Christmas is Forever

I stayed up way too late last night stitching Lizzie Kate's "Christmas is Forever." I'm loving this one! I love the colors - they are so bright and pretty!

Christmas is Forever

I had some leftover bananas so I thought I would make some banana muffins today. I got the recipe from my mom and they are so good!

My Mom's Banana Muffins

Here's the recipe...

Preheat oven to 425, spray muffin pan with cooking spray.

Wet Ingredients
3 ripe bananas mashed
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 - 1 tsp vanilla (optional)

Dry Ingredients
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

mix wet ingredients in one bowl and dry in another. Make a well in dry ingredients, dump wet into the well. Mix well. Bake for 15 min - until top is firm. I sprinkled some walnuts on top of a few of them for me (my kids don't like nuts).

Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. We are staying home having a very small dinner. Actually I haven't even gone shopping yet (that's pretty sad). Write later!
