That's a nice sampler…

For me to POOP ON!!!!!

(If you don’t get the joke go YouTube Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.)

Shout out to Melissa C. who suggested it, and the dh for advocating stink lines. Thought I wouldn’t do it didn’t you? πŸ˜‰

So that’s it, my section of my Winter Neighborhood RR is done. I finished off the pond (there was 598 in that massive lot of thread I bought) and I didn’t feel like doing any complicated stitching this past weekend and this fit the bill.

Danielle, I went to buy the floss in 3 separate trips. My shortest receipt was 27 inches long. πŸ˜€

I have been stitching but it is for the Fair & Square Halloween exchange so I can’t show it. Which is too bad ’cause I love it. It is turning out so cute!

Instead I’ll show you something I could share, but won’t because I’m goingΒ  to eat the whole thing all by myself!

My favorite Banana Bread. Excellent in the extreme.

3 Tablespoons butter

1 Cup sugar (you can go 1/2 Splenda 1/2 sugar here if you want)

1 egg, beaten

1/2 Cup sour cream (I always use Daisy light sour cream)

2 Cups all purpose flour

2 Teaspoons baking powder (it has a experation date, make sure yours is fresh)

1 Teaspoon baking soda

1/2 Teaspoon salt

2 mashed bananas (techinally 3/4 Cup, but just mash 2 & use it all)

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

Combine butter & sugar, creaming until light and fluffy. Add egg & sour cream mix well.

Combine dry ingredients; alternately add to creamed mixture with banana (I add the lemon juice to the mashed bananas), mixing well afer each addition. Slop it into a greased and floured (use Pam for baking and make life easy) loaf pan. If the pan is around 8 1/2 x 41/2 x 3 it’ll be fine to use. Bake at 375 for 50 minutes or until you stick it with a skewer and it comes out clean. Leave it in the pan for about 15 minutes then turn it out onto a rack and let it cool. Sorry, you need to let it cool down to just barely warm before you cut it. Don’t worry it’ll be worth the wait.

    Missy,
    Love your Neighborhood RR and that banana bread looks delicious. I just might have to try your recipe when the weather cools down enough to use the oven again.
