How Do You Slice Your Bananas?

7 Feb

 

You can really tell that my domestic side is in full force {or not at all} when we have peanut butter and banana sandwiches for dinner.

 

My question to you: How do you slice your bananas? Length-wise, making long slivers of banana in the sandwich? Or width-wise, making little coins of banana throughout the sandwich?

 

Personally, I know it no other way than little coins of bananas scattered throughout my sandwich … {oh, and when we were little and mom wasn’t looking, we added sugar – and lots of it!}

 

Let me know… Night Ya’ll

Christmas, can you wait a week?!

23 Dec

 

Don’t get me wrong, I am really looking forward Christmas. I’ve said it a hundred times, I can’t wait to get home to see my family… but I have so much to do between now and then. I’m starting to feel like that lady at the circus who balances plates on her head. I’ve always said that when I get stressed out like this, I can’t seem to pick one plate to take down and tackle for fear that the whole lot of them will come crashing down on my head. Thats how I feel right now. Too much to do, and not enough time to do it. Unfortunately, this may mean Christmas will come a week late for me. But … if I remind myself, Christmas isn’t about the actual DAY (religiously, yes – but in terms of celebration with family, no) it’s about celebrating the holiday with loved ones. So, if mine is a week late – it’s a week late.

 

On a brighter note, it’s amazing how much I enjoyed a simple sandwich today. You know, like a brown-bag sandwich. White sandwich bread, mayo, turkey, cheese and lettuce. So simple, yet so good when you haven’t had one in a long time. Paired with the Oatmeal Raisin cookies I baked the other day… and I was a happy camper.

And, no … I did not eat ALL these cookies {tempting though}

 

Well, nothing else highly entertaining to talk about. While all of you are out picking up last-minute presents, wrapping, baking, and singing Christmas songs by the fire … I’ll be sitting here, staring at the computer, expanding my brain and hoping it all comes to an end in time to spend some quality time with my family.

“Egg-cellent”

I’m in love with an egg salad sandwich. I don’t have some fancy smancy recipe for egg salad. Just good ‘ol boiled eggs, mayo, salt and pepper. But, darn if it isn’t great. Reminds me of two things: 1. My mom’s house and 2. The Masters golf tournament {its a toss up between this and the pimento cheese}. The one thing that I do recommend though, is Dukes mayonnaise. There is something so “southern” about Dukes, it’s just a necessity…. Perhaps I will try to track down a recipe for the Masters sandwiches. I wonder how different it is from mine, since there are so many variations. Anyhow – Enjoy!
