Molasses Bread…
Just one of the many memories I have of Nan. I remember the smell of freshly baked bread as a child when I would come in from the outdoor playground of Sandy Cove. Nan would always have lunch for me ready and many times I would get delicious bread smothered in molasses and butter. Yum! Sleep well Nan… love you! xoxo
