This morning I woke up feeling like quite the domestic goddess, and decided to whip up a wholesome loaf of whole-wheat & molasses quick bread. The recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks, How to Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bittman. It was very easy and quick, and I plan on having a warm slice of it, spread thickly with butter, for my mid-morning snack.
If you have buttermilk (or plain yogurt), molasses, whole wheat flour, cornmeal, salt and baking soda tucked away in your kitchen, you already have everything you need to make your own loaf. The recipe for this deliciousness can be found here.
Also, one of Jaime’s co-workers, Alyssa, sent home a bag of freshly picked vegetables from her garden. I am trying to decide what to make with them for tonight’s dinner. Maybe I’ll add some red onions and green peppers to the mix and make fajitas, or perhaps a rustic, free-form vegetable tart with goat cheese and fresh herbs. Fresh vegetables are one of the best things about summer, don’t you think?
Also on the agenda today – a little sleeve knitting! The front of the sweater is finally off of the needles, thank goodness. I am very excited to be winding down to the end of this project; I’m hoping to have photos of the FO for you by the end of next week…
I hope you find a little time to enjoy a bit of domestic happiness today. ~J
