We say that a lot in Wisconsin-
even though we KNOW cows are
NOT REALLY HOLY.
You DO know that, right?
Holy Cow- I have been busy.
I didn't get the craft room done yet.
However, I did get the basement sorted.
Yes. I. Did.
To celebrate THAT accomplishment
I wanted something SWEET.
I have been TRYING to eat healthier
so I saw a recipe that someone posted
I decided to make it my own and
change it up just a bit.
You know me-Can't leave well enough alone.
Look and See!
Look and Smell!
Look and Eat!
what the heck are those bubbles in my coffee?
I hope SweetCheeks didn't dump a goldfish in there!
Can you smell them?
Hey! I never said they were PRETTY!
I just said they TASTE GOOD!
See that little Green Bay Beverage bottle
in the top picture?
Here's a closer look.
THAT was sent to me by my friend, Kris,
She found it in an antique store about 200 miles
South of me.
MyHero grew up drinking soda
from Green Bay Beverage Company.
It has been closed and gone for years
and we have NEVER seen one of their
How cool is that?
Hmmm...maybe my flowers would
if I made sure the stems were IN the water.
What do YOU think?
Here is all you need to make these cookies.
Banana Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
2 LARGE very ripe bananas
1-1/3 cups Oatmeal (Quick cook kind)
1/2 cup raisins
2 Tablespoons peanut butter (I used Cashew butter)
1 Teaspoon vanilla (I use Mexican Vanilla)
(optional- Add- 1/3 cup chopped nuts)
Mash bananas completely. Stir in all ingredients.
Drop by large tablespoon onto prepared cookie sheet. I use Baker's Joy spray.
Bake @ 350 until set. (12-15 minutes -or more depending on how dry you like your cookies)
I use air baking sheets. These take about 18 minutes on airbake sheets.
These are so moist and sweet-
You won't believe they don't have sugar in them.
I did NOT get the craft room done.
But I DID get the basement pretty well sorted.
Here is a BEFORE.
I hate to even show it.
I am NOT putting MY name on this
cuz I don't want it floating around the
internet with MY name on it!
I was thinking about putting
SOMEONE ELSE'S NAME
on the picture below.
You know- Someone like
Wouldn't she LOVE to get credit for
having a basement area that looked like THIS?
She would think she died and went to
Is that SAD, or what?
Well, a lot of this has now been
MOVED to the craft room.
And here is that area now.
I stitched some drop cloths,
used clothesline and strung them up
to hide the vacuum, water softener,
and some pipes that run through there.
The table is set up for the kids
to use for craft projects.
All their supplies are in a
cabinet to the left now.
I can just whip the tablecloth off
if the project is messy.
I see a pillow peeking out
from underneath the table.
Apparently, I didn't do my
"blog picture" check
before snapping pictures.
I have pictures of BigBoy E's
first day of school coming soon.
Maybe even tomorrow IF
I can get myself in gear!
Have a great day.
I will be figuring out storage
solutions in the small craft room today
and HOPE to have pictures of
that in the next day or so.
