Nothing like homemade bread.......

Just made the best Banana Bread ever! It's an older recipe from my mom's cookbook that I got a copy of. I call it my magic book, lol. It's a super easy recipe:

Banana Bread (vegetarian)
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. mashed ripe bananas (3-4 medium)
1/3 c. water
1 2/3 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 c. chopped nuts

Mix and bake in 350 degree oven for 1 to 1 1/4 hours in a bread pan with only the bottom greased.

This is the original recipe, and I'm not sure where she got it from. Mix ingredients in the order listed. When I made it, I omitted the nuts (I just prefer it that way) and I greased all sides of the pan....I figured it couldn't hurt. You could probably substitute the butter for applesauce or imitation margarine and then use egg substitute for a vegan recipe.

I also recently made some earrings out of parts that I dug out of an old printer.


The first pair has springs, not sure from where at in the printer, but the second one has rubber covers that were by the ink but have no ink on them. I have more parts that I pulled out like gears and such, which I will use later, but I don't have enough jump rings to make things with them yet....although....I could just poke a hole in them.....hmmm....

On a side note, bamboo still is not doing well except for the ones in the turtle tank and a little vase filled with water. It has a reputation of growing out of it's sadly not living up to.
