Whole-wheat Strawberry Bread

whole-wheat strawberry bread

I hate seeing something opened in my fridge or pantry which is left unfinished. In short, I hate leftovers. Although frankly speaking I give quite a loose meaning to "leftover": anything left unfinished. Less-than-half jar of jam is a leftover, although it won't expire until perhaps next year. Half pack of dairy goods (cheese, butter, etc.) is also a leftover, because B once told me not to keep them opened for too long in the fridge.

That morning I opened the fridge and found an almost-empty jar of strawberry jam. I had kept it on purpose - strawberry jam is a good basic pantry stuff for, say, layered cake. Just add some buttercream and you'll ready for a company! But apparently, butter cake is never my favorite cake, and that idea of making layer cake had never come true. When friends come to my house, I had always baked something else, and perhaps will always do so.

So I gave up and decided to finish it that morning. It was Sunday. A nice weekend should start with a nice breakfast, right? Oh, and healthy too...
