Christmas is only 10 days away, and the year has gone by so fast that before you realize...2014 is just around the corner. I wish I had something more exciting to post, other than my average baking stuff. This super lemony and not too sweet bread was so easy to make and not planning to bother to post it...only when half of a loaf was gone, that I decided to take a photo of it and said..."why not?"...so here it is, and the recipe is right inside the container of the glazed chopped lemon peel that is only available at this time of the year, along with the glazed candied cherries and pineapples that brings back such great memories from years of past Christmas!
As you can see, this is a Florida local product and it's quite fresh and extremely potent in lemon flavor.
This past Saturday morning; since the sun decided to come out for a change after every day of cloudy and rainy weather, it was so nice to browse around and check out the little Green Market...much smaller than the one we have in West Palm Beach...but this was a really nice way to spend an hour by myself!
As I was passing through, I noticed this Rasta man weaving what it seemed like palm tree leaves at the flower stand.
There were all kind of local vendors selling different things...including homemade breads, rolls, and pastries; jams, jellies, handmade jewelry, candles, soaps, clothes...you name it!
What you see in the background are some colorful Tye-dye materials...notice the Intracoastal water on the right side...gentle breeze, and perfect mild and pleasantly warm temperature in the middle of December.
This is the bridge from Lake Worth that takes you across to the island of Palm Beach...otherwise known as S. Ocean Blvd.
The building in the background is a small hotel that used the be the Howard Johnson, years ago..same building, just remodeled.
Of all things...I was able to find some amazing and lovely peppers, hot, and sweet. I promised my granddaughter Gabby that I would make some pepper jelly for her. She loves the pepper jelly that my daughter buys for her at the WPB Green Market and that one is soo good, not too hot, and not too sweet. Hope I can make one just as good. Did google a few, and found some other good recipes on Pinterest. I love this basket, which I got from Goodwill for $1.99 last year!
Thank you for your continuous support, and friendship...I hope you are all doing well and getting ready for a wonderful holiday season! xo
