I had mentioned having some overripe bananas the other day and received some wonderful comments with advice about what to do if I couldn't bake banana nut bread before they turn bad. Well, we did eventually work up to making banana nut bread that day and you can see the results in the photo above.
What? You were expecting food porn? Sorry, I'm not very good with that. I'll admit it isn't very pretty to look at, however I can assure you that it is quite delicious. I give half to DH to take to work because we can't possibly eat it all ourselves. Well, we could, but that wouldn't be good.
Were you expecting rectangular loaves? I have a quirk. I like to bake in my Bundt pan. I think this is one of the few items sold in this country that is also made here too. If you turn over the pan it says MPLS, MN USA on it. What a surprise. Not "made in (insert your favorite non-US country here)". Anyhow I suppose loaves would be easier since I send DH to work with half of it. Definitely easier to wrap up rectangular loaves.
I saw this Berry Cobbler recipe on Michele's blog that looks really yummy.
On the knitting front...
I mentioned thinking about a few patterns the other day. Well, I've finally made some forward progress. I finally got my hands on a copy of the February Lady Sweater. I know, I know, it doesn't sound like much until I tell you that I live in the Dark Ages and do not own a printer. Gasp! I know! So getting a printed copy of this pattern is really half the battle for me.
I've already dug out some yarn to play with, Elann Superwash Bamboo, and 5 mm needles. Now the pattern says gauge is 18 stitches per 4 inches in garter stitch. I wonder if I should knit a garter swatch. I've never been good with gauge. I think that's why I like freeform knits like scarves and dishcloths. Lack of gauge is definitely one of the things that make me a bad knitter. I'm lazy!!! I admit it. I think I'll just dive in and cast on for 83 stitches and see what happens.
I'm still working on typing up the row-by-row instructions for my Hera Scarf (chart already available from here, scroll down). I just haven't been able to focus on this. Until then, you can see another photo of it. :-)
