Stir up a deliciously moist and low fat quick bread with Cranberries and Pistachios.
It is baking season! Are you running yourself ragged trying to get Christmas cookies baked, finishing your Christmas shopping, decorating and trying to be merry? It can really weigh you down. Having some easy and quick recipes like Cranberry Pistachio Bread up your sleeve, can make life much easier. The thing I look forward to the least, writing and addressing Christmas cards. I absolutely hate doing it. I don’t know why since I absolutely adore getting them. I love seeing the pictures and reading the letters from friends far away, but just the thought of writing and addressing them sends me into a conniption. I know it sounds stupid but it never goes smoothly.
The addresses never seem to line up correctly with the address labels. I inevitably put in the labels upside down and print the addresses on the wrong side. If I get the labels the correct side up, then they jam in the printer. Ugh! I just can’t take it. I always seem to be a few stamps short too. Then I forget to buy more. Licking the envelopes! Seriously – yuck! I dampen a paper towel and use that to moisten the envelopes. It works great for some and others, those silly envelopes just won’t seal.
I think I will sit with a mug of coffee, a Christmas mug of course, a slice of Cranberry Pistachio Bread, blast Christmas music and sit down and stuff all those envelopes with Christmas cards. Maybe that will make the job go easier. With that monkey off my back, I can merrily go on my way with the rest of my Christmas duties. I still have Christmas shopping to do. Holy cow! How did that happen? I have usually finished months ago. I have been dawdling a little too much. I still have to make Christmas cookies, oh, and wrapping! Time to get to it.
What is your least favorite holiday duties? What do you do to make it more enjoyable?
