Cinnamon is good for the heart, did you know that? I guess you know where this is going. HeWho likes cinnamon. So I suppose I will need to incorporate some cinnamon into his diet.
Today we are having cinnamon bread. Made with applesauce. Healthy. I am writing as it bakes. While I was about the business of mixing it, I was, as usual, interrupted several times.
When I get interrupted, I tend to, maybe, make a mistake. I had the pans prepared and the oven preheating. A past-due tenant came in to make a payment for less that the promised amount. This annoyed me. He kept proclaiming that he always paid his bills and was not a dead beat. Perhaps he should not have said that to someone who has been asking for his rent to be paid for the past 3 weeks. This made me point out to him that his actions did not make me trust him for the money. Like some men, he seems to think that I do not have the last word. He wants to tell me he "made arrangements" with HeWho does not handle tenants.
I was pretty riled as I headed back to my mixing of ingredients. We all know that Olive oil is the "good" oil. Canola, corn and vegetable are permissible, as well. Coconut and palm kernel oil are not. I only mention them because I was surprised to learn that Cool Whip (something HeWho really likes) is made with coconut and palm kernel oils.
So, still annoyed, I reached into the cabinet for the vegetable oil to add to the wet ingredients, but apparently picked up the olive oil. As I mixed the wet ingredients into the dry, I noticed that the batter was a bit on the yellow side. I look at the spice jars on the counter to make sure I did not use turmeric instead of cinnamon. That was fine and I had already replaced the bottle of oil to the cabinet.
Only thing left to do was to taste it. Distinct flavor of olive oil. Not exactly unpleasant, but not the taste I was going for. I can smell the olive oil as it bakes. Maybe just because I know it's there? The finished product will tell the tale. My only dilemma is whether or not to tell HeWho? I was planning to share with other campers and wonder if they need to know. Perhaps I will make that decision after I taste the bread for myself.
P.S. It tastes good!
