I Won!

I won a give-away over at ...Pieces, too...! Isn't that just the coolest way to begin Spring?

What a marvelous idea - tree cosies or cheerful knitted sweaters for trees! I'd love to walk down town and see these trees dressed in brightly knitted, form-fitting yarn. Via Extreme Craft.

Robin suggested slicing up bananas and freezing them. Sounded like a great idea to me, so I sliced and covered with plastic wrap... And yum, yum - - I will always freeze my bananas from now on: Frozen banana slice are the best!

Or...almost the best. At least equally as good is to take those frozen banana slices, add some milk, and some cinnamon and put them in the blender for a Banana Smoothie. Then, if you happen to have a little left over pineapple and some pineapple juice, dump that in, too. Dee-licious and filling, too!


  1. Kim - Both snacking on the frozen slices and the smoothie are yummy!

  2. I was going gaga over your bananas and when you put the cinnamon in I swooned. But the addition of fresh pineapple? Positively brilliant!

    The knitknot trees in Yellow Springs (gee I wonder where the town got that name...) are really cool!

  3. This is weird...I've never frozen banana slices before and I just did it today, about an hour ago. Then I read your post! I was planning to blend my frozen slices with yogurt & strawberries for an Easter morning smoothie. Pineapple sounds good, too. Yum!

  4. Rian - Today I splashed orange juice into the mix. The citrus flavor of the orange and pineapple just adds a sparkle to the flavor! And I loved those trees with their sweaters!

    Zegi -- Those frozen banana slice are good by themselves, too, aren't they?

  5. Now I'm hungry!
    Wishing you and yours a wonderfully Happy Easter!

  6. Sandra - Happy Easter to you as well!

  7. funny I used to make smoothies all the time when I was a young woman in my 20s and 30s ....geez, it's been twenty years - thanks for tweaking my memory. time to find the blender and get back in the habit.

  8. kimy - I'm having to put a limit on them as I could literally drink them all day. Years ago, I made them, too, and added plain yogurt, but for some reason was never just crazy about them. Maybe it is freezing the bananas and skipping the ice and yogurt, but Mmmmm!


Good to hear from you!
