    Good morning, everybody…

    Today is “National Date Nut Bread Day.”

    From: “The General Foods Kitchens Cookbook”

    Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 59 – 1084

    Delicious Date-Nut Bread

    3 cups sifted flour
    3 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon soda
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1 egg, well beaten
    1 1/4 cups milk (whole)
    1/4 cup shortening, melted
    1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
    1 cup finely cut dates

    Measure sifted flour, add baking powder, soda, salt, and granulated sugar, and sift again.
    Add brown sugar.
    Combine egg and milk. Add to the flour mixture, add shortening, then mix only enough to dampen flour.
    Fold in nuts and dates.
    Pour batter into 9×5×3-inch loaf pan or into two 8×4×3-inch loaf pans, lined on bottoms with paper.
    Bake in moderate oven (350°F.) for 1 hour and 5 minutes for large loaf, or about 50 minutes for small loaves.
    Cool. Wrap in waxed paper and store overnight before slicing.
    For one small loaf ,use half of all ingredients in above recipe, using 2/3 cup milk.
    Bake in one 8×4×3-inch loaf pan, lined on bottom with paper, in moderate oven (350°F.) for 50 minutes.

    On this day in 1921 Margaret Gorman, then 16, won the Atlantic City Pageant and took home the “Golden Mermaid” trophy. The pageant officials later dubbed her the first “Miss America.”

    good morning and happy sunday locos. Switzerland is still celebrating Knabenschiessen (it’s also on the list for tomorrow so another day to practice the name). Israel is observing Tzom Gedaliah – this is a fast day and Yom Kippur is also coming up so there will be some more fasting. Alexikakos can you start working on break the fast recipes?
    Spain has a few holidays today: Día de Extremadura, Día de Asturia, and Virgen de la Victoria. Looking them up they seem to be the same holiday – celebrating the birth of Mary.
    I also saw on one calender that it’s grandparents day. I didn’t bother to confirm that, but let’s add that to the celebrations!!!

    I see that Tia Carmen has a direct line to the Virgin Mary. She can see her light shine anywhere. Her Son must have taught her how to shine. ;-)

    Good Sunday morning Everyone!

    Yes, Akenta I have Grandparents Day on my calendar as well. I haven’t read it yet, but I would expect the Family Circus makes reference to it today.

    Hi DRY and CLEO!
    Do we have any Grandparents in the LOCOS yet, besides one missing Loco who is late returning?
    I should call my mom today to tell her that her grand children owe her a hug!

    cleo you dog you! For shame! :-D

    Good day for the NFL! Some GOOD games today! I hate that summer is winding down, but NFL FOOTBALL eases the pain a bit! :-D

    Good night all!

    SHIKA, TURD will return, when and if. I could send the Coyote out to get him, but that would be a waste of AJAX supplies. And in this economy, that’s too much money to waste.
