Finally! An Organized Sink!

I don’t know if any of you have trouble with having too much stuff scattered around the kitchen sink, but I sure do!  Since I have moved into my new apartment, my kitchen is a good deal smaller than I am used to, so I need to have every inch of counter space that is available.  Because of that, all the stuff around the sink does make for quite a dilemma!  It is all stuff that I need on a daily basis, hand soap, dish soap, sponge, etc., but it does leave for a bit of disorganization.

Banana Pancake Good-ness

If you haven't figured it out by now, I am a fan of easy recipes.  I also do not like to waste food (or anything for that matter! :P).  One thing that drive me nuts is that bananas ALWAYS start to turn brown before I can finish eating all the bananas from the bunch.  I have tried all the tricks: taring them apart, wrapping the stems in tinfoil, etc. I usually put the bananas in the freezer when they turn brown and use them to make smoothies (frozen bananas make great smoothies!).  But now I have found another great use for the bananas that are getting a little soft!  Banana Pancakes!

I took 1 banana that was getting little soft, 2 eggs, a dash of cinnamon and tsp of vanilla and smashed/mixed it all together.  It became a thin batter-like consistency.

The Goodbye Party

I have been a Washingtonian for about two weeks – time sure does fly!  There have definitely been times of home sickness, that is for sure, but there have been a lot of good times as well.  Before I left Pennsylvania, I had a little goodbye party, simply because I didn’t have time to say “see you later” to everyone that I wanted to and I have been reminiscing on that time.  My dear friend brought a cake with the perfect message on it:
