What to do with overripe bananas

While at Sam's last week, or the week before, we bought some bananas.  The people that eat bananas in this house consist of 1.5 people.  ME and Mads....sometimes.  Hubby can't stand them and MG thinks they are slimy and gross.  Mads counts for half a person because she takes two bites and decides she is done.

Despite my better judgment I went ahead and got a little bushel of bananas because I was PROMISED they would be eaten.  Now, here we are a week or two later and the bananas are brown.  Ugh.  What is a girl to do?  I took to Pinterest, of course, and looked up a few recipes.

I started with Banana Bread.  I think it is the very first thing most people think of when dealing with overripe bananas.  Let me tell you, there are TONS of Banana Bread Pins on Pinterest.  I settled on this recipe from Edible Garden.

While looking over Banana Bread recipes I discovered Banana COOKIES!  Say WHAT?!?!  I KNOW!  Did you know there was such a thing as banana cookies?  Well, I didn't!  My mouth is still drooling from the possibilities!

I first found these Banana Maple Cookies from This & That.  Call me CRAZY but I think a few pieces of crumbled bacon sprinkled on top would be AMAZING!  Bananas, Maple, Chocolate AND BACON?!  Oh man oh man!

Then!  I saw THESE precious, soft, puffed Banana Cookies from Funky Polkadot Giraffe.  Aren't they precious!?!  They look sooooo soft and good!

Finally, I came across these AH-MAZING looking Banana Cookies from Family Ever After.  They are such precious little puffs.  The icing looks DIVINE as well.

I plan to make at least one of these recipes over the next few days.  I am so excited to share what I decide on and how I liked them.  I am also thinking if the Banana is in the form of a cookie, MG might just eat it!  We shall see.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Getting ready for summer with #MyHartstrings #cbias

Is it warming up where you are?  It has been warming up here for a few weeks now.  With spring break over and the temps slowly getting warmer and warmer, it can only mean one thing.... SUMMER is just around the corner! We like to spend our summers at the lake or at the pool.  Last year we practically lived in our bathing suits!  Since we spent SO much time in our suits last year, they were looking a little warn by the end of summer.  Plus both girls have grown so much this year, they needed new suits. I have been peeking at some suits on Hartstrings.com and decided to go ahead and get new suits!  We may be going to Houston soon so the girls will need something for that trip.  It was REALLY hard to decide on what suit to get the girls, they have such cute options.  Mads is old enough to pick for herself (somewhat) and MG really doesn't care as long as it includes pink. I pulled up Hartstrings.com and let the girls have at it.  I did guide MG into the green and p
