With Any Luck I Will Post This Before Midnight

....Made it, just barely. Busy days lately, but I managed to get a Irish themed meal on the table. The rainbow landed in my Irish coffee and that is why I am up all night. For dinner we had our traditional corned beef with Colcannon and soda bread. Hope you had a fun and luck of the Irish day!

My soda bread was nice with dried cranberries for a twist away from sultanas. This is the first time I used caraway in this bread, as well.

3 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
1 tbsp. caraway seeds
2 handfuls dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 deg. Butter a loaf pan, I used a round Pyrex baking dish. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well to a nice batter. Fold in cranberries and seeds. Pour into pan and bake for an hour.

I am busy with projects!

This one is a secret for now. Any guesses?

Anyway, Lucie and I are working at this project and it will be revealed soon.

I have several knitting projects going on too. I found my favourite wool on Ebay in my favourite colour! I don't know what to make with it, but will soon figure it out.
