The Somerset Ridge Painters are definitely ready for the Vineyard's Art in the Vines!
We have been participating in the 3 Ps......painting, partying,and posing for a photograph! Aren't we a fun bunch of gals? It may look like I am sucking my thumb, but actually, we were smoking cigars!
Our dear Kristin Goering was not present...but she will be there for Art in the Vines!
How about one of our favorite recipes? In the autumn of 2009,we held a mini Art in the Vines.There were 8 of us and we had so much fun! I made a loaf of Fig Bread to celebrate the day. It has always been a favorite of mine!
So perfect with a glass of Somerset Ridge wine! Hope you enjoy it.
Vineyard Fig Bread
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. buttermilk
1 c. sifted enriched flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. rolled oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 c. chopped dried figs
1/2 c. chopped nuts
2 tbsp. chopped candied orange peel
1/4 c. melted butter
Beat egg until light; add sugar gradually, beating until fluffy. Add buttermilk. Sift together flour, soda and salt; add to egg mixture, stirring lightly until combined. Fold in rolled oats, figs, nuts and orange peel. Lightly stir in melted butter. Bake in greased paper lined bread pan (1 pound size, I order from King Arthur Flour) in moderate oven (350 degrees) 50 minutes to 1 hour. Cool. Frost top with a thin confectioners' sugar frosting (make by combining 1 cup confectioners' sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoon orange juice). Let frosting drip down onto sides. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/
