Happy Monday to everyone. It's our second day back to school while most of you are just starting your week.
Today started out with clouds. Cleared up mid-day. And now it is very windy out there ... and unfortunately, dusty. This wallhanging is on my kitchen door. Bought it during a layover in Amsterdam.
A collector's plate hangs in the hallway. We have a friend who lives in Amsterdam and during a 9-hour layover coming back from the States one summer, he met me and the kids and took us for a boat ride along the canal.
Amsterdam is often cold and drizzly and it certainly was this day. These are all sites we saw during the boat ride.
Unfortunately, this is what Zack did the whole time!
No matter where we went -- in the car, on the boat, to a restaurant to eat -- he would wake up only long enough to get to the next place and then he would promptly fall asleep again. Poor guy! I think he was about 5 at the time. Jet lag really does a number on us when we come back this way.
I often make Banana Muffins as we eat a lot of bananas around here and some always get a little ripe before we can get to them. I use the same honey wheat muffin recipe I posted about before and add bananas and some extras to make them moist and delicious.
Mash 1-1/2 ripe bananas
Stir in 1 egg, 1/4 cup canola oil, 1/2 honey and 1/2 cup of milk; mix together.
Add 1-1/2 cups of wheat flour; 2 tsps baking powder; 1/4 tsp salt; a pinch of cinnamon; TBS of oatmeal and chopped pecans or walnuts. Blend
Grease your muffin tins, fill and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until done.
Great for breakfast or a snack!
The wind is really whipping up out there now, carrying dusty with it. Yuck! Weather folks say that the next few days will be cold. Hope you have a fantastic evening and a terrific Tuesday. Peace & blessings, Tammy
