Sitting in the kitchen watching the bananas ripen and all I kept
thinking was banana bread. It's my go to recipe when the kids haven't
eaten them all. I wanted to try something new. I thought about frying
them with a honey glaze, which would have been just as good as the next
I called a kiddo in for help since I was also making
dinner when this thought occurred. Banana Empanada, nope never made it
before. The look on the kiddo's face when the dough formed into a ball
in the food processor was priceless. All he could keep saying was
I was rolling out the dough & kept being
asked how much of this? how much of this? I should've helped more since
the end result was for the kiddo not to measure, but to just dump brown
sugar into a bowl along with the bananas and he mixed until it was soup.
We finished making them anyway and laughed so hard when I finally
blurted out "I will never make these again", only to take it back after
eating one. Next time I will not be asking for assistance so I can find
out how wonderful they should be. It was an experience to say the least.
I found a pattern for Queen Anne's
Lace. I haven't decided if it will be a bookmark, a bracelet, a little
something extra for a future bag, or a new headband. Whatever it turns
out to be will look great though!
Thank you Mother Nature for all the snow! I'm ready for it all to thaw out so we can go play in the dirt!
I've shared a lot of snow days, movie marathons, and cooking adventures with my guys in the last month, but I'm ready to be back in the craft room. My little heater just can't keep up when it's -2 outside, so I'm teaching myself new things instead.
After years of crocheting I've managed to teach myself how to read most patterns and have now learned tatting. I started off with an intermediate pattern and I'm still searching for a harder pattern. So if you happen to know of one, send me a link! Just a few of my latest creations..
