One of the things that The Hubs and I have agreed to do once we make the big move to Georgia and settle down is to start adding salads to our meals. Those of you who follow me on Instagram, know already that I’m a big salad lover and would eat them for every meal if I could figure out the logistics. In fact, I briefly thought about starting a salad delivery service. So there’s an idea, someone run with it. Just give me a shout out and discounted salads.
My kids love bananas. In fact, they love them so much that bananas rarely last long enough for me to make banana bread. So on those rare occasions when the bananas do start to get overly ripe, I jump at the chance to put some bread in the oven. Only this time I didn’t have any baking soda or baking powder… What to do? What to do? How about use what you have on hand?
So, here you go, Banana Bread using self~rising flour…
What Ya Need
6 Very Ripe Bananas, mashed
3 cups Self~Rising Flour
1 Stick of Butter
2 tsp Vanilla
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Cranberry Trail Mix
What Ya Do
Preheat oven to 325º
Cream together butter, eggs and sugar until smooth.
Have you ever wanted to eat something so badly that you thought about it all day long? That’s how I was the other night. I wanted Shrimp and Grits with Fried Chicken. Desperately. So I quickly drove home and, guess what? No grits anywhere in the house. So I started thinking and thinking and thinking and when I finally accepted the fact that I wasn’t going to get in my car and drive back in to town just for some grits, I decided to make chowder. Best decision ever. Here’s the recipe, I hope you agree. What Ya Need
1/2 lb Shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 cans Corn, drained
6 strips Bacon, crumbled
4 cups Red Potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup Onion, chopped
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
3 cups Chicken Broth
4 cups Milk
1 tbs Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper
What Ya Do
Place potatoes, corn and onions in a large pot with the chicken broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender.
While potatoes simmer, combine butter, milk and flour in a saucepan over medium~low heat and cook until smooth and thick. Stir constantly.
Pour milk mixture into the cooked vegetables, add the bacon and shrimp. Cook until the shrimp is no longer opaque.
Remove from heat. Add lemon juice. Salt and pepper to taste.
