Tar trails and dandelions

I woke up hungry.  So after my morning time in the Bible, I decided to make pancakes. I had bananas, raisins, and pecans… so I came up with a recipe for banana pancakes.

These are hearty pancakes and I made them big, using 1/2 cup of batter for each pancake.  Two pancakes will fill you up.

Hearty Banana Pancakes
by Sonia Parham

  • 3 bananas mashed, they should be ripe but not over ripe
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose white flour
  • 2 heaping teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, or the amount needed for the batter consistency you like.

In a bowl combine mashed bananas, egg and brown sugar.  In another bowl combine flours, baking powder and salt.  Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture, add the milk and blend well. Stir in the pecans and the raisins.  Cook the pancakes on medium heat until done.

Try out different toppings to use.  My daughter ate hers with nothing on them, my husband tried a little strawberry jam on the bottom pancake and a little syrup on the top one.  I ate my pancakes with a little peanut butter and strawberry jam.  They are yummy.  🙂

I got a few pics this week that I thought were good.  You never know what I might take a picture of,  new blooms, what most people call weeds, tar trails in the road…

Went to a flea market today and had a good find.  A pattern book for quilting with the folded star, for $0.50 and a book on gifts from a jar.  It is like new, with the raffia, fabric and all the printed recipe cards. I got it for $3.50.
Hugs,
Sonia

PS, I updated the Quilts tab.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
