Ready Set Eat

To Grandma’s house we go. Always something new to us to eat always at least 100 years old to Grandma. Something new to learn and always way too much to eat. This time it was (let the drum roll begin): minced beef roast sandwiches; banana nut cookies; manicotti stuffed with meat, spinach, onion, ricotta and parmesan; shrimp salad, bunt Cake with Brown sugar topping, overnight soaked French Toast, Ham, Scalloped potatoes, guacamole. Lot’s of wine and drinks. And that was all in about 24 hours.

But from this trip I took Banana goodness cookies. I have no clue where this recipe originates. But apparently it’s 100 years old and pretty good. The only deviation from the recipe was that I used butter instead of margarine. I don’t even know where to buy that stuff! The butter made the cookies taste a little sweeter and not as crunchy. I would probably add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup of rolled oats to the batter as well.

Another addition to this blog is pictures taken with my new camera. Well it isn't that new anymore, I got it a couple of months ago. But I have been so busy with work and living that I haven't had a chance to sit down and document my adventures in the kitchen. But I love this camera! It's a 5D Canon, I bought a 50 mm 1.4 lens for the camera. It's been a lot of fun so far. I still need to sit down and figure out how to really use the camera too.
