Another way to use those extra bananas over ripening on the counter are these delicious biscotti cookies. At 72 calories each (without the chocolate drizzled on top), they are a delightful treat!
They are extra crunchy on the outside, probably because after slicing, they are baked on both of the cut sides.
This sweet little porcelain bootee is special to me.
It commemorates the day that Ryan Emery joined our family. Seven years ago today!
I have booties for each of our four daughters
and all but the last three grandchildren.
The lady that made these beautiful booties sold the business and the new owners are not currently operating. I am very sad. Through the years I have purchased many for special keepsake gifts and really would like to have them for all of our grandchildren.
Look what I found just outside our side door on the arbor there...
A pair of Mourning Doves
Mourning Doves are light grey and brown and generally muted in color. Males and females are similar in appearance. The species is generally monogamous, with two squabs (young) per brood. Both parents incubate and care for the young. Mourning Doves eat almost exclusively seeds source: Wikipedia
I heard a Stock-dove sing or say His homely tale, this very day; His voice was buried among trees, Yet to be come at by the breeze: He did not cease; but cooed--and cooed: And somewhat pensively he wooed: He sang of love, with quiet blending, Slow to begin, and never ending; Of serious faith, and inward glee; That was the song,--the song for me!
Jamie and her family drove up to NY to spend a couple of days with her
twin sister Jill her family.
Four adults and 8 children filled their little house with lots of crazy love!
Here are pictures of their time together.
All of our grandchildren except our oldest, Jared.
Jamie and family got home Saturday night and asked us to join them for Easter morning church service at the Haddonfield Campus. Afterward we headed to their house and shared a bucket of KFC and this bunny cake I made for dessert. Directions on Elaine's blog At Home 'n About.
