1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
(throw in some nutmeg and a dash of salt, too)
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 medium)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cooking oil
Grease the bottom and half inch up the sides of an 8 x 4 x 2-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Make a well in the center of dry mixture; set aside.
In another bowl combine the egg, bananas, sugar, and cooking oil. Add egg mixture all at once to dry mixture. Stir just till moistened (batter should be lumpy).
Spoon batter into the prepared pan. Bake in a 350* oven for 50-55 minutes or till a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Recipe here says to cool, wrap and store overnight...but, I don't follow directions very well; we ate it warm with lots of butter. =)

On Saturday we trekked up to the Olympic Game Farm in Sequim to celebrate Valentine's Day. Romantic, huh? We'll take dining on cheap bread with wild animals over wine and caviar in a fancy restaurant any day. ;)
This guy had it all figured out. "I'll just park myself right here in the road, so they'll HAVE to stop and feed me!"
And then up to Dungeness for lunch on the shore. I love the sharp wind on the water in February!
My three sweethearts. ♥♥♥

Will you take a walk of discovery with us?
We cross the lawn and enter the mossy woods where our properties meet.

So let's give it another go, eh?
Another couple of blind swishes through the bowl of hearts, and...
