8 + 5 = 13 (8/5/2013)
Good 54º already smokey morning. UGH.
You can see the smoke making the mountain back of me hazy. (1:30pm yesterday) Still not letting Dude do his morning run.
WHY DOESN'T THE NATIONAL NEWS EVEN MENTION THE FIRES IN OREGON....THEY ARE THE #1 PRIORITY IN THE COUNTRY, AS FIRES GO. Pathetic!
And this morning looking east before the sun makes it's appearance... smokey.
Hi Mom, whatcha doin'??
Yesterday I noticed I had three bananas that were getting over ripe. I don't like to eat them that way. Sat down at my computer and an email popped up from a blog I follow on Crockpot Banana Bread.....using 3 over ripe bananas!!! Fate.
So I made the banana bread! Here is her recipe... I have two crockpots, a 3 quart and a 6 quart... I used the 3 quart. I didn't have any dark corn syrup, so I used molasses. I sprayed the crockpot with cooking spray instead of "greasing and flouring" it. And I added about a cup of chopped pecans!
I found this recipe at www.smashedpeasandcarrots.blogspot.com
Crockpot Banana Bread
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup butter or margarine
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
2 tbsp dark corn syrup
3 ripe bananas, well mashed
Grease and flour a 4 1/2 quart crockpot. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a small bowl, set aside. Cream butter with an electric mixer until fluffy. Slowly add sugar, eggs, corn syrup, and mashed bananas. Beat until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture.
Pour into crockpot, cover and cook on high for 1 1/4 to 1/2 hours or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cool, then invert bread onto serving plate.
OMG it's soooooooooooo good!!!!
I ate this piece before dinner..... dessert before dinner! Mmmm.... so had a small bowl of leftovers for the meal. LOL

National Waffle Day
Remember, cook the cookie dough in the waffle iron and make waffle cookies! Or that cheese sandwich, instead of grilling it, cook it in the waffle iron for a cheese-sami waffle!
