still more plums from my tree in the freezer waiting to be 'jammed'
Then I took a coffee break and browsed my stash of Grass Roots magazines...
Baked a banana, date and walnut loaf...
Here's the basic recipe...
...which (of course)...I changed :)
Didn't have any self-raising wholemeal flour, so used a cup of white self-raising flour, 1/3 cup buckwheat flour, 1/3 cup spelt flour, 1/3 cup almond meal (to make it up to the 2 cups).
Instead of a teaspoon of cinnamon, I added a combination of cinnamon, mixed spice, allspice, nutmeg, cardamom and cloves (go easy with the cloves and nutmeg as the flavours are quite strong).
I added some chopped walnuts and chopped dates. I soaked the dates in the milk to soften a bit while I was preparing the other ingredients.
And before putting in the oven I sprinkled the top of the loaf with some brown sugar and cinnamon.
Picked up these potted plants from a country roadside/farm gate stall yesterday..
two English lavender, one jasmine and one sage
Reading Homespun (from my bookshelf)…
just finishing off the edging and sewing in a few ends on my 'green granny'
And picked up these ones from the library...

Loving these busy days, the cooler weather, and no (literal) headaches!!
