Yes, Fall must be on the way, as I notice I want to cook more, clean more, and definitely want to start crocheting more. I don't do as much of any of those in the summer months, cause it is is just too darn hot! But yes, this morning I decided to make a berry pie, spaghetti and meatballs, and strawberry banana muffins. The muffins just came out of the oven, mmmmmmm!, and the pie just went in. Now I am pooped for awhile (I don't have a lot of stamina anymore), so I will write a little blog.
Anyway, I will also have some iced tea and a muffin in a few minutes. In the meantime, I will look up some more recipes, do some wash, and start putting together my grandaughter's afghan, finally! I am not even sure I have enough squares for it yet, so I will lay it out, and see where I am at, since I haven't touched it in months.
So, a very exciting thing happened to me on my visit to Massachusetts in August to see my daughter. It was my birthday in August, while I was there, and she had planned a surprise birthday party for me! Now, you may not believe it, but I don't remember ever having a birthday party in my life, so this was a very big thing to me! And I was surprised!! I don't know how she got it done, but she did. She had a lot of help from many of my friends, and family. It was a lovely Sunday afternoon, and I thought we were just going for a cookout at a very good friend's home. I know it was one of the best days of my life, as I love getting together with people, and I have so little time when I am there. You know how it is, you want to see everyone, but there just isn't enough time. But on this day, so many people that I love were there. About 30, I guess. Here are a couple of photos.
Oh, what a day! My 70th birthday, celebrated well! It was a day I will remember fondly, forever.
was fun, telling
all about my special day. But back to today. These are the strawberry banana muffins I made this morning. And here is my recipe. Simple.
you can read that, as I am too lazy to write it out. Thanks for understanding. xxoo
I used two ripe bananas, small, this morning, as that is what I had. I just added a little more cream, and bis quick. But I have made them many times, and they are soft, and delicious. Actually, also, I added about a half teaspoon strawberry preserves right onto the top, and then baked. Made it all the more better!!!
And here is a look at my kitties today. They are getting big, especially Bo, the black one. I don't what it is, but he has grown twice as fast as Johnny. I enjoy them so much, even tho they are mischievous sometimes.
Well, I had better get back to work, as I still have a few things to do before I have to start my spaghetti and meatballs.
See you ............ Later...........JO
