A full day~

 Not in this order but I thought I would put the food first,  adapted a recipe for banana bread,  No flour, no sugar, I used parchment paper instead of the cooking spray the called for.

Paleo Banana Bread,
2 cups almond flour
1 tbsp, Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 cup cashew butter (didn't call for this but I adapted it in)
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup fruit jam,(made with no sugar, all natural juices)( it called for 1/4 Agave Syrup)
2 ripe bananas mashed
(it called for 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste didn't add it)

preheat oven 350, bake 45 minutes , Mix all butters, eggs, jams and banana together first then add the flour, cinnamon and baking soda.

 Our Carl, mixed four legged friend isn't so have bones, and the milk bones and raw hide etc because of his kidneys but he can have sweet on 250 degrees and for 3 hours I'm turning my oven into a dehydrator and make sweet potato chews for him...he loves them...half way through I turn them over.

 This is the husband and my Christmas present to the us and the family.  Randy's uncle works for Speed Queen...small deal and but so very grateful we were able to get them both so quickly.   A week with out a wash machine and dry....for some it was OK and we made a trip to the Laundry mat but for others...there was some twitching going on as of how is this going to happen, how are we going to wash our clothes?   lol...small panic...but all worked out.

As you notice's there are plan "Jane's and that's what I like.  Simple and ready to do a few loads a day for the group we have around here.  As you also notice it says, "Heavy Duty"   Man and Holy Moly the construction suits that when through the other ones and the jeans...Lots of two legger's here. Well I won't go into the laundry woe's....we are happen and they are wonderful.


The Beginning of Winter, journal.  Seems...I forgot that I had my one page from my blog up that showed some journals I had for sale...well not really as they sold and I hide the blog page/tab but it was on my website...felt so bad when the person purchased it and it was sold.  So I offered to create an New one for her... and here it is...will head out on Monday.

It's not a lot of drama but it is Life and all her messy bits that make it grand isn't it.  My days fly by and are so full of many things with the holiday and now I'll start to head out and do some Holiday shopping as I've got to get some package sent out or they won't get there in time.

I so have an obligation to gallery sit at Water Street Studio's for a bit today and then I figure I'll head home with a little shopping.


  1. Can I have some of Carl's sweet potato chews? Hahah, they look delicious, and so does the banana bread!
