Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Banana, er, Bread?

It grows in bunches, I've got my hunches...

Winter always puts me in a baking mood, but I confess the giddiness starts the moment the seasons change from Summer to Fall. While I'm not someone who shops for Christmas in June, I do secretly start celebrating the holiday season the day after my birthday (which is before Halloween even), so it's no surprise to me that the baking bug has started nudging around the kitchen these days. Besides, gray, rainy days call for something warm and yummy ... and being in Seattle, we're never short a rainy day so I think I'll have plenty of opportunities to get flour all over myself. Anyway, this was my very first banana bread ever, so I thought I'd dress her up, and take a picture. It actually turned out, and the rikkis liked the end cuts too!

Back to School

Well, I'm ready. I've got my fresh set of pencils for the new year ... though, to my knowledge I'm not actually enrolled anywhere. Old habits, I guess.
There's something about this time (my fave) of year though, when it's still warm outside, but one day you feel the first bite of fall on your sunny summer day, and you know change is in the air. If winter has its hibernating, and spring its cleaning, and summer is for playing, then surely fall is for organizing, and getting ready, but as you get older what exactly are you getting ready for? I suppose finding out will be part of the adventure!
