And now, for something completely different.
Lynn told me I needed to be all happiness and light today...
and being the middle child, I do what I am told.
How about that baby? Isn't that a spectacular image! I love it and it makes me very happy :o)
Urchin rock is a group of photographers out of England.
They have found their unique and wonderful niche.
Go visit and then come back to see my muffins.
I nabbed this recipe off of April's website.
Salt of the Spirit
"Best Banana Muffins" (aka Recipe 3)
3 lg. bananas
3/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. melted butter
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4-1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
Mash bananas; add sugar and slightly beaten egg, then melted butter. Add soda, baking powder, salt and flour. Mix and spoon into greased muffin cups (it does not rise very much) and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Yields 1 dozen (or so -- mine also made 7 mini-muffins).
These are even good if you forget the vanilla.
The plate is Matthew's baby plate, isn't it pretty.
And I will confess that I Tivoed The Finale of The Amazing Race and watched THAT after the Packers.
AND Tivoed Northanger Abbey and watched that too.
My television watching capabilities are off the charts!
(Don't tell anyone.)
The Amazing Race cheered me up considerably after the Packer game.
Patrick and I were delighted with the winning team.
I cried for joy.
He looked at me, bewildered.
Do you want to know who won? Did you watch?
Let's talk about it in the comments in case you don't want to know yet.
(I can't imagine that many of you have the stamina that my husband and I have for back to back hours of viewing.)
And then I stayed up until midnight watching Northanger Abbey.
I liked it so well.
So much better than I thought I would.

Encourage one another,
p.s. Do you bake bread with yeast?
If so, send me the recipe.
It must be tried and true.
