Books and Bread

Hi everyone,

My friend got me hooked on these blogs. I found a few that are great. It is a very time consuming task. I wish my laptop were working. Never by a TOSHIBA. It is junk and not worth the money. Is has hardly been used and out of five tech people no one can fix it. It just shuts off whenever it wants. Usually when I need it to stay on it will shut off, black screen. They say it is heat. Really, how hot can it get in just one or two short minutes? Defect.

In reading a blog, I found out that Adam Campbell is coming out with a book in December called “The Big Book of Exercises.” This book appears to have every single possible exercise there is. It sounds like it is going to be the most comprehensive exercise book around. Beginners and experienced can use this book. The best thing about it is there is going to be a women’s version and a men’s version. For those of you who want to look it up here is the info.

Four hundred and sixty four pages… Yikes.

I would like to pre-order so I get it in time for Christmas, but hate to buy books unseen. If anyone gets a peek, let me know if this book is any good. It has a lot of potential.

As you all know, or those who follow me, I have a garden and this year I planted Spaghetti Squash, why, who knows. I do not care for squash. I have to do the sneaky chef thing to get it down. I just tried this great recipe for Spaghetti Squash Bread. Yummy, Yummy. Those of you who bake, you can change up the recipe in many ways. Have fun. Hope you enjoy it.

Spaghetti Squash Bread

1 1/4 cup Flour (I used 1 cup WW and 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose)
4 tblsp sugar (I used 4 tblsp Splenda)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
Dash of salt
2 med. eggs
2 tbsp oil (I used EVOO)
1/4 c. orange juice
2/3 c. spaghetti squash strands, cooked
2 tblsp raisins

Stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, spices and salt. Set aside. Beat together eggs, oil and juice. Gradually beat dry ingredients mixture into egg mixture. Stir in squash and raisins. Pour batter into loaf pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes until golden brown. Makes about 20 slices at 65 calories each.

I pierced the spaghetti squash tons of times with a fork and cooked it in the microwave for 10 12 minutes and I let it stand for five minutes before removing the seeds and shredding it into strands. (You could also bake it in the oven at 375 for one hour.)

Let me know if you try it and how you like it.

I have PT tomorrow and a busy weekend.

I hope you all have a great weekend and remember, keep it clean.
