Memories of 18 8-tracks for a penny, lol. I'll order as I drink.

LOL Pac, I had forgotten about that one! I think mine are still in the basement.

I'm drinking my second cup of espresso allongé. It may be the last one out of my espresso machine.

I was going to make one for Stirling, but the light didn't come on when I turned it on. We checked that the plug is working. I also tried turning on the pump, in case the light in the off/on switch was burnt out. Nothing, no light, no noise. Well, we have had it for 16 1/2 years.

Once Stirling is wide awake he will have a look at it to see if there is anything obvious, like a breaker or burnt fuse or loose wire.

I made a stove top mocha for Stirling. Good, but not as good the stuff from the machine.

I'm jealous! I haven't made banana bread since I got rid of my fruit fly problem a couple years ago
Nor banana nut ice cream...
hmmm, maybe I'll be safe in the winter...

Was that the worse "club" or what?
It taught me at an early age how to deal with those people that hide behind the fine print

And with Amazon Prime (that's supposed to be going up ) I had my coffee delivered yesterday. UPS had a case of coffee on one shoulder and a case of ammo on the other

I have a cup of Dark Magic coffee washing down a bowl of Honey-Orange Greek Yogurt with Flax seeds.

i'm being a piggy and having seconds--'nother slice of banana bread and a mug of fogchaser. i hadn't bought any bananas since mom died, and i don't eat fresh bananas myself. but i got this craving for some moist, nutty banana bread, and it just wouldn't go away. i didn't have the patience to wait for the bananas to ripen either. so i bought 2 big bunches of over-ripe bananas that were discounted at my relay food place. two hours later, i had my banana bread--three beautiful loaves--cracked, crusty and golden. well, a half loaf is already gone...life is good

Woohoo! The espresso machine doesn't seem to be dead. I let it cool off and tried the switch again and got lights.

vit, where is this recipe you speak of? I looked for the banana nut recipe that was being discussed in some other thread a couple weeks back and couldn't find it. Don't know if it was pac's or not, but the recipe I finally used wasn't as good as my usual one - which seems to be drier than I remember it from when I first started to use it decades ago. Maybe bananas just aren't as moist as they used to be.

I think the recipe I've used is from former member "mama". I'm not sure if I tweaked it or not, but it's pretty moist.
If it isn't here I'm sure it's on her website. If it's still up. And don't ask me what it is cuz I have no idea anymore
I miss mama She was a helpful member.
