Rocks and Loaves

On the weekend our curling club held it's annual
Valentine Bonspiel.
The roads were horrid but that didn't stop us ...

It was a fun day and the food, as always, was delicious and
beautifully presented by some of the club member's spouses and families.

This is a day we all look forward to each winter.

Today the weather has turned to icy rain - ugh!

So what's a gal to do on a rainy, icy February day?
Perfect timing to bake some bread ... right!?

Two loaves of our forever favourite "Miriam Bread"
(I looked back in my blog recipes and couldn't believe
that I had never posted this delicious bread)

My cousin Miriam makes this bread recipe all the time
and generously shares it with our church family and friends
at potlucks, family reunions, and such.
She even bakes many, many loaves to distribute to her neighbours
and friends on Hallowe'en along with the children's treats!
Can I say, she is almost famous for this yummy bread.

And why not make a savoury kringle bread as well!
You will see a past post on this bread if you click the above link.

This time I changed up the filling a tad (since I didn't have any fresh herbs on hand to use this time).

2 Tbsp. Ground Flax Seed
1 Tbsp. Poppy Seeds
1 large garlic clove - minced
1 Tbsp. chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 Tbsp. parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. chopped parsley
Before baking I sprinkled the dough with some coarse salt and sesame seeds.

Some baking to warm the hearth and home.

Now I might bake a carrot cake - just because I've been craving it.

Till next time ... stay safe where you are - so many storms passing through these past few days!
