Weekend Recap

What a nice, cozy, chillout weekend!

I did nothing urgent this weekend although I did a lot of cleaning!!

It was sooooooooooo nice to get the spring cleaning in full swing - I love love love a clean home!!!

It just smells soooooooooooo good now!!!

Here is a pic recap of what my doing nothing weekend looked like.

Below is Waliacha looking really proud and cute (I must say). This is Lucky my 16 year old cat that hates everyone!!! She has apparently now grown fonder of Waliacha than me....he is her new buddy and she now chooses to lay on him and not me :-(
Oh well, it is nice that SOMEONE likes him more than me!!! LOL

Another picture of the new buddies.......

And another....

Here is a picture of my WAY healthy banana nut wheat muffins....

And here is the recipe...

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
1/4 cup applesause
1/2 cup honey
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup smashed soy nuts

Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C).
Combine oil, honey, eggs, vanilla, and mashed bananas in a bowl.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, wheat germ, salt, and baking soda. Make a well in dry ingredients, and add the banana mixture. Mix together until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in nuts. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake 1 hour in preheated oven. Test for doneness, and cool on wire rack.
(I followed this recipe above but I poured into cupcakes and baked for about 15 min.)

Here is my new china cabinet with my china (Sweet Leilani) and crystal all loaded. I am still working on the organization of everything in it, but this is the jist! I love it sooooooo much!!! I was married like 15 years ago for a very brief 6 months and this china has remained in boxes ever since....It is soo nice to get it out and display it and have a little happiness from it!! The bottom shelf is all stuff that my mother or grandmother has passed down and a few new favorite thing in the condo!
Note: my very few Cats Meows across the top!! I would love to get more but dont travel much - if any of my bloggy friends live near a place that sells them I would gladly pay you to pick me up a few from special places in your area......
