Last night I decided to start racing my sister on our blog reader counts. You probably know this if you have seen my Twitter or FB pleas for help today. It's not really a fair race because I didn't put my counter on the blog until several months in and I have mine set not to count my own IP address. So anyway, she's kicking my tail, but the goal was to get more people reading. I don't know why really. It just feels good to know people are reading what we write.
(If you haven't read her blog, it's the one called 50 Sticky Fingers over in my blog list on the left there. She has 5 of the cutest kids in the world, including a set of twins, so she blogs about them with great pictures most days.)
Anyway, I have nothing much to report today, but as the title would suggest, I am really excited about the banana bread I made. I used my friend Sommer's recipe, which you can find here. This recipe is now going to be my standard, so, sorry if I've made you banana bread before this, you'll just have to get sick or have another baby to get this kind! Her recipe calls for shredded coconut or diced apples, and I went for the apples. This is the second recipe that I've used from her blog and both have been winners. Since I'm not in a blog race with her, I highly recommend you go check it out.
In case you were wondering about the baby count at our church, (which if you remember in January was 12 due through Sep/Oct) we're up to 4 as of yesterday, with #5 coming tomorrow. Thus the banana bread.
Well, if you want to help me win the race with my sister, here's what you can do:
1) Go to my actual blog instead of looking at it on Facebook (if you can) http://annasjoyblog.blogspot.com
2) Go to the Share button over there on the left and post it on FB or Twitter
3) E-mail it to all your friends and family. They'll love it. Hey, they could get a new banana bread recipe from it!
