Hello all! Okay, so it's come to my attention that a few people that I sent the email too aren't going to forward it on. Fair enough; I had a hard enough time thinking of a recipe myself! *g* But I'd appreciate if you'd told me, because the person who sent it to me was really looking forward to getting some recipes.

[livejournal.com profile] rosenchanted told me that she couldn't think of any, so I forwarded a recipe of my own, and that's what I intend to do if others can't, because as I said, [livejournal.com profile] truehobbit was looking forward to the recipes.

Now I know that quite a few people (myself included!) delete chain letters out of hand, but this one did say if you couldn't take part, let the person who sent it know. After all, this isn't exactly a "sent it to 10 people and you will have luck for 10 years" kind of email! *g*

Anyway, I just wanted to point out that if anyone can't send it on, for whatever reason, could you let me know? :)

Okay, so it's a wee bit late, but here's the recipe for the banana bread I've been raving about!

Now go forth and bake! *g*

So, last night I got home and found that we had four very, very brown bananas. Obviously they needed using up but couldn't be eaten on their own. Naturally, I thought of banana bread. I've never actually made banana bread before, but that's not going to stop me!

C and I found a recipe that was a Banana and Apricot Tea Loaf and called for two bananas and dried apricots. We do have dried apricots, but as we had twice as many bananas as the recipe required, it was generally decided to leave out the apricots (which, seeing as I really dislike them, I was happy about!). Anyway, the resulting banana bread loaf is GORGEOUS! And yes, it deserves capitals! It's slightly crunchy on the outside, and soft and moist and dense on the inside.

I had two slices with butter for breakfast. Yummy, yum, yum! Much better than the disaster that was my chocolate cookies that turned out like those biscuits you have with coffee - very small and very hard! Okay, they were edible and nice, but not what they were meant to be! Turned out I'd used granulated sugar instead of caster sugar and hadn't creamed the sugar and butter together enough (which would have been a lot easier had I used caster sugar, but we didn't have any - used granulated again in the banana bread and it didn't make any difference this time). But my banana bread is a rip-roaring success! If there's any left by the time I get home, I'll take a photo! (And post the recipe.)

So, [livejournal.com profile] loriel_eris, [livejournal.com profile] rosenchanted, Sam, and myself went climbing today, and we actually took photos. I'm not sure if this link will work if you're not a member of Facebook; it says it will, but you never can tell! Anyway, here's the link to the climbing photo album:

Climbing Album

In other news, it's Easter, in case you didn't know, and for the occasion (and also climbing) I made some chocolate orange muffins. *g*

And I took photos of the flowers out the front of our house.

So here is Food and Flower porn )

So there you go! Photo mania!
