The kids continue to enjoy the individual "Jello cups" that I have been making. With 4 remaining in the fridge, I decided to make another, single batch of 4 cups. I normally would make a double batch. I am tweaking my bowl covering. As I cleaned out a closet that stores Crockpots, bread makers, the blender, along with all of the boxes of bags and wraps, I came across some washed and saved foil. I had an ahah! moment. I previously blogged about my technique for making 2 covers out of one narrow sheet of plastic wrap. http://ctonabudget.blogspot.com/2015/01/a-quiet-yet-productive-sunday.html I still am immediately tossing the plastic after one use, however. Instead, I cut one of my reused strips of foil, making 2 foil covers in the process. These can easily be rewashed, rinsed really, and used over. A much better option, IMO.
With additional banana pulp on hand, I am baking off a loaf of Yankee Magazine banana bread-my go to recipe.
Since the oven temp is lower, I will wait until that is finished before baking a sour cream coffee cake, using up most of the sour cream that I have on hand, and providing an easy breakfast in the process.
It's been a while since I made that, and I am guessing that the older kids who raided it, appreciated it! Half was gone when I went to serve breakfast this morning! Banan bread was intact, but 2/3 of the cranberry bread is already gone.
Additionally, I made a batch of these: http://ctonabudget.blogspot.com/2011/08/soft-ginger-cookies-recipe.html
