Things at our house have been super busy. I don’t know about you, but May is just as busy as December. We have had a guitar recital, baseball games and practices, soccer games, class plays, talent shows, 4 family birthdays, classroom field trips, yard work, music lessons, and etc. So I have not been doing a lot of crafting. Is it just our house that seems to be this hectic in May? Or do you feel it at your house too?
I did manage to make some delicious Banana Berry Bread amidst the chaos though. I simply took my favorite Banana Bread Recipe and added a 1/2 cup of mixed frozen berries (raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. Super easy and It turned out great. I loved the addition of the berries and it gave new life to a common baked good. Everyone in the family gave it the thumbs up. Not something that happens all that often.
