Memories, Possibility & Banana Bread!

"Maybe all life's promises didn't come true. But the morning came didn't it, and look, a sparrow sings in the tree". ~ Flavia

We flew to Dallas, Texas on Christmas night and returned last night just before the New Year rang in. We spent the week recalling old memories with friends and family while having fun making new memories too. The quote above was written on a plaque in the guestroom I stayed in. It seems so appropriate for New Year's day and I wanted to share it with you.

It seems to me that all we can do in life is balance the good with the bad. Because no matter who you are or what you have or have not accomplished there will always be some of life's promises that don't come true.

When I returned home there was an email sent to me from a friend who recently used my recipe for Banana Bread and said how much she and her family enjoyed it.

I missed baking while I was out of town. I left a bunch of not quite ripe bananas on my counter when we left and now a week later they are perfect for baking banana bread.

A new year seems to be about possibility and I hope 2011 holds many possibilites for you.
