I had the privilege this last weekend of having my Nephew John my niece Tamra, and her cute little family stay with me. Oh how I love having them in my home, and never want them to leave. The past few years have been so great for me, I have developed an awesome relationship with Tamra, one that I truly cherish. Tamra had mentioned to me that I had her "mothers hands" and that meant so much to me. I know that Tamra has missed her mother so deeply, since her passing three years ago, and I know I could never fill that void for her, but in a special way she has helped fill that void for me. I love you Tamra!!!
Here's an idea I STOLE from Room to Inspire. it cost me approx. $7.00 it could have been cheaper but I spent too much on the frame (I'm a sucker for anything that sparkles!) All you need is *egg*Ribbon*tiny frame*hot glue gun. And there you have it! A center piece!
So lately I've been having a little tummy problems, so my diet consists of very little fat. I've been dying for something good. and I found it on Home Sweet Home! THANK GOODNESS!!
2 eggs, beaten
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease or line 10 muffin cups.
In a medium bowl, combine eggs and bananas. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, sugar and baking soda. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture. Fold in walnuts if desired. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
**Since I use a mini muffin pan, I adjust the baking time to 12 minutes or so, then check on them from there***
Every Year on St. Patricks Day my household wakes up to trails of four leaf clovers that lead to a pile of goodies (gold coins included) that little Leprechauns leave. This year Joey and I thought that if we put out a pot of gold they would fill it up! Wish us LUCK!
I just love those simple little traditions, don't you?
