Hi there! Today is the day – my girls are so excited to see Grandma & Grandpa. I’ve done just about all the scrubbing and vacuuming that is going to happen! We woke up to snow falling yesterday, and so I put the girls to work. Ella and Emmalie are easily motivated with a quarter, and each happily earned a dollar for the extra chores.
Thankfully it stopped snowing and they went out to play for the afternoon. I’ve gotten stir crazy with them inside ALL the time! I think spring is worse than winter around here – snow is easy to play in, but not mud. uck!
While the girls played outside and Owen napped, I scrubbed the kitchen and made banana bread. Our snack supply has been low, and the bananas were turning, perfect solution!
2 1/2 C flour
1 C sugar
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 TB vegetable oil
3/4 C milk
1 C mashed bananas (2-3 medium)
1 C finely chopped nuts
Heat your oven to 350 and grease 1 large or 2 small loaf pans.
Measure all ingredients into large mixer bowl; beat on medium until just combined.
Pour into pans and bake 55-65 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Let me know if you try it. You won’t be disappointed :)
I want to thank We All Sew for featuring my 1/4″ seams tutorial this week. I hope more quilters are inspired to keep stitching :)
