Head, Thorax, Abdomen

Presenting Ethan singing his Insect Song:
Head, Thorax, Abdomen
Head, Thorax, Abdomen
Eyes, Mouth, Antennae too,
Six legs, and there's an insect for you!


Please excuse the lighting!  I did it at night in a dimly lit room.  It makes my children look sickly. 

My brother Daniel impersonates his dog (aka his furry child)  While he was here he constantly made Bentley noises.  Daniel thought it would be a good idea if he taught Cameron the finer Bentley noises.  And now that Daniel is gone, Cameron is constantly impersonating Bentley.  So, don't bother playing this unless you are Daniel.  Only Daniel will find this mildly amusing:

Feed Me Friday
Banana Bread is the most classic recipe of all quick breads.  It is classic because of the speed and simplicity in which it is prepared.  The ingredients are basic staples in any pantry, so it can also be thought of as an “old faithful” recipe.

I wanted to try my own spin to this classic.  I wanted to see if vanilla yogurt would make this bread moist and add any flavor.  I believe it did.  This Banana Yogurt bread is moist and delicious.  I added chocolate, but this quick bread would be just as delicious without it. This recipe received:êêêêê

Cameron was our top eater.  He had four slices with dinner, and two more slices for an after school snack the next day. 
Madison liked this bread, despite the fact that she doesn’t like bananas


½    Cup butter, softened

1     Cup sugar

2          large eggs

1          teaspoon vanilla extract

3          mashed bananas

½         Cup vanilla yogurt

       Cups all-purpose flour

1          teaspoon baking soda

1          teaspoon salt

½         teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/3       Cup semisweet chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar together until creamy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.  Add the vanilla, bananas, and vanilla yogurt and beat until well blended.

Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together.  Mix at low speed with the banana mixture until well blended. 

Pour batter into greased bread pan.  Bake at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes until inserted knife comes out clean.  Cool on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove from pan and let cool completely on wire racks.
