No Cooking

For the most part, I make our menu and do much of the cooking for the entire week on Sunday or Monday.  I don’t know what happened this week but I never cooked a single meal.  From the weekend, we had leftover ham, gumbo, soup, and pork.  Between being out of town and the leftovers, there was no major cooking going on.  That rarely happens around here.

But, I did need to make bread and I had a sourdough starter to use so I mixed up a 2 loaf batch of dough and then decided to make 1 loaf of bread and was thinking about making cinnamon rolls when I remembered seeing an apple braid on Suzanne McMinn’s blog.   Vince must’ve gotten a deal on apples because there were quite a few of them downstairs so in order to use a few of the apples and the extra bread dough, I made this recipe.

Added a little vanilla ice cream  .. yummy!

And, it was even better today.  The appley, gooey, syrup has infused the bread and . . I’m glad Vince and Chad are fishing this morning because I may just eat the rest of it all by myself.

    Did you know that you can also make a reuben loaf the same way?

    prepare the dough in the same manner. you can put it in a greased dish or on a baking sheet.

    layer the center strip with: sliced swiss cheese, corned beef, thousand island dressing, drained sauerkraut.

    alternately fold over the strips of dough in a braid fashion, seal the ends of the loaf, and brush with beaten egg.

    bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 min, or until a shiney golden crust develops.
    slice warm from the oven for a great luncheon meal.

    I love hearing that Vince and Chad are out fishing while you are home eating the yummies! Sounds like you sent them out there on purpose, LOL!
