Strawberry Applesauce Bread

July 18, 2012


I stayed home all day today!  Actually, I just lied.  I went on the sweatiest run of my life this morning so I wouldn’t feel guilty for staying home all day.  I thought the heat was supposed to break today?  I’ve  had it with this heat!!!  I don’t want to go out!  I don’t want to do anything!  My house wasn’t even getting cold and I had the thermostat set to 68!  Don’t tell Marc!!! I did have my air conditioning units checked and cleaned last week, so my house is finally extra cold.  Just the way I like it.  I also have to admit I have a crush on my heating and air conditioning guy.  Ok, I’ll be more exact I have a crush on BOTH of my heating and air conditioning guys.  No, I’m not cheating they both work at the same company:)))

Today was very relaxing.  I caught up on all the laundry,  looked through a million recipes that I can’t wait to try, and cleaned out my refrigerator.  I came across some strawberries that I sliced the other day and tossed with some brown sugar.  I made these to go with a strawberry shortcake recipe, but we all thought it stunk.  The strawberries were totally yummy though, so I rumbled through some recipes and came across an applesauce cake that looked good and improvised.  I bet mine is better.  This may go down as one of my favorites.
