Morning Lj...


So in an effort to save jaggedpill from any fear... I've decided that this morning face needs to be hidden... maybe after a shower I won't look so scary.

wearing
~ pure comfort clothes...
~ sweats and a sweat shirt
planning
~ shower, dress and ...
~ make banana bread (want some?)
~ write a bb2 update... (fun show last night)
~ mix and gook with fireplace tile grout... (let the mess begin!!!)
wishing
~ for continued good news from roaring_woman about her darling Olivia.
~ a little Jimmy action for my favorite Power Puff Girl (Blossom) in Hollywood....
~ and to hear more from my pal lesslyn!!!
note: edited to correct my idiot use of the name Timothy instead of Jimmy in previous line! Douh!!!
oh and the big wish for today?
~ that potty training with Ed goes better than yesterday... :D It's amazing how you can sit this guy on the potty every 15 minutes and still totally miss the moment he decides to pee everywhere... but I did get him to fart on the potty... hahaha... (his words)

K, later Lj... I'll be back with banana bread...

hehe...

I almost feel evil ...
George (5) is watching Ed (3) ... while I have a shower... "George? If you convince Ed to have a pee in the potty while I'm in the shower... we all go to McDonalds for lunch."

Last thing I hear as I head upstairs is Geo work'en him... haha... a good recruit.

BB Update

BB2 Update: Will the real puppet master please stand up!

"Hullo, my name is Krista and I'm a puppet master. My plan is, in fact, very simple. I will ensure that someone gets booted off the show... that someone else voluntarily exits (coming soon), and that anyone I think actually posses a clear and present danger will be voted out of the house."

Hiya lj...

My cam is on and I'm just pounding away a few Lj comments and other things that need doing before I crash... I am totally beat tonight... feel like my eyes weight twenty pounds a piece.

Here is the recipe for the banana bread I made today... it's fricking fantastic stuff... no fooling.

Note: You need to have over ripe bananas. Next time the bananas get too ripe... toss three of them in the freezer. They turn to black, frosty sticks of ugly but tough... they will ultimately be perfect for banana bread. Also, you really want to have a "loaf" pan or two (this recipe makes two loaf pans). If you make muffins or "small cake pan" batches... you end up with too much edge bits and not enough yummy middle bits.

Note also that fresh blueberries are great freezing fruits. Get a couple of quarts of little bitty fresh blueberries sometime and put a few baggies in the freezer with a cup of berries in each. Great for baking.

So, the bread!

Big Bowl!!!
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup veg oil
(beat sugar and oil together - mixing by hand is fine)
2 eggs - beat 'em up good in a small bowl.
3 ripe bananas (if their frozen... nuke 'em till their soft) (smush 'em up and add 'em to the eggs)
2 cups of all purpose flour. Sift it if it's lumpy.
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of baking powder
Add all this powder to the big bowl.
1/4 cup of orange juice (pour it in the big bowl)
1 cup of blueberries (if frozen, run 'em under water until the get the chill off)

Pour the egg/banana goop into the big bowl and mix this all up well... then add the blueberries and stir.

Divide evenly between two small loaf pans.

Bake at 350 for 60 minutes... It's perfectly cooked with you think the very edges are looking too dark! :D

Note: Banana bread is always best the next day...

peace yo.
