Date Nut Bread

Where did the week go?  It whizzed by. Although I am behind in post drafts and need to figure out what I am doing for Nutella Day tomorrow, all that must wait. First, I must hustle off to the teen’s last basketball game of the season. The team is 19-1 and in the playoffs.  What a season!

*Update: They won! Their last game of the season, the team finished undefeated at home…the first in OHS history! Now, we’re ready for the playoffs. Go team!

The teen’s energy is amazing.  He is going, going, going!  His only pause will be tomorrow, as he asked me to drive him to the mall.  Valentine’s Day shopping.  Ha!  Who knows what he’ll pick up in between the time I drop him off and pick him up for dinner.

I will worry about that tomorrow.  Right now, as I head out the door, I will leave you with a quick bread with my favorite…dates. The sweet fruit food is great for reducing cholesterol and high.  For me, however, I particularly like that dates boost energy and have selenium, the antioxidant that lend a hand to the thyroid. This is a good combo because, as I fall victim to thyroid issues, fatigue is often a side effect.  Who needs the sugary jolt of Red Bull when you can enjoy dates?

I made this bread on a weekend and it played various roles throughout the week.  It was a snack, toasted for breakfast, and, when sliced thinly, served as bread for a turkey sandwich. Cool right?

Since I am hosting this edition of Weekend Herb Blogging, I thought dates would be a fitting participant.  Next week’s host?  Astrid from Paulchen’s Foodblog.   (Grazie to Haalo for managing Kalyn’s event, and Bri giving is the Italian version!)

I didn’t even realize it was Nutella Day. Nothing planned, but I do have a spoon and a jar.

Date-nut bread is one of the first baking goods I made after moving to California. I also like dates a lot: a date stuffed with half a walnut is one of my favorite treats. I like the pecan decoration on top.
