RECIPE: Maple-Oatmeal Sandwich Bread

Okay, I know I know I know I know. It seems like I have abandoned this thing. I have been trying to do this post for almost a month now. But I spend my entire day writing about food, and then when I am done .... well, once a week I have to write about food some more.

When I sit down to write on this blog, well, it doesn't feel like fun anymore, it feels like work. And in the past few weeks, I've had a lot of stuff going on ... birthdays galore, and friends in need, and between that and the work I've been exhausted a lot, with not a lot of energy left over.

But I don't want to abandon this blog, so I'm changing the plot a little bit. While I do have to write about food all day, one thing I don't have to do is photograph it. I have been thinking and I think I may take this opportunity to practice my photography skills and try to improve. My pictures are not exactly masterpieces, but maybe with some work, they can get better.

So for a while, I think I am going to not stress out about the writing and instead just relax and take pictures of food and put them up with captions instead. Starting with this bread I made. You can find the recipe here: Maple-Oatmeal Sandwich Bread

The bread when first sliced. It maybe could have been a little fluffier, but it was a good consistency for a sandwich or toast.

I didn't mean to make the big hole in the top, but when I was testing it I accidently stuck the stick into a bubble and the whole thing popped. Whoopsie.

This bread was so good toasted with butter. J. didn't want any at first ... until he saw this.

The more butter the better!

The bread ... close up ... you know you want to eat it.


What do you mean you are writing about food all day? What? What? WHAT!?! What did you do with your clients? Okay, as you can tell I've been away from Foodblogland for a while now so I've got to read and catch up. Congrats anyway! Oh yeah, the bread sounds right up my alley. And, butter does it for me too (darn it!).
