Good evening ladies..
How is your week going?
Terry has been away all week and I came down with a cold...
I had planned on doing a lot of chores but I did not accomplish hardly a thing...
Oh well, this too shall pass..
Anyway.. Terry is coming home tonight so I thought perhaps I should make something a bit special for him..
He gets tired of restaurant food when he is away...
When I went downstairs to make the fire I thought I would find an old Louis L'Amour book to read ..
I know.. I know.. But sometimes I like to read one of his books..
Very historical.. grin..
Instead I found this..
Terry's mother's recipe box..
She was a wonderful cook and taught me so much..
I was blessed to receive her recipe collection and all the instructions she gave me over the years..
Anyway... Terry had bought a big bag of bananas over the weekend and I thought I had better use them up..
Sometimes I just put them whole in the freezer and bake with them later..
A chocolate banana cake..
With chocolate chips...hmm...
Looks pretty good, eh?
I thought I would wait and get his opinion before I posted the recipe for you.. I think he will like it.. smile..
And then I found this treasure...
CUCUMBER SALAD DRESSING..
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp. juice from dill pickles.. (I used dill relish)
1 slice onion
1/2 of a cucumber.. peeled and seeded
I added kosher salt and freshly grated black pepper
and a pinch of red pepper flakes..
Put everything in a blender and blend well..
I put it in a mason jar and it will keep in the fridge for a week or two...
It is a delicious dressing:-)
We both are salad lovers and I make almost all of our salad dressings..
This one is a keeper..
Are any of you girls growing any sprouts?
I have lentil sprouts growing and a mix, too..
I want to make a sprouted grain bread...
Oh and I made a NO KNEAD LOAF OF BREAD,,,
Just click on for the recipe...
Terry likes it better when I make just one loaf and leave out the rosemary and salt..
We are trying not to eat much bread but he has been away all week... grin..
Oh and girls don't forget about the SWEET HEART GIVE AWAY ..
