When my friend Mandi was out visiting this past weekend she brought me this adorable Give Thanks banner from Burlap2 It's a great little business owned by one of Mandi's friends; you should check out her other work on her Facebook page... it's got some really adorable stuff that you just may want to order... :)
I should do something a bit more special with the banister now that I see this photo... maybe some bittersweet somewhere... now if only I could figure out where to put it so Drew wouldn't think he should eat it...
Isn't this adorable?
Okay, now what says "fall" like homemade bread?
After the Scot Trot race I managed this weekend we had a bunch of bananas left over from the post-race snack table so I made a new recipe for Banana Bread today and really liked it... it's a little more fluffy than I'm used to but it was good... and would be excellent with chocolate chips. Seriously, what wouldn't be better with chocolate chips? :)
Ingredientsmakes 1 - 9x5 inch loaf
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
The original recipe was found here on All Recipes.com but the photo is from my own cooking experiment.
Now I am off to read some of my new book club book... I know a story is going to be funny when on the second page it has the line "no need to get your knickers in a knot". I love British and Austrailian chick lit. Or American, for that matter, I'm not picky. :)
