This week I changed my snowman quilt in the hall for this fun free pieced house quilt I made in 2005.
I bought Mega ball lottery tickets on Tuesday - that was fun. I didn't win.
I made Ba-Hanna bread to send to my daughter at college. Hanna loves banana bread, so I've renamed it in her honor at our house.
We've tried a lot of recipes but this one is our new favorite. It's from All Recipes.com (which has a wonderful iPad app) click here for recipe. I decided to make 2 loaves. I use 2 bowls to keep things straight.
I think the secret is the fact that the bananas are sliced, not mashed and it also has sour cream - delicious!
Since I was making 2 loaves, I decided to try one with Splenda baking blend for me. It is a blend of sugar and sweetener. The batter looks the same.
But wait; it didn't bake the same.
After a few minutes of cooling, I had a big sink hole in my loaf.
I carved around it and I have to say that it tastes great. I lost quite a bit of loaf in the middle, but the rest was good.
It was fun to buy flowers for a vase that I won at the White Elephant exchange at the retreat. It was my friend Margarets, which makes even more special to me.
For mega fun, I bought another set of mega lottery tickets for tonights drawing. You have to play to win, right?
Have a fun weekend everyone!
