Yesterday morning, after the pups had their breakfast, I made myself some banana oatmeal and the usual tea, and enjoyed it out on the deck. The temperatures have come down a bit, and it's lovely to sit in the morning sun for a while.
It's so annoying when all the bananas are ripe at the same time, and I have to come up with ways to eat them before they are too mushy. The other day I made a banana sauce, to go with banana pan cakes. I don't know if anybody had made that before, but here it is, and I'm telling you because it tasted so good! But it's to be eaten right away, as you know all the banana stuff gets brown fast. So, I threw a banana in the blender, added a splash of Maple Syrup, a splash of whip cream, and a handful of mixed, salted nuts, and gave it a good blend. It was thick, creamy and delicious on the pan cakes.
Anyway, every time I try and watch my weight, I love to cook, and experiment in the kitchen. :o)
While I had breakfast, the pups watched the neighbor watering her plants.
Today's handspun yarn was made with Southern Cross Fiber fiber club April 2011, Jacobs Humbug fiber in the colorways Tentrils and Charred. It's been done for quite a while now. This is not soft fiber, but even though it was dyed, it still was wonderfully easy to spin. David has a soft touch with his fiber, and it makes it a pleasure to spin all the time.
And here's Tentrils:
For now, they are marinating in the handspun bin, until I know what to do with them. Too bad the Jacobs fiber is so scratchy, and hairy.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
