the morning. It’s always a new adventure when baking in an unknown oven. But over all, even though I think the bake could have used a few more minutes in the oven it turned out pretty good.
I love using a mix of fresh and dried cranberries in this hearty cranberry walnut bread. The tartness of the fresh cranberries lend a brightness to the hearty loaf. I really enjoy it toasted, slathered with butter and honey in the morning with coffee. Try it. You’ll love it!
