While driving to a friend's house this Sat. we saw these for FREE!
I guess they were tired of canning and freezing, LOL! So I have some work ahead of me. :-)
I also had in my plans to make the girls new chore charts. Last week I saw these at Target.
They were only a dollar! Plus they come with the pen and removable stickers. I figured I couldn't beat that!
They always have been very helpful. Both like to organize like I do. :-)
For Jerry's work today, I decided to try a new recipe. I found this in my Gooseberry Patch favorite family recipe's book.
Banana Chocolate Chip Bread
3/4 cup butter softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 c. all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 bananas mashed
10 oz. jar maraschino cherries, 1/4 juice reserved
6 oz package chocolate chips
Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Combine flour and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in mashed bananas, cherries, reserved cherry juice and chocolate chips. Pour into greased 9" x 5 " loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Makes 2 loaves.
It is soooo good! Especially warm. :-)
Kathleen mashing the bananas!
Mixing it all together!
Enjoying a warm piece with a cold glass of milk....mmmmm
Fancy dishes optional ;-)
We had to run out this morning and do some errands. One of these was buying some supplies for Hayley.
My "baby" is beginning Jr. Scouts tonight. She graduated from being a Brownie last year. I still remember when she first started as a Daisy Scout. ahhhh, the time is flying by. It's a parent meeting tonight, but there will be activities provided for the girls. So I'll be headed out with my planner! :-)
When I came home I was happy to see my new Birds and Bloom magazine. So many stunning pictures and great ideas! I really enjoy looking through it.
So Kathleen and I did learning, and then I let her have some fun. We even incorporated learning into the fun.
We started by practicing letters....
Then just had fun!
She even made a picture of her and I. :-)
We had a great day. Hope you all are having a great day too!
