Happy Wednesday everyone!
Our Ugly Christmas Party was a success on Saturday night :) The sweaters were fantastic, the food and drinks were a flowin' and my head hit the pillow at 3am. Goodtimes!
Are you on the home stretch in your Christmas planning and shopping? Do you have teachers to buy for? Between our two kids and two different schools, we have 6 teachers to give to. As a child, I remember my dad making cheese loaves at Christmas time. We would give one to our school bus driver, the mailman etc. So, on Sunday night I pulled out the yummy recipe and baked 8 loaves (I knew that Mr. Fix-it was hoping I would make extra).
So, each teacher will be receiving a loaf and a Starbucks gift card from my kiddies this year. Here's the recipe...it's easy, super tasty (especially if you toast the slices) and they freeze really well!
Dad's Cheese Bread
- 2 cups of flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp of dry mustard
- 1 tsp onion salt
- 1/2 tsp of ground or dried oregano
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tbs melted butter
- 1 1/4 cups of shredded chedder cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix all dry ingredients together
3. Mix all wet ingredients together (add the cheese last)
4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry all at once and stir just until combined
5. Add dough to a greased loaf pan
6. Bake for 40 - 45 mins (I baked mine for 40 mins)
Makes 1 loaf.
Once they were cooled, I wrapped them twice in saran wrap and then foil. To make it pretty, I tied a piece of red yarn around the loaf, attached a gift tag to it and froze them. All they need is the gift card stuck on top and VOILA...a fresh.fabulous.sophisicated (and yummy) present for your child's teacher, your boss, your friends or the bus driver.
Keep it Beautiful.
