Boxes and Bread !

Boxes and Bread !

I'm standing knee deep in boxes.  

The removalists have gone.  The renovations are complete.  Sleep is slowly returning.

Ahhh....the pure joy of unpacking your personal possessions after they have spent time in storage.

Just as joyful as slicing into this lovely gluten-free bread.  It slices like a dream.....

These lovely biscuits are dedicated to my sweet tooth.

It's not often I get a visit from her these days, but when she does pop by for a visit.....holy smoke!

Not one to enter a door elegantly, she will stumble her way through, tripping over anything and everything that is in her way, and when the door closes behind her, I exhale.

On her latest visit, I found this recipe......

Spinach Bread !

Spinach Bread !

Did you know you can buy bread mixes in a box at the supermarket?  Apparently, they're made for our convenience.  

Seriously?!  

A box filed with fake ingredients and loads of sugar, designed to make us feel like we're bakers.  That we're filling our bodies with goodness just because we've switched the oven on.  I like to think we're a little smarter than they give us credit for.  I like to think I am.....well, at least occasionally.

Okey dokey, I've had my rant, so now to a quick bread recipe THAT IS packed full of nutrition and nothing fake in sight.

I read this line somewhere recently..."For children, Christmas means days of anticipation and then delight."  Cross out the first two words and this line could be about me.

I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!  SERIOUSLY!

Apart from decorating the tree, creating gifts by hand is one of my all time favourite things which is why I jumped at the chance to be apart of Claire K Creation's Foodie Secret Santa! 

The assignment - Be given three fellow bloggers from somewhere in Australia.  Create edible Christmas gifts.  Package them up and send them on their merry way.

Here's my gift.....
