Banana Bread

Been a busy day.  Today was "Take your child to work day".  My youngest son, James took his son to work with him, around 10:00 Parrish, my grandson called and said he was working today with his dad and needed his Mimi to take him to lunch.  So guess what, I stopped what I was doing to get ready for lunch.  It was so nice to have lunch with my boys.  

When I returned home I finished my cleaning and made a loaf of "Banana Bread".  Of course, it is one of my hubby's favorites. 

Remember Mother's Day is 3 weeks away.  Check out my apron's and my recipes.  Make a special dinner for mom and let her sit back and enjoy someone cooking for her.

Getting ready for my Mother in Law!

This is my mother-in-law this past Christmas.  
She is coming for a visit.

I have been busy getting my house ready for my mother-in-law.  She is an unbelievable lady.  She will be staying with us for about 6 weeks so I want to make sure most of my time will be spent with her, visiting and taking care of her.  She is 82 years old, very frail.  Life is so short and when you have time to spend with someone special make sure you do.  I have been working diligently cleaning and organizing so we can spend all our time together.  I will be posting a little bit but most of my time will be with her.

Cleaning the Bathrooms!

It is a cool day here in North Alabama so I have decided to tackle a little cleaning in my bathrooms.

Growing up in Florida; we had a problem with mold and mildew.  We tried everything under the sun to keep the mold at bay.  After years I finally found a deterrent.  I spray this in the shower after I have cleaned it with 1 cup hot vinegar and 1 cup dawn dishwasher's detergent.


1 1/2 cups white vinegar
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon tea tree essential oil
6 drops cinnamon essential oil
8 drops patchouli essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle, shake, spray on the shower every couple of days.  This is the best.

Key Lime Pie

Hubby's Birthday today.  His favorite is Key Lime Pie.  I made this for him last night but had to make cupcakes for the grand kids.  This is not suitable for children.  It has 151 Rum in it and is not cooked out.  Unbelievable pie.  Youngest son spent the day with Larry and made him a special cd of the grandchildren early years with his favorite music.  So beautiful.  I will post this recipe after Easter, I need to finish cooking my Easter dinner for tomorrow.  I will post pictures of all our good dishes.

Come have a cup of tea and I will cut  you a piece of pie.
