After a lot of travelling this fall, staying in San Antonio for Thanksgiving was a welcome opportunity to relax and give thanks for wonderful friends. Summers in south Texas are miserable, but it means that we can eat Thanksgiving dinner outside! I baked a large, braided loaf of cranberry-walnut celebration bread from the Bread Baker's Apprentice. Between the enriched dough and the sweetened cranberries, it's a rich bread fit for a feast and delicious toasted. We had the leftovers for breakfast on Black Friday. Then we sat on the couch through three James Bond movies, far from the maddening crowds! I hope you all had restful breaks spent with loved ones. Now here comes Christmas!
