Tonight the chef brought home cold meat and salads, so we enjoyed delicious deli plates, as you can see below.
After dinner, I took one last look through the Your Money’s Worth in Food recipe book that I mentioned a couple of days ago. I found one more favourite recipe that I’ll share here. I used to make these quite often, and they were yummy, with a cakey texture, and lots of good ingredients.
- ¾ c sifted flour (I use all purpose)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- ¾ c whole wheat flour
- 1½ c quick cooking rolled oats
- 1 c seedless raisins
- ½ c shortening
- 1 c brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 c grated raw carrot
- Sift and measure flour and sift with baking powder, soda, salt and spices
- Combine with whole wheat flour, rolled oats, and raisins.
- Cream shortening with brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well. Stir in carrots.
- Gradually add dry mixture, mixing well.
- Drop mixture from teaspoon on greased baking sheets. Bake in moderate oven, 350°F, for 12 to 15 minutes.
