Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
This holidays are coming soon & I thought I would share my mother's carrot
bread receipe with you. Mother was born in Emerson, Mills County, Ia 1926.
It is easy & fast to make. The worse part is grating the carrots.
BETTY'S CARROT BREAD
Bake time 1 hour Temp. 325
3/4 C oil 1/4 tsp salt
1 C sugar 1 C grated carrots
1 & 1/2 C flour 2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda 1/2 C nuts (any kind, we like black walnuts
1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp vanilla
Mix ingredients all together in a bowl. It will look soupy but don't worry
that is the way it is suppose to look. Bake in a loaf pan.
I received this on another list I belong to & thought maybe some one on this
list might like to have this information
