Happy Birthday to two very special people today.
Firstly Nan (Great Nanny to Little and Small), who despite being 88 today and driving us all nuts with her antics of late we all love dearly. I could write a book about her antics but I wont. Secondly to my lovely Stepdad, M a very happy birthday too. Thanks for lots of things, mostly for putting up with my mum. (that's a joke Mum!) I expect I will take that bit out before hitting publish, but I might not... I've definitely got some naughty pixie sat inside my head today. Must be something about it being half term.
For the cake, I thought it fitting to remember Nan's banana and honey tea loaf recipe that I posted about some time ago. Click here for the recipe.
I really have to move on from the all the stodge I've been making and eating. There's a chicken roasting in the oven for dinner, stuffed with some of the lemons that had been zested for all the lemon cakes. I've also made a bread pudding (not to be confused with bread and butter pudding). It's 20 to 5 and I've thought about hitting the sloe gin. It's a year old and particularly good. Again, possibly because it's half term!
