Very ordinary day. It was slightly warmer than the day before. I think the high was around freezing.
I had some leftover cooked sweet potatoes in the fridge. They were just steamed with no added anything. I decided to make my recipe for Pumpkin Bread but substitute pureed sweet potatoes. (Remember I raised quite a lot in the garden this year and they are stored under the bed in the spare bedroom). I had to microwave one more to get the 2 cups called for. I also got very daring and added l cup of my mincemeat, a cup of coconut and a cup of chopped pecans. You can't really go wrong with any of these bread recipes. It turned out great. I made two regular sized loafs and two mini loafs. One of the minis will be for my elderly neighbor and, naturally we had to sample the other one.
I splurged the other day at King Arthur's website. They were offering free shipping, so I ordered several bags of different flours. There is only one store nearby (35 minutes) that carries them and the one time I bought whole wheat, it was very old!. I put the bag of white whole wheat in the back porch freezer but will leave the bread and AP in the pantry. I also ordered my favorite SAF yeast that will keep a year once opened in the freezer. I just transfer it to a wide mouth canning jar and label it with the date. It won't last me a year. I also got us a milk jug. I have been putting the milk into 1 /2 gallon canning jars. Try pouring out of one of those! I had milk drips everywhere from DH's pouring (one of is jobs is to set the table and pour the milk). He likes it but I think the handle is too close to the jar. It is Italian and all the label is in Italian. That's a first, usually English is listed also, and sometimes Spanish and French.
It holds a half gallon. I will still store the milk in the parlor fridge in the canning jars and just transfer it when I bring it down to the house.
I cooked the 'Easter' eggs this morning. The huge one was a double yolk. Here is what they looked like out of shell. I can report they were quite tasty.
DH likes his toast fried so that is what he got.
I know I said I didn't trust KA's recipes..............well they enclosed a recipe card for orange-cranberry nut fruit cake that is calling to me...........need to shop for a couple of items first.
