But honestly, I love being able to be a stay at home mom and I love being here when my kids get home from school and I can fix them some warming hot chocolate these days and listen to the tales they have from school. It is a blessing!
I was even able to start clearing out and cleaning kitchen cupboards so I feel I've made a fair start to the year and hope it lasts!!!
Of course there was time to sit for a while with needle in hand and I got this sweet little hanging tuck pillow stitched up~
I also forgot to show you the other finish I managed for Valentines Day and these ans some others are now listed on my Etsy.
Here is a quick and tasty recipe I tried today as it uses bananas that are over ripe. The pancakes are pretty dense due to the banana and are best enjoyed straight off the griddle with the glaze, especially if you have a sweet tooth like me!
2 cups of AP flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 to 2 cups of milk
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 large bananas
2 tablespoons melted butter
Blend dry ingredients together in large bowl
Gradually add milk and melted butter and vanilla extract
Mixture should be of a dropping consistency
Heat a pan with a little oil in it and drop a couple of tablespoons of batter in for each pancake
After 2-3 minutes flip and cook for another couple minutes and lift out.
For the glaze mix a half cup of maple syrup and 3/4 cup powdered sugar and a teaspoon vanilla extract. Drizzle over your pancake stack and add a knob of butter. Enjoy!
I just wanted to thank you all for following and welcome new friends to my blog!
Best wishes and enjoy your weekend!
