The Last Post...

...for 2016!

New Years Eve here!

Just a quick post before tea (that leg of lamb smells good!)...


Recipes:  made this Banana Bread recently, due to the ever present problem of over-ripe bananas (I don't like to eat them once they get black on the skin!)...



Here's the recipe which was on the sultana box...

And here's what I did to it:  used dates instead of sultanas; substituted about 1/4 cup of the flour with almond meal; added a dash of cardamom, allspice and ginger; sprinkled some cinnamon/sugar on the top before baking.  It was pretty good, especially warm with butter!!


A few goals for 2017:
  • Read through the books of the Bible in alpabetical order (Acts to Zephaniah).  Already started and am half way through Acts.
  • Buy an electric piano/keyboard and learn to play (have been putting this off for how many years??  The time is now!)
  • Do some patchwork/quilting...I've missed it...
  • Travel....  to places near and far..

I'm sure I'll think of more.



Will finish the year with this...
no explanation necessary



I hope 2017 is all you wish for...and then some...
 
See you next year :))

  2. Happy New Year to you! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I wish you much success and growth as you read through the Bible. That sounds like a fun and interesting method to go alphabetically. :-)
    The banana bread sounds and looks quite yummy!

    1. Hi Abbi! Will post progress reports on my blog throughout the year. I'm using the Holman Christian Standard Bible, which is a bit different too. I prefer the New King James, but will see how this one goes. xx
