our father’s day

We stayed home except for a quick trip to Bunnings. {what’s a father’s day without Bunnings, right?}We started the day with Daddy having a sleep-in – believe it or not this is rare for him, he usually lets me sleep in!We made him french toast with freshly whipped cream and strawberries.

Today was no exception, but I had the urge to bake {and more importantly – the time!}.All the mess is worth it when you get this out of your ovenand then the family devours it.I follow a pretty easy recipe for this Banana Bread – original recipe calls for icing but I feel we don’t […]
