The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.
Had a quiet week. Only had school on Monday because of the Jewish holidays. Next week it starts in earnest. Today I have Tai Chi in the morning and then heading back home and taking tomorrow as a day of rest because once Sunday rolls around I won't have a day of rest for two weeks. Not complaining, though. I love being busy, and I enjoy learning new things. I told Ralph the other day that if I had it to do over again, I'd be a nutritionist and not a substance abuse counselor. I'd still be in a helping profession, but one with a lot less stress.
I had a quiet celebration on Mabon. Made chicken breasts marinated in rosemary, garlic powder, black pepper, melted butter and lemon juice. Baked in oven. Served with salad, brocolli,
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 snack size cups of applesauce
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup fat free milk
2 tablespoons oil
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in large bowl and set aside.
Beat egg in medium bowl. Stir in applesauce, brown sugar, milk and oil. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened. (Batter will be lumpy.) Pour 1/2 of the batter into a loaf pan sprayed with Pam or your choice of non-cooking spray. Sprinkle 1/2 of cinnamon topping and spread evenly.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup salt free butter (melted)
2 tsp. cinnamon
Combine ingredients and blend with a fork until crumbly.
Pour the rest of batter into pan and sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon topping evenly to cover.
Bake for about 40-45 minutes.
Have a wonderful weekend.
