"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Baking for Sixteen - Apple Bread, Anyone?

The project:
Bake loaves of Apple Walnut Bread for friends and neighbors.

I usually do this over the course of weeks, but because we've been out of town so much this holiday season, today was The Day to get it done. Mission accomplished.

Several hours.

Why bother?
Every winter holiday season I bake something for friends and neighbors. It started with fudge, then evolved to a great toffee recipe I received from a friend's mom, and in more recent years various desert-style breads have been involved. This year I let the sweets go in favor of the marginally more healthy bread.

Worth it?
Yes - no one's ever complained about receiving this bread. Then again, who complains when she receives gifts of food?
