If you’re tired of your traditional Christmas sweet bread, why not mix it up with this festive Cranberry Eggnog Loaf Cake?
Today I was chatting with the nurse who came to draw my blood for my insurance exam. She said, “oh I see you’re an early holiday decorator like I am” while she admired my fully decked out house.
I told her that I’m the type of person that doesn’t like tasks hanging over my head, so I immediately tackle anything I can get done in hopes that will free up time later for me to rest and clear my mind for future creative thinking.
It’s not even December 1st and I have almost all my holiday shopping done, much of it wrapped, everything decorated, and I have my holiday baking day penciled on my calendar.
I have two big pushes of work in December then I’m hoping to take a couple of weeks off to reset at the end of the month.
This year has flown by in a whirlwind of interesting work projects and world wide travel. I am truly a lucky girl……but I could use a break.
I’m dreaming of a string of lazy days where I can bake beautiful treats like this holiday cranberry eggnog loaf. I’ll enjoy a slice while drinking coffee, and wearing fuzzy socks. Maybe even soaking up a few sunny rays on my back porch.
It’s hard to find a moment to pause these days. Life is hectic and exciting, and I might have a bit of FOMO, so I’m always on the go.
As 2017 winds down, these winter days are the perfect time to just take a pause, reflect on the year, and enjoy a delicious slice of breakfast cake. Heck, maybe I’ll even skip a few workouts.
Ok, maybe I won’t take it that far, but I am going to make a real effort to relax. My brain needs a vacation.
I’m looking forward to many new an exciting projects and adventures in 2018, but in order to be the very best I can be, I’m going to need a bunch of naps, a few glasses of eggnog, and a couple of slices of a cranberry studded holiday breakfast cake.
Let the countdown to chill out begin!
