For SCOTT 🙂 I saw this funny picture of these 2 cats. If I went home to Heaven I would want my children to know that I know they feel scared. They will want to pick up the phone and call and me, or get on a plane or car come see me and I won’t be there. That is scary. Thank you for missing me. I miss you too! But our parting is temporary.
I want you to move on in the style that is all you! And from Heaven I will be able to see you! And you still will make me laugh!!
Love Forever Mom
Scott I think your Mom wants you to know that!
The 139th Kentucky Derby is today. Churchill Downs will fill up with well dressed fans who are betting their horse will boost their luck for the year. I love everything about these three races. Stock up on supplies for Mint Juleps, finger sandwiches, fried chicken, potatoe salad and pecan pie. The foods that make you think of the South and Kentucky.
So we didn’t make it to the Derby this time. It’s only $40 to attend. We can still bet on the horses and watch this festive event with friends. Many people have hat contests at their Derby parties. Whatever encourages play after a long week is well invited.
To get an idea of perfect Derby hats you might want to look at Maggie Mae’s Designs.
We will talk more in depth about creating a party for the next two races coming up: The Preakness Stakes in Maryland and the Belmont Stakes in New York. These races go great with parties because the actual race is short and everyone can focus and root their horses on in competition.
If you are just getting to know a new person or dating them for a while seeing how they handle winning or losing is an important thing to see.
This race will also be interesting with the woman jockey in the race.
I occasionally bring different treats into my husband’s work. I bring a variety of caramel chocolate pretzels and apples, cookies, popcorn mixes, cinnamon rolls, and many other things. But for some reason these banana bars seem to be their favorite! My husband always texts me within 30 minutes and says that they whole pan is already gone. They are different from other banana bars I have tried. The sour cream in them makes them moist and perfect! I love them, but I think they love them even more then I do! They are my go-to bar recipe when I am trying to feed a crowd a easy dessert! Try them at your next bridal or baby shower or BBQ! They will be a HIT for sure!
Frosted Banana Bars ~ 1/2 cup butter, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1 cup sour cream, 2 cups flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 medium ripe bananas
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, sour cream, and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients in seperate bowl and gradually add in to creamed mixture. Spread evenly in a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes (or until lightly brown and when you stick a knife in only a little is left on it)
Frost when cool. Store in fridge.
Cream Cheese Frosting ~ 8 ounces cream cheese, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 1/2 cup butter softened, 3 3/4- 4 cups powdered sugar

I love one junk food cake and it’s Banana Twins. I never buy them, too many chemicals. But these look worth trying.
