While sitting in the airport for 3 hours the other night waiting for my plane to arrive from Dallas. Can I have one tangent here. If I'm in Chicago and I'm flying to Boston, but the plane I'm flying on is stuck in Dallas due to bad weather, why in God's name do I have to wait for that freaking plane. Doesn't the airline have any other planes that they could put us on. Why make a plane full off people, who's flight was supposed to be at 6:00, wait until 9:30 to board a plane. Why, you'd think that they could get us another plane. That's all I'm saying.
While I was waiting for my plane to arrive from the longhorn state, you could say I had more than enough time to browse the local book and magazine store. I came across a magazine called Healthy Living, it was really great and loaded with fall inspired baking recipes. This recipe is from that magazine. My hope is to make a lot of the recipes highlighted in the magazine because they all seemed so healthy and tasty.
I don't think that I let this bake enough, I really think it needed 5 more minutes, but it was still delicious, and without butter, oil or eggs in the bread it really is super healthy and easy to make. Do yourself a favor, make this bread, it is really wonderful in the morning all toasty and warm.
