Look what my neighbor and friend brought me a few weeks ago, wow!
A 40 pound box of ripe bananas, a half case of tomatoes and a little bread for the freezer. She wasn't sure what to do with all the bananas and tomatoes but thought I might. Well... that 40 pound box of bananas made twenty five loaves of banana and chocolate banana bread. I wasn't sure it was such a blessing several days later when I was still baking banana bread, but it was.
I learned how to make banana bread in pint mason jars thanks to Pinterest and had a dozen of those to share. I think the funnest people to share these with was the mail carrier and UPS driver! They always take great care of us and always have a little treat for Maxine.
Mmmm, the last three loaves of chocolate banana bread, yea!
At church Sunday I was asked if I'd like to help with the Mother's Day brunch this Saturday, they were in need of some breads like - you guessed it! No problem we're ready :)
My friend and her family also enjoyed lots of banana bread, the chocolate was their favorite.
Our kids were happy to make the deliveries across the street on a regular basis.
And then there were the tomatoes. I was thinking tomato sauce but they became tomato paste which was fine with me. There are several jars of homemade tomato paste in the freezer since I haven't learned how to can anything yet.
I've missed a few days blogging here and there lately so I thought I'd share what I've been doing, I'm still in the kitchen - just enjoying some other creative interests!
