Bread and cake

This is a part of our supper tonight, You will find the recipe on my picture blog in the side bar.

Believe me, this is one of the best blueberry cakes I've ever eaten.I was in a baking mood today ,so I made 2 loaf's of french bread and one regular loaf.

I realize this picture is in the wrong place..but blogger keeps deleting it!! anywhere else!!
I'm not saying they are big, but I did let them rise a little too much. They are 17 inches long!!!I will freeze one whole. Cut the other in half.One will be used for spaghetti.The other for sandwiches.
This is the regular loaf in the oven w/ bbq chicken.
Our menu: bbq chicken, ranch beans,shells and cheese, fresh tomatoes,sweet and sour cucumbers, bread, and blueberry cake..
This one of the plums I made jelly out of.Very tart.
This is pear preserves.I finished them about 11:00pm last night.
Homemade marinara, I just added spices and sugar till it suited my taste. In the back ground you can see the gallon and a 1/2 of pickles I put up yesterday.
I hope everyone had a good weekend...its been a busy one here for sure. Tomorrow wash sheets and hang them out.It's gonna be 100F tomorrow.Gonna save the power for the AC. We are gonna need it.
Hubby took the kids for ice cream today to cool them off. When they came back they put swim suits on and he sprayed them with the water hose. If I hadn't been waiting on the cake to come out I might have joined them!!! LOL.
Time for this old gal to do the 2 B's.... Bath and bed. Night everyone, take care and God bless.

Is this the blueberry cake recipe you emailed me? It looks delicious!!! I think you and I have a lot in common....I LOVE to bake!!! Especially breads!!! Today I just made a batch of pizza crusts, personal size, like the ones I showed on my blog a while back. Made large sandwich rolls yesterday. I never buy bread....can't stand store-bought bread!

I don't can anymore as there is just me. I do freeze fruits, though.

Your dinner menu sounded sooooooo good!!!!

Have a great week, Donna!

(((((( HUGS ))))))

Wish I had a big slice of the bread and a big piece of the cake right now. They both look really good and I'm getting hungry. We had an ice cream social at church tonight but that's not real food.

There's a little something for you on my blog in case you see this before you read your email.

Love y'all Sister.

I'm reading this before breakfast and it all looks yummy. I love to cook, but have never had much success with bread making. Your rolls look so tempting!

I made your blueberry cake! Yum! I wonder though if I did something wrong as it was about half as high as your cake picture. Does it really only have one cup plus one teaspoon of flour? Also I didn't have any kosher salt and used just regular but that shouldn't have any effect on how high it would rise. Did you say you doubled it and put it all in the same pan? That may be my problem. Any way it was delicious and I will be making it again soon!!!! Thanks!
