I used a leftover scrap of fabric that I dyed years ago..thank goodness for those little gems;)
And the Hubby insisted the spider needed little beady red eyes....
Ta! Da! Done;)
I went to bed Friday night dreaming of what I should do next...I woke up to housework on the brain!! So, as traditional (if you can call it that), after I get a project done, I tend to go about the house and catch up on things that were neglected during my inspirational frenzy...toilet cleaning, laundry, dusting, etc. I was going through the pantry when I found a half bag of chocolate chips and some trail mix. I threw them in this...
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Recipe as follows:
1 Cup packed Brown Sugar, dark
7 TB Olive or Grapeseed Oil
2 LG Eggs
1 1/3 Cup Mashed Super Ripe Bananas
1 Cup Regular Oats (Not Quick Oats!!)
1/2 Cup Soymilk, or Whole Milk
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 TB Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract (real is better)
1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Trail Mix or Any Sort of Nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put all ingrediants into large bowl. Mix until well blended, but not longer than that as it tends to make the bread tough. Grease large loaf pan with butter. Cook for approximately 45 minutes, or until knife inserted into center comes out clean. Let cool on rack.
I've been making variations on this recipe for years now. I love it. This loaf is going in the freezer for later this season. I would have some now, but I'm trying to keep the calorie intake under control.
Not only did I wake up to housework on the brain yesterday, I had Christmas tunes going through my head!!! What in the world??? The Hubby and I haven't "celebrated" Christmas in years. We just got tired of how it has changed into such a commercial venue. I think that Christmas should be a time of reflection and gratitude, not a day of how much did you spend on me expectations.
I'm considering making stuff for people this year that I know will appreciate some homemade, handmade goods. I'm not going to the store to purchase anything other than supplies to make stuff. I think I might be more interested in the holiday this year because of the grandbaby, who knows;)
But in the mean time, I have a few more goodies I need to put together for my mom's birthday package.
Enjoy the day, and Happy Quilting!!
