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!
I have wanted to go to Hays House for years, and I made it happen last June when we headed to the Black Hills. We went up to see the Mine Creek Battlefield and then headed west from there...got to Hays about 2 but had wonderful late lunch. I was happy! Ice tea was wonderful.
I love how you speak of your charming home and your recipes and old fashion mindset ! We are kindred spirits! From Cindy at Green Gables Farm !
Is that pot especially made for daffodil bulbs? I've never seen anything like it. BTW, Thanks for sharing Clock Tower Bakery in Overland Park. I visited a friend in Olathe last week and we had afternoon tea. It was yummy!
I love reading cookbooks, Martha! Do you have any good recommendations for tea in Savannah? I am going there in September and also to Charleston.
YuMMy!!! Banana walnut muffins, dear friend!!!
I'll be watching for the fruits of your labours from the recipes tucked inside these cookbooks!!!
