I've been abroad....

..... ahahha.... oh, yerh...... sure I have.

Just messing with your head. Of course I'm fibbing.  It was just summertime.  All I could manage was one blog and some golf and gardening and playing about.... we don't have long summers up here.... so we make the most of it.

The fall has actally been better than some of the summer months...it is beautiful, warm, dry and we are having lovely blue sky days.  If I hadn't had surgery on my wrist I would have got in a great last month of golf.  The courses are closed now for the winter months... somehow I have to keep in shape to be able to swing a club by spring... but that is easier said than done with a foot that is now bad.... sigh.. it's been a few bad weeks...

This is what happened to my baking prior to the wrist surgery...

Even with greasing and flouring the pans... disaster!












The only good thing was... it tasted very yummy...

Italian Plum Loaf.  You may remember it from last year.  Only enough plums for two loaves and this had to happen.  Darn it.

But... this is already in the stores...














Oh....sorry.....














Here's the English version....

And... here's the perfect bottom of a perfect Eggnog Loaf !!



















Aren't glass loaf pans wonderful?!  I'm saving the others for bread.  They seem to do bread loaves just fine....












Bread doesn't stick... why on earth did the plum loaves do so poorly I wonder...

A shame about the plum loaf breaking apart but at least it doesn't effect the taste. Maybe try lining the loaf tin with paper next time for that particular loaf?

The eggnog loaf looks delicious too!
