My Yearly Lament

Every year just around this time I long for Thomas's Date Nut Bread. I troll the grocery stores hoping against hope that it will magically appear...But they just don't make it anymore.

Yes I know there are countless numbers of date nut bread recipes out there...from Aunt Martha's to the kind you bake in tomato soup cans. I have tried a number of them. They just aren't the same.

There was something about peeling that cellophane off the sticky sweet loaf...taking a whiff and smearing it with a healthy schmeer of Philly. Those days are gone ...and my daughter will never know that rapturous first bite....

So with that being said....Here's my gift link to you...

The Automat's Creamed Spinach Recipe. (just scroll down a bit)

1. I am sooo sorry my friend. And I am happy to say this was not my fault.

I am a well know killer of beloved food items.

If I like it, it will get discontinued. It is inevitable. I have killed breads, salad dressings, ice creams, and many, many other items over the year. But I never tried Thomas's.

Thanks for the Automat link! There are some other yummy sounding recipes there too!
