Bad Banana Put To Good Use

A wet wet Saturday.
The perfect kind of day to relax
after a busy and long week.


I bought new bananas today
and as someone suggested yesterday
took that bad banana and made
banana chocolate chips muffins!

(shhh...don't tell the boys...they are made with bran and flax...)



And of course
finding a comfy corner of the couch
to lay on
bird watch
and snooze
is always a good idea
for a cold and rainy day.




More rain with predictions of snow for Sunday.

Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

Hmmm... what should I bake tomorrow...

I love everything with banana. Banana chocolate chips muffins sounds yummy! We had heavy rain during the week but it is clear so far this weekend.
And we are definitely not going to have snow...I hope you stay warm!

Brian said...

You should bake Banjo some nip treat crunchies!

Christine said...

everything tastes good with enough chocolate or icecream...even a rainy day seems brighter with a good helping of that, I would send some sun your way, but I'm a little greedy today :)

Sandra said...

so you mashed up your PROP and cooked it. great idea. beautiful blue eyes watching me from your post

TexWisGirl said...

Becca said...

Sounds like the perfect day to me! You don't want to be here in Vegas today...90's and our air conditioner broke last night...I'm grateful it's already been repaired..$$ later though.

Pam said...

Kerri said...

Yum on the muffins!
Hope the sun comes out and the weather warms up for you!!

Cooking and baking is a comforting thing to do on a rainy day, isn't it? I love to make 'comfort food' on days like that, macaroni and cheese always comes to mind or fresh baked cookies with a nice cup of tea...

Sounds like good use was made of that banana. You might want to remind the snow that it is definitely springtime now!

Laurie said...

I am in love in love in love with your way of surprising magical through the lens of your camera. And your words are just as magical. I am your hugeeeeeee fan, hugeeeeeeee. I love your cat. Might I suggest to make a Tiramisu? I love it and my version of it turned out pretty sad, so I'd love to see it done proper :)>

Rain I can handle. Snow--not so much. I love to make banana bread out of those brown bananas. Or I toss them in the freezer to use them another day.

Hope it didn't snow by you.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I hope you are getting rain today, not snow. (crossing everything for you)

At my house banana eating has increased dramatically. For a while I would have three of four bad bananas left at the end of the week (and I'd make banana bread) and now I'm having to buy them more than once a week.

Carole said...

oh dear snow ??? !!!! Banana tip :-you can freeze banana's & take them out of the freezer & use them in milkshakes :)

Berts Blog said...

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

A brand new week. My how time is flying these days. Hope your weather has cleared. Sounds like you made the best of rainy days. Mmmmm -- wish I could have some of those muffins for breakfast tomorrow. :) Banjo is so handsome! Have a good week! Tammy

The Smiths said...

Hope you have some good weather soon!

Enjoy your muffins!

Kay :)

Linda R said...

Sounds yummy.. You know someone told me if add flax seeds to your recipes it would help with the hot flashes. So now that I have gone through a whole big bag of flax it hasn't helped at all. I am thinking I need something a little stronger than that. Hee Hee..

Your photos look great my friend. especially the one of Banjo!

Hugs~

Nancy said...

Snow? That's just wrong.

Love the photo of Banjo. :)

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

Sounded perfect until you said "snow." What? Poor Banjo has to be going stir crazy.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,

Love Banjo´s pensive ´blue´ eyes. Love to you and have a happy week!

Madge Bloom said...

Snow???? Wow, a bit late in the season for that... but wouldn't it be pretty to catch some flakes with a tulip bloom??

Hot Rocks said...

I love banana choc chip muffins! I make mine with oatmeal and flax and my guys love them too.
As for the weather, we have had snow, hot sunny 26C, and now looks like Mr. Snow is coming back for another visit on Thursday! BLAH!
