Sisters Weekend!

I've never had sisters, although I have very close friends that I would call sisters, but now that I am married I have gained two!

Daisy (left) Me and Blossom(right) :::nicknames I am giving them in my blog.
Daisy and I had a sleepover last night. We had homemade pizza which I talked about the other day and popcorn while we watch Prince of Persia.
Today the three of us went out to eat at the Olive Garden where we all had the unlimited soup,salad and breadsticks. I loved the soup! It was Chicken Gnocci. mmm yummm.
We went shopping afterwards and I bought some much needed shoes! I have been wearing BuzzBee's sneakers for quite a while.. and they are not cute to say the least. Daisy found cute and yet ultra comfy moccasins. I will post pics once BuzzBee is home and can show me where the usb for the cam is.

Where is BuzzBee my wonderful husband you ask? He is at his bachelor party! I know I know, its a little late, but its better a little late than never right?
So BuzzBee picked his fav. restaurant, Red Lobster and his brother and friends took him there for supper. After supper BuzzBee and friends went back to night-owl's house to play their much anticipated video game Halo Reach. Night-owl is BuzzBee's brother and is married to Blossom in case you were wondering. I know it's a bit confusing with the nicknames if you already know these people.

Daisy is now doing her homework and I am waiting for the banana bread to cool so I can take it out of the pan. I have another one to make but only one pan. Actually, the pan isn't even mine I borrowed it from BuzzBee's mother.

I made this recipe pretty much myself. Looked at other recipes and combined what I thought would be good. So here's the recipe:

HoneyBee's Banana Bread
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup ish white sugar
2 eggs
3 medium very ripe bananas (mashed)
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup of chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease two 8x4 inch loaf pans or one 9x5 inch pan.

2. In medium bowl, blend together with a whisk the flour,baking soda, and salt. In a separate, larger bowl, mix together mashed bananas, oil, applesauce, vanilla, eggs and sugars. (mixer on medium or use whisk) Keep mixing until all ingredients are combined.

3. Now add the flour and such from the smaller bowl to the larger bowl and keep on mixing. Just mix enough so that all the ingredients are combined. Stir in walnuts. Divide batter and pour into pan(s)

4. Bake 8 inch loaves about 1 hour, 9 inch loaf 1 hour 15 mins. Cool for 10 minutes

5. Loosen sides from pans; remove from pans and place on wire rack to cool. Let cool completely for two hours, before slicing. Wrap tightly and either store at room temp. for up to 4 days or refrigerate up to 10 days.

Pictures to come soon.
