You Landed On My Mind

Baking day here today
You might see a theme appearing
Banana, sultana and apricot loaf
Banana Cake (because Dave asked for one)
and 4 batches of banana muffins (4 batches because I misread the recipe, went to double the what I thought was 1/2 cup sugar only to reread the recipe to find it was 1/4… too late had mixed the sugar into the butter so made 4 batches… never mind they are all now in the freezer for school lunch boxes)
Yes we had loads of bananas
With the price rise, due to the floods in Queensland, people just aren’t buying bananas and definitely not the big ones
Mum was given a heap that were ‘thrown out’ stock from a supermarket, she rang me and I went and she gave us about 40, hence the baking theme for today, all of which got the thumbs up when my taste testers got home from school

Between the baking I scrapped this page


added this flower to the Sassafras Lass entwined bloom


love me paint, stitching and washi tape


cut up a free postcard that I found while in Brisbane


and added it to the back of my journaling


oh and the banana cake I iced with cream cheese icing, first time I have made that and am now inspired to make something else just so I can make some more icing… maybe a carrot cake….

Pin It Now!
