Nifty Thrifty Tues. Finds

Check out the sweet little tray I found at T. J. Maxx this week!

End of season sale & only $2.50!!!

I immediately had to fill it with something & since I had

a carton of Eggnog that I wanted to use up,

(Hubby requested I buy it & then had ONE glass & was tired of it!)

~~insert rolled eyes~~

I made this recipe I found at Cooks.com.


2 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 c. eggnog
1/3 c. oil
1/2 c. nuts, chopped
1/2 c. cherries, cut up

Mix dry ingredients. Add eggnog, egg and oil. Mix well. Pour into greased bread pans. (One large or two small)
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes. Test center for doneness.

This made a tasty sweet treat, perfect for dessert

with a cup of coffee or tea.

As you can see, hubby got into it before I could even take a picture!

I'm joining Linda at

Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays

I also found 12 of these beautiful placemats with matching napkins on sale.

Stop back on Wed. evening & you'll see the tablescape I did with them.

Thanks to Linda for hosting & thank YOU for stopping by The Gazebo House.

  1. That looks so yummy. Now I will have to go out and buy some eggnog!

  2. Your plate is so cute and at a great price! Can't wait to see the tablescape and wishin' I could have a piece of the bread:@)

  3. Your pretty fall plate is perfect for that yummy eggnog cherry bread. I stopped by Home Goods yesterday, but no luck. I'm looking forward to seeing your new placemats and napkins.

  4. Love the plate Rett, our TJ's didn't have much this year for the holiday. I did pass up a plate at Home Goods when I was in Ohio that I could kick myself over now. Me rolling eyes....

    That bread looks inviting, I've never tried eggnog but I sure would be willing to give this bread a spin. Thanks for sharing the recipe and I look forward to your tablescape this week.

  5. Well, I love TJ Max and can't wait for the end of the month when we head down to WA and I can visit one again!
    The tray.....the egg nog cherry loaf.......yummy~!

  6. Oh, I wish our TJ Maxx had this one. I would have certainly grabbed it up if I'd seen it. Thanks for the recipe. This looks yummy.
    Have a beautiful day! ~ Sarah

  7. Hi Rett!
    I love shopping at T.J. Maxx ( and Home Goods and Marshalls..lol)! I really have to restrain myself sometimes to not get carried away by all the goodies or sale.

    That is an adorable plate and the Eggnog Cherry Nut Bread on it looks so delicious! That is a nice recipe to make when the holidays roll around and eggnog is so plentiful!

  8. Hi Rett
    Yum!!! I love to bake also.
    Thank you for visiting My Cozy Corner. I love your blog and will be back for another look.

  9. The plate is absolutely charming!! I love it. And I have to try this recipe and save it for Thanksgiving. It is SO colorful!

    Looking forward to your tablescape!


  10. The bread looks yummy. I think I might have to make that recipe soon. Thanks!

  11. Oh Rett, This recipe sure sounds like it will be good! It has everything I like in it. The only eggnog I like is from United Dairy Farmers. No grocery store brand compares, IMHO!! Re: your cute new tray- Don't you just love bargains?
    hugs, Sue

  12. I look forward the the tablescape with your new placemats. Thank you for the nutbread recipe and for stopping by my post. Please, come for a visit any time. Cherry Kay

  13. Hello, You have found some great finds! Your bread looks delicious. I am wondering if you could use dried cherries in the recipe? I hope you are having a lovely week!
