Surfing Saturday, September 3, 2022!

Good Morning How are you friend? I hope these beautiful pink lilies bring you some happiness today. They are called “naked ladies” (or belladonna amaryllis), and they pop up in the Bay Area around this time of year. beautiful, yes?

We just finished breakfast; I had a cup of coffee with a slice of homemade banana bread. My neighbor gave me a big bunch of bananas last weekend, and so I made Creamy Banana Bread,

I doubled the quantity and put it in a bundt pan! It was very easy to make and required very little effort.

Please ignore the crappy bits, lol! Apparently I didn’t grease that part of the pan enough.

I went around giving slices to my neighbors and got five-star ravs! Connor loves it too. I will definitely be making it again soon. If you have ripe bananas (you’ll need about three) and sour cream around, give this a try.

Oh, I would like to note that I reduced the sugar by a quarter because the bananas I used were too ripe. Doing so added just enough sweetness without taking it over the edge. I’ve found that as I get older, I don’t like things that are too sweet. Anyone else notice this? This is WILD for me as I have been eating sweets since childhood. Strange how your taste buds turn!
