Every now and then I actually bake a cake for Mr. M and I. My latest cake was to use up some really ripe bananas. After I made the cake I remembered my seventh grade home economics class. That was waaayyy back when only girls could enroll in home economics, and boys had to take “shop”. Never could one take the other. Anyway that was then and I did learn a few recipes from that class.

Thank you Hispaniola for saving us! Erika died down before she ever got to Florida. This is the first time since moving here we have put our storm shutters down and they are already back up.

The shutters are up and I am going to celebrate!
Tonight is homemade pizza night! Read the rest of this entry »
