November has arrived, windy, cold and rainy! Brown is an appropriate color for November, me thinks! Clocks go back, and darkness comes so early. I do not like it!
If you think Irish Soda Bread is just for St. Patrick’s Day, surprise! We have it all year round. Of course, if it tasted like my Mom’s, one day a year was enough! It took me many tries to get it the way we like it…moist! I have had some that made you want to call 911, even an inordinate amount of butter didn’t help! ;>
I like to keep some in the freezer in case someone drops in for tea.
Yesterday was All Saints’ Day, and the first graders had the annual parade.
Each child picks a saint, and recites a short speech about the saint they are dressed as.
Declan chose his namesake, St. Declan, a Bishop of Ireland.
It’s a nice change from Halloween!
Don’t forget Nov. 12th is the Bundt Cake challenge. National Bundt Cake day is the 15th, so dig out your pans, show them to us, and do a dessert table setting. You can freeze the cake for Tgiving, or just go ahead and eat it!
Thanks for stopping by!
