Long Week

Jeremy was gone this week. He left with his dad on Tuesday to move his sister Katie home from CA. They got to Grandma's house where Katie is going to be living on Friday night. It is good to have him home!

It was a pretty uneventful week. Pretty boring. The only major thing that I did was on Wednesday when my mom, Esther and Noah came over and we reorganized my kitchen. I got rid of a lot of things and put them in the pile for the garage sale. It feels good to actually be able to find the things that I need quickly! This is the only picture I took of my cupboards. It is of my Fiesta plates which we actually didn't even organize because I wanted to keep them all. I just love all of the colors.

I snapped this picture of Noah as he walked in the door when he still had his cute hat on.

On Thursday night I baked some banana muffins from some bananas that were almost too brown to use. The turned out to be really good! Here is the recipe I used:

Banana Muffins

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat muffin pans with non-stick spray, or use paper liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
Combine bananas, sugar, egg, and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin pans.
Bake in preheated oven. Bake mini muffins for 10 to 15 minutes, and large muffins for 25 to 30 minutes. Muffins will spring back when lightly tapped.

I also added 1 tsp of vanilla, 1 tsp of cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg.

I also got this fun picture of Noah and my mom. We were talking about taking pictures and Noah grabbed my camera and said (or "indicated") that he wanted to have his picture taken with grandma. He has lots of words, but sometimes you have to really know what he is talking about to get the whole picture. This was the best picture out of the batch. He moves so fast that most of the pictures that I took were blurry.

That's about all I have for now. We had a good weekend. I'm fighting a cold. Back to work tomorrow. I never know how to sign off on my blog posts, so I'll just say goodnight.

    What a cute picture of Noah and Me. It was fun cleaning out the cupboards and getting me in the mood to do my own cleaning at home.

  2. Noah's pictures turned out great. I tried to take some of him on Thursday morning, but Nothing really turned out. He only sits for a second and then he wants to come see what it looks like.

    I tried to download them onto my computer, but they went into never never land. I can't find them anywhere on the computer.
