Ginger Loaf

We moved a few weeks ago. Despite the fact that we only moved within a kilometer radius, it was a pretty tough move as we moved out of a 4 bedroom house, where my office was as well, into a 1 bedroom suit. I've realized you can accumulate a lot of stuff that you don't really need, for no good reason! I think the hardest part of this move was separating our home and my office. Its nice to be able to walk to my office (its 300m away from home), but when moving, everything seemed to be all over the place! Oh, and I have a commercial grade treadmill. To help us move it, I bribed one of the NTC triathletes (Matt) with baked goods.

Here is the recipe for the loaf I baked him. Apparently it was gone within a couple of hours...
