|Cheddar Onion Scones, Chocolate Chip Biscuits|
Oatmeal Bread, GF Banana Bread
We had also polished off our last loaf of oatmeal bread and I had a few overripe bananas. Altogether, that spells Baking Frenzy!
I baked some old favorites for the Tea: cheddar onion scones and chocolate chip biscuits. I also made some gluten/dairy free banana bread (since the scones and biscuits had loads of both). The GF banana bread came out great. I liked it better than the GF date bread I made earlier in the year. This had good texture and everyone agreed it was delicious. Alas, one of the mini loaves fell into a spot of flour on the counter when I removed it from the pan. Oops. I had to keep that one all to myself (you can see my big fat taste-test in the photo).
Sunday was a perfect afternoon to eat and chat on the tree-shaded patio. There was so much food to choose from: pasta and green salads, curried rice and veggies, ratatouille, tomatoes with mozzarella, fresh fruit (including chocolate dipped strawberries) and cherry-filled cookies. Oh, and of course Waldorf salad.
Once again, we were treated to a show-and-tell of handmade crafts. My friend has finished the quilt top she's been working on all year. Isn't it beautiful? Now comes the difficult decision on how to quilt it. I can't wait to see it complete and bound.
