My day has consisted of the above....loads of laundry, and loafs of banana bread---gotta go make one more batch---but it's yum.
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
5 T. butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
2 egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Beat butter in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add in sugars; beat well. Add egg, egg whites and vanilla; beat until blended. Add mashed banana, and beat on high speed 30 seconds.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder in medium bowl. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with cream, ending with flour mixture. Add mini chocolate chips to batter and mix well.
Pour batter into greased loaf pan. Sprinkle top lightly with sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
The next two cards use new paper and cardstock stickers from Melissa Frances and the Hush A' Bye collection, along with stamps, buttons, trim, and glitter chipboard.
And, just for fun---a layout---I know, I know...I don't DO layouts, haha. But, this is for CreativeXpress and I was forced into it....but the pictures are cute anyway, huh?
And, to share a favorite blog or two tonight---I'd love for you to enjoy these as much as I do:
I LOVE THIS ONE---The Antique Cafe. I get lost here--Sherri's work is amazing and mesmerizing---be sure to check out her store as well here at The Antique Paperie---some of her beautiful tags are finding their way to my home soon--I can't wait.
And one more for you then I'll be off...Bella Cafe makes me weepy--I feel like I'm on an exotic vacation every time I visit--or maybe like I just had a looong bubble bath--or maybe just even the most beautiful dream---it's so beautiful!
One more little tidbit---I just downloaded Shabby Miss Jenn's Weedy Freebie---so cute and I just brought home a new color cartridge, so tonight I have a date with digi, haha. Anyway---check 'er out, huh?
Night...and just because I think it's funny, I have been working on this post for approximately4 hours and 24 minutes, haha---that's life with a 4 year old.
