Here is a sample with changes of course!
Honey Nut Bread
Combine - 1 cup honey, 1 cup milk and 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan to dissolve sugar and butter.
Cool and pour into a large bowl.
Sift together 2 1/2 cups flour, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add wet to dry and fold in 3/4 cup chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup currants* (or another dried fruit or different nut). Let stand for 20 minutes and then bake in 2 small loaf pans for 40-50 mins.
*I really like currants better than raisins as they don't drag the mix down and end on the bottom. Plump them in a jar with sherry.
A new restaurant and other things 12 Mar 2011, 4:39 amWith my ear to the ground I hear that the Dining Room of old is re-opening - will it be Moroccan food? No word on that yet. Such a nice space, I look forward to its return.
Woodrow Wilson is offering their Flapper evening on March 25th and it looks to be a fun evening. Wear feathers. Call (540) 885-0897 ext. 106 to make reservations for this event. $85 includes heavy hors d's and open bar.
St. Patrick's day will come and go this coming week, not marked especially despite the Scots-Irish hangover from the past. The Irish Alley is so named for its location, not for being Irish.
Last but not least, the tulips are up!
