Things I Love Thursday: Minis

Michael's has to be one of my favorite all-time stops....it's one store I could spend hours in, truly, especially right now with all the fall decor and crafts out. I don't know what it is about fall, but it makes me want to go to the craft store and smell all the yummy holiday scented candles and ooohhh and awwww....LOL. The other night I was able to make a quick stop there, and I found the cutest little mini loaf pans in all different colors. They had Thanksgiving colors and Halloween colors, so I mixed and matched. They even had them in the shapes of bats or pumpkins. Then they had some that were white with painted designs on the outside for fall. The best part is that they were only $1. I scooped four of them up, one for each of us; that way, we could each have our very own mini loaf of whatever kind of bread.:)

Then this morning, I made my Aunt Betty's recipe for Banana Bread, and it was delicious....

Banana Nut Bread (I make it without nuts, though.:))
From the kitchen of: Aunt Betty

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed
4 tbsp. sour milk (add just a little vinegar to milk, and let set for about 5 minutes)
1 tsp. vanilla
Chopped Nuts

1. Sour milk.
2. Sift flour and soda together.
3. Mix sugar, oil, and eggs together.
4. Add vanilla.
5. Add mashed bananas.
6. Add dry ingredients with sour milk.
7. Add nuts.
8. Pour into two greased loaf pans (or 4-5 mini loaf pans). You can use Pam or Crisco spray.
9. Bake at 375 degrees until toothpick comes out a little moist with crumbs. Around an hour.

Turn out on towel covered rack to cool.

I love those! How adorable. Makes me sad that the closet Michaels is 30 minutes away.
