Those forced Hyacinths bring weeks of pleasure~ If you can..stock up next fall on some bulbs..refrigerate and in Jan..place some over bulb vases..You won't regret them at all~
Just watching their process of blooming is an exquisite small sensory pleasure~♥
The weekend we babysat 3 of the Alphabet Boys..I brought along a new Banana Bread recipe I made..we all have so many..I know ...I know..:)
But one of the ones I Pinned had a cinnamon swirl~
Oli can be a bit particular in his tastes.. he is a young man that knows what he likes and what he doesn't like..:)
He had a piece..then another and told me Nanan I ate two pieces of your beenanan pie:)
That is SOMETHING..and we giggled about the pie..and said :" it's bread Oli.."
So he proceeded to eat most the bread the whole weekend..and when his parents came home..I said to them..:"and Oli really liked my beenanan pie"..quickly Oli corrected me with the cutest smile saying.:".beenanan bread nanan":)♥
I never thought I would be talking like this..but I am:) Everything he says..is cuter than the next ..and well nothing in the entertainment world entertains me as much as he does.It's that sweet age.. 3-4..
So here is the wonderful recipe..So Easy too.
The first time I made it I made a large one and two minis to bring to Donella..even an 80 something grande dame enjoyed it very much:)I love how she always has her pearls and lipstick..
