First Freeze? Banana Bread w/Buttermilk & Brown Sugar, Vietnamese Pork Chops



First Freeze?
Our Autumn decor is out and the weather is moving towards our first freeze. The winter comforter is on our bed and we're doing our outdoor winter prep. Starting to store flowers pots inside, doing the last watering/turf fertilizing, picking the last green tomatoes this weekend. My days of wearing a sweater to work will be coming to an end. Time for coats, hats, gloves. Anya has taken to digging herself under the spare bed comforter. See the lump?

The wind has really picked up today, with gorgeous blue sky. Looks like summer until you go outside, brrr! Last week we had a torrential downpour for 2 days-







Banana Bread w/Buttermilk & Brown Sugar-
Since I had six frozen mushy bananas, it was time for my fall treat. I'm not a pumpkin fan at all, so I make this! I found a new recipe, with buttermilk, Banana Bread w/Buttermilk & Brown Sugar, Walnuts I thought it might cut the sweetness of the bananas. The sprinkling of some raw sugar on top had a nice crunch and shine! I also added raisens. We worked on one (still some left) and the other is in the freezer. It keeps really well in double plastic bags.

I also made this again- Vietnamese Pork Chops w/Radish Salad. The chops come out really juicy! Pretty fast to make, since I did it on a work night. I just fried mine in a skillet. Sorry no photos, but here's Rachel Ray's-

When I crocheted a long rag rug for my bedroom, and put it down, the cats went nuts with it. They would run and dive under it and stay there. So funny. The bread looks amazing.

Yes cats always find something interesting to either play with or to sleep under. Yes that was the best banana bread I've ever had!

Hi Nancy :) I had to laugh at the "lump". My dog Jack does the same thing but his big butt usually hangs out somewhere so he's not as stealthy as he thinks he is lol...we had about a week of frosts but now we have autumn weather, which is really nice. I hope it lasts for a while. Last year we had our first snow fall around this time of year...I am NOT ready for that!

Yes pets can be funny when they find those cute hiding places. I'm hoping we don't get much snow this year since we got so much last year!
