I was a bit busy with cranking stuff through the kitchen the last couple of days, and have more plans in the near future!
First I made four 1/2 pints of dill beans, adjusting the recipe slightly since I didn't have red peppers but DID have some hot peppers and jalapenos (and another recipe for the same thing I'd been given awhile back called for all jalapenos). I also upped the garlic a bit - so hopefully once these beans are done pickling or whatever it is they do, they'll have some kick!
And last nite I figured I better use up the 4 bananas that were on the verge of getting too ripe. Since the last round of banana bread I made, which I experimented with and added frozen blueberries to, went over so well at work, I figured I'd do the same thing again. Just dumped some frozen blueberries into a mix of flour and granulated sugar, stirred 'em around in the dry mix, then stirred just the dusted berries in the banana bread batter. REALLY GOOD! I figure the flour/sugar mixture is mainly to stop the berries from sinking (the same is done with chocolate chips in batters), but I added the sugar just in case the berries weren't sweet enough.
As you can see from the pics below, I made two loaves with the four bananas. Last time I only took a half loaf in to work and it was wiped out in no time. This time Brett and I each got a full loaf to take in, and both were down to just a slice or two shortly after lunch, so I guess they're a hit! :)
I've got two zucchini on the kitchen counter - I figure it's time to make more zucchini bread next, eh?
