Cranberry orange bread with just a touch of orange is perfect for this time of year! It is a moist and delicious bread, that is made with cranberries. You could also add walnuts if you like. I didn’t because I have little ones around and I know that younger kids usually aren’t big on walnuts. I love adding them for just a little crunch, but it is simply up to you. Cranberry orange bread makes a nice bread to give to the neighbors or just to snack on for yourself. Try it and I know that you will be glad that you did!
How was your Thanksgiving? We traveled to Idaho to have dinner with my son. We spent the night at my father in law’s home because he has more room. The next morning before we headed to my son’s home, my son let us know that he and his wife had been up all night SICK! Oh no!!! They decided that they had gotten food poisoning from a restaurant that they had eaten at the night before. My father-in-law and his wife were going to eat dinner at her son’s home. My son called at 12:00 pm and said that he was trying to make green bean casserole and so we decided to head on over. My son and his wife didn’t eat, but the rest of us had a nice dinner. And afterwards we even enjoyed some fabulous pie.
After that three of my children headed out for Black Friday shopping. I know that that is something that they all enjoy doing, but I am a little boring and I do not love to go. Maybe some year, I will just surprise them and go with them. I am not sure they will like that, because you know how moms are, they simply tell you that you don’t need stuff and to keep your money for a rainy day. I guess that I can say that because I feel like I have way too much stuff!
Anyway, I hope that you get a chance to try out this amazing Cranberry orange bread! It was very moist and my family really enjoys it. Just make sure that it gets cooked all the ways through. I have thought that is was done before and it was just a little doughy on top. However, don’t burn it! When the wooden pick comes out clean, then you are good to go. Happy Cyber Monday! I hope you find everything that you are looking for!!!
