I was born in Boston. I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life. I still cannot get used to the weather!
This past week was freezing! Well, not literally, but it's been in the 60's during the day and 50's at night. I'd previously bought a lot of salad greens assuming that it was still summer, but nooooooooo. The weather changed and I was freezing eating salad. I even took out my winter pajamas! Last night I made soup and some corn muffins for a lunch that would finally warm me up. I had to cook quickly after work, so no photos or recipes for those. This food blogging thing takes a lot of time, so sometimes I make food and don't blog about it. I know. I'm so selfish.
Well of course since I made the soup, the humidity is rising and it's going to be in the 80's and 90's over the next few days. I'm not complaining. I'm glad the warmth is back and now I have some soup in my freezer. I did get in some more baking tonight though before the heat arrives tomorrow. I've had some strawberries in my refrigerator that had to be used or they were going to be tossed out within the next few days.
Last week I saw a recipe for Strawberry Bread on Ari's Blog, Baking & Books. I adapted the recipe just a bit. I used vanilla extract, because I didn't have almond, and I used one teaspoon. I put the strawberries in the blender and ended up with under a cup, so I added 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt. The rest I kept the same. The batter is such a pretty pink and was quite tasty. This bread was really quick and easy to make.
