I wanted to send a HUGE thank you to Krista for one of the best BAoK ever! She saw my post noting that I couldn't find canned pumpkin in my area and she sent me TWO cans, an adorable card, and a bundle of fun teas:
Thank you so much Krista! After work today, I headed to the Daniel Island farmers market with Lindsay. We got some coffee and then hit up all the local food stands:
We also got a sample of homemade pickles with salsa on top:
I wanted one of everything! But I came home with purple potatoes, amazing carrots, blackberries, Brussels sprouts and grass fed beef (for the man):
It was also just a lot of fun to walk around in the heat and chat with Lindsay.
I ran home to take care of Frank and then headed out to teach class. After cleaning myself up and making dinner, I got started on a bread creation that I thought up while at work today ;)
Multi Grain Bread (Vegan or Not)
- ¾ cup flax seed meal
- ¾ cup whole wheat flour
- ½ cup unbleached AP flour
- 1 cup oats
- ½ cup cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 2/3 cups milk (regular, soy, almond, whatever you’ve got)
- ½ cup molasses or honey
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Mix dry and wet ingredients separately, then combine.
- Spray a loaf pan and pour in batter.
- Bake for 45 minutes- 1 hour.
- Let loaf cool completely before slicing.
The bread turned out pretty nice! Its (obviously) a dark bread with an interesting combination of textures and flavors and is just slightly sweet.
