Brown Rice and Prune Bread

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted, and I’m glad to be back. The garden has been keeping us very busy.
Well, I used the brown rice, but substituted raisins for the prunes, and pomegranate juice for the prune juice. So, maybe the title should be Brown Rice, Raisin and Pomegranate Bread?

 Anyway, I thought it was very good. We had it toasted for breakfast. But, now thinking about it, how about with some spicy mustard, smoked turkey, creamy Havarti cheese and fresh tomato slices? Ok, next time that’s on the menu.

Cool thing happened in our community garden; we received a grant from our Councilperson, Tina Ward Pugh, for an all electric zero turn riding lawn mower. It is so nice; it will cut about an acre on a charge. We had a great press conference with the Mayor, Tina, our garden board of directors and gardeners, loads of fun. If you have never driven one of these puppies, they are a little hard to handle. MJOL got the hang of it right off the bat, but for me it is a little counter intuitive. But hey, chasing friends and family around the back yard with it can be fun!
Until our next baking adventure.
