Spring 2015 ~ Randomness

Some peeks into my Spring.

The hostas I planted in 2013 and forgot about came up again.   Love me some hostas because they’re so easy to grow.

Eating supper on the front porch can be so relaxing after spending the day inside.

My oldest daughter has fallen in love with gardening.  She has planted so many beautiful flowers this Spring.  Now I need to get her interested in veggies. 🙂

After an extensive search, I was so excited to find this cute owl mug for only .25 at the thrift store!

I love it when my hubby cranks up the grill.  I know some yummy food is on the way.  He prepared enough for us to eat on through the week and when the grilled veggies were gone, I pan roasted these in the oven.  Real food and good eatin’!

After my last post on that beautiful Spring day,  I found out my oldest brother had died suddenly.  He left a void in the lives of his daughters, grandchildren, siblings, and father.  I think of him often and miss him daily.  Some of my family made the trip to Reelfoot Lake in his memory.

Thanks for stopping by!

Peanut Butter Banana “Ice Cream” (& a review)

Just ever now and then I will eat a banana.  I’ve been wanting to try this frozen banana “ice cream” for a while.  Well now I have.

Yesterday I finally made the frozen banana “ice cream”.  I processed a banana that I had cut into 1″ chunks and froze, with a tablespoon of natural peanut butter and Swerve sweetener to taste.

It reminded me of a soft serve ice cream.

Now, on to the review…

The good: Bananas are a good source of dietary fiber, Vitamin C, Potassium and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin B6.

The bad: A large portion of the calories in this food come from sugars.

So, while this is a reasonably healthy recipe for some, it’s highly unlikely that I will make this recipe again.  🙂
