Beautiful Lancaster County

We headed off to a great adventure this week! Lancaster, Pennsylvania is a short drive from Annapolis and a wonderful place to just relax and enjoy life at a slower pace… well as slow as you can be with a newly turned five year old Princess in tow!

The Turkey Hill Farm experience was lots of fun. I recommend the ice cream tasting!

The Amish horse and buggies are picturesque and make the drive so interesting.

This view!

If I won the lottery, all these quilts, and many more, would come home with me.

Hidden Strawberry Bread

I am calling this hidden strawberry bread. The reason? While pursuing the contents of our backup basement freezer my Hero found a bag of strawberries way in the back from our strawberry picking experience from last May. What a find! It’s a simple quick bread and I am quite proudly using coconut oil for the first time…I’m a little late to that party apparently.

The Usual Cast Of Characters

1 1/2. cups all-purpose flour

1/2. cup sugar

2 1/2. teaspoons baking powder

1/2. teaspoon salt

1. egg, lightly beaten

1/2. cup mashed banana (1 large)

1/2. cup milk

1/3. cup coconut oil, heated if needed to become more liquid

1/2. cup sliced strawberries

The Steps to Glory

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 8×4-inch loaf pan with shortening or cooking spray.

2. In large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, coconut, baking powder and salt; make well in center of mixture.

3. In medium bowl, beat egg, mashed banana, milk and oil with whisk until well blended. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Stir in the strawberries. Spoon batter into pan.

4. Bake 45 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Sweet treat with tea!

Did you feel Spring in the air this weekend? Such a lovely Saturday…Sunday not so much. The Princess was inspired by the warm weather and decided sketching in the garden was good way to spend the day.
