My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Walnuts

20090107aweb Blog Prompt - Today is National Cashew Day. What form of nut do you like best? Do you like it alone or in a certain recipe? Do you have a recipe you enjoy the most with nuts in it you would like to share?

My favorite nuts are walnuts. I like pecans too but I think walnuts are sweeter. When I make banana nut bread, I put walnuts in it. When I make a salad, sometimes I like to throw chopped walnuts in it. Here is my recipe for Banana Nut Bread.

Banana Nut Bread

1 ½ c. sugar

1 ½ sticks margarine

1 ½ c. buttermilk

1 ½ tsp baking soda

2 eggs

3 cups plain flour

At least 1 c. mashed banana

1 cup chopped walnuts

1. Cream sugar and margarine.

2. Add eggs and beat.

3. Add flour, soda and buttermilk.

4. Add mashed bananas and nuts

5. Line bottom of greased loaf pans with waxed paper.

6. Bake at 350° for 1 hour.

7. Cool in pans.

8. Remove and wrap with tin foil.

9. Makes 2 loaves and freezes well.

Hey, the kids & I made banana bread yesterday! Our stove looked just like yours with the bread tins lined up on it. I have to argue with the nuts though. Hate having a textural change in my soft banana bread!
