Handmade loaves (a seasonal blogging event)
Time for another blogging event! I mentioned in my Sundae Sunday post back in July that I was going to start hosting this sort of round-up about once per season. Today we have the Autumn event. I had a few different ideas for the theme. I thought about going with a specific fall ingredient (kind of like my friend Phyl's pumpkin round-up). My only hesitation was that not everyone likes the same things, and I wanted a theme that would appeal to everyone.
Then it hit me--loaves! Lots of things can be made in a loaf shape--yeast breads, quick breads, pound cake, terrines, even meat loaf. =) Now that we're getting some cooler weather (even here in Texas), it's much more appealing to turn on the oven, so loaves seemed like a perfect idea. Be on the lookout for a bunch of loaves this weekend, either from pans or freeform. Don't worry about missing some--I'll have a round-up of all the posts later this week.
If you'd like to join us in future events, you can leave a comment on this post or email me at diskitchennotebook at gmail dot com. Next up will be our 2nd annual Virtual Cookie Exchange, in early December!
