Update for Jim, Banana Bread, and a new curb, what more could a person want?
Jim is doing well. His voice was gone on Tuesday but it is much better today. He sees the oncologist tomorrow for a blood count. He is on his 5th day of predisone and that makes him hyper and antsy, plus really hungry.
I made Banana Bread today.
1 cup of margarine
2 cups of sugar
4 eggs (cream together with margarine and sugar)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons soda
4 cups flour (mix the soda and salt in this and set aside)
6 large bananas mashed
1 cup chopped pecans
325 degrees (preheated oven) for 1 hour and 15 minutes in large loaf pans sprayed with Pam. If you use smaller pans as I do it doesn't take as long. Check for doneness with a toothpick. This makes a lot of batter so be sure and use a big enough bowl.
The curb is being poured as I am typing this. Jim has a chair sat up in front of the window where he is eating banana bread and supervising everything.
Life is good today. Thank you God!
