How are you all? We have had another warm and lovely day here today.. My clothes blew out beautifully.. Rain in the forecast for tonight, though.. Much better than snow in my humble opinion.. I heard on the radio the other day that Canadians are known for their love of weather talk.. They begin and end their conversations with weather comments..
So please excuse me as I am a Canadian... grin..
I did attack my kitchen as I mentioned in my last posting but did not get it finished.. (big surprise) smile.. Actually, we had company.. A good excuse, right? Today we had to go to the city for some errands that Terry had to do and he wanted me to go with him..Our dryer broke and he had to get the part.. Thank you, Lord it is all fixed.. Do you know dear ladies that in 41 3/4 years of marriage we have only had 2 dryers... The first one lasted 24 years and this one is on it's 16th and still going.. So thankful for a handy husband.. smile.. With the Winter coming I really enjoy having a dryer...
I still have the pantry to do and the inside of the cupboards..
I did get the counters, the outside of the cupboards, the stove and oven finished and I cleaned out the fridge..
When I did that I came across a couple of things that needed used up or I would have to throw it...
Instead, I turned on the oven and made a couple of goodies..
There was some leftover pumpkin puree and I made some pumpkin chocolate chip breads to freeze for Christmas..
I will show you them later with the neat packaging idea that I found on pinterest...
And I had bananas...
This delicious thing came out of the oven...
Well... minus the icing... grin..
That came later when it cooled..
I must say that this is one of the best cakes that I have eaten in ages... (to be honest.. I have not had cake for ages.. grin)
I thought I would share this recipe.. I did not get it off the Internet but from an old cookbook that I have had for years..
1/2 cup of veg. oil.. I used canola
1 3/4 cups of white sugar
1 cup of sour cream
2 1/2 cups of cake flour..I used all purpose minus 2 T.
2 large well ripened bananas.. mine were very ripe
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir together the wet ingredients except the sour cream..
Place dry ingredients in a separate bowl and blend with your whisk.
Fold flour mixture into the wet ingredients alternately with the sour cream..Beginning and ending with dry ingredients..
Pour into a 10 inch well greased bundt or tube pan..
Bake at 325 degrees for 50minutes or until done.
Cool in pan for a few minutes and then place on rack..
I used a butter cream icing and put it on after it cooled down..
This is a large cake and very moist..
Thank you my friends for dropping by..
You guys are great.. Thank you, too for all the wonderful comments on the last posting about our bathroom redo...
That was great..
For now I think I will make a cup of tea and have a piece of this cake..
There is not much left.. I cut it in two and took it to our youngest..
He loves a treat and only has his Mama to bake for him.. smile..
Terry and I sure don't need it..
I found a wonderful place in town to get cheap books..
Today I found a great magazine, a book about a Halifax, Nova
Scotia family in the early 1900s and another historical one..
Also, I am studying the book of Corinthians..
Such wonderful teachings by Paul to the early church..
Do you know that I have been reading the Bible for over 50 years and yet I will read a verse and go back and think that I have not heard that before.. Imagine.. His Word is so filled with truths..
Love to you all..
