Sunday afternoon was spent in the breakfast room
But first, I baked some banana muffins
For a big sack of bananas was just 90 cents at the store
And I needed six
to make this fruit salad
But there were still more than we would eat . . .
And my newest cookbook
from a place that we've visited and loved
The Hays House
in Council Groves
Not all that far from our house on the prairie
And yes, that is right -- it started in 1857!
Had an easy recipe for banana muffins
And they were --
easy and good!
(I did, however, add chopped walnuts to the batter --
I love banana walnut muffins!)
Two found there way on a plate and into the breakfast room
along with a pot of tea
And a pile of cookbooks
For I've company coming to Linderhof in February
(which starts tomorrow!)
And I wanted new things to try!
The Thalias Tasting Tour Recipes date from the 80s and are from Nevada
They are much loved and much used
Savanah Collection is from a trip daughter Sarah and I took to Savannah and is a wonderful book
(I'm eyeing an entree from that book for one of my luncheons)
Virginia Hospitality is a new old book (dating from the 80s) and was recommended by dear friend, Francie. And it is as good as she says!
Sunday afternoon . . .
a pot of tea, a couple of muffins and a whole pile of cookbooks
There isn't a better way to while away a Sunday!
