What I've been up to...

I've been super busy since Thanksgiving weekend. I haven't had much time to get online and write. It started with using the whole weekend to find a new mama mobile, and luckily Sunday afternoon we did.

 Then this week has been full of errand running and Christmas shopping. The good thing is everything is wrapped and under the tree. The only thing I still need to get is something for my husband and I'm still trying to figure what that is going to be.

Saturday night consisted of baking some lemon bread and then running my 10 year old to the urgent care to get two staples put in his head. He hit his head on a cabinet in our kitchen and it split his head open, thankfully it stopped bleeding pretty quickly and he's doing just fine.

 The lemon bread had just come out of the oven as we were running out of the door. The recipe is below. 

When life gives you lemons make lemon bread
1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice (fresh preferably)
2 large eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tbs grated lemon zest, if using a fresh lemon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a loaf pan.

In a bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, lemon juice and eggs.
In another bowl, sift together, the flour, baking powder and salt.
Add the flour mixture and milk to the butter mixture alternately, beginning and ending with flour.
Fold in lemon zest.
Pour batter into the pan and bake for 1 hour 10 minutes.
Cool for 10 minutes, then turn onto a wire wrack.

I've also been busy making "thank you" cards, these are going to be presents for the female members of the family. Well little miss Hannah is crying so that's it for now.
