It came upon a midnight clear that….I totally have been listening to Christmas music. Can you tell? Ahem! It came upon a midnight clear that Melanie dreamed of a delicious cranberry studded bread with oozy white chocolate drizzle. And after that she made her dream become reality.
Here it is in all it’s beauty. Ready to be enjoyed or wrapped beautifully and passed to neighbor or friend. Actually this is perfect for gifts. Hmm…how many loaves would I have to make to give one to every friend and neighbor? 1, 2, 3, 567…OK that’s a lot of loaves to make but I can start somewhere with someone!
How about you? Who comes to mind as someone that could use an extra dose of blessing today?
