I got this recipe from my mother. I remember eating the banana pancakes when I was a child back in Panama. My mother was and still is the type of person who doesn’t waste any food. So when bananas were ripe, we made Oh Mighty Ripe Banana Pancakes for breakfast!
We had a late night escapade with the kids over the weekend. Anything after 8pm is late for our family. The kids were in their pajamas and ready to have ice cream.
We had never been to Hot Rod Ice Cream Shoppe but knew that it was inside the Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park(TM). Getting to it was like coming up to a smaller version (very small version) of the entrance to Disney World. The road was winding and then…there he was…Yogi to the left. I kept waiting to see if any pic-a-nic baskets going to get snatched off tables!
For the first time this Friday I was able to stop by the Hip Donelson Farmers Market. As I walked around the different vendors, my eyes and feet gravitated towards Wild Flours Organic Mill and Bakery. What can I say, I LOVE BREAD and anything related to it!
A beautiful display of breads, muffins, cinnamon rolls and scones were calling out to me all at the same time! I literally kept going back and forth trying to decide what I would pick. Continue reading →
What better way to thank someone than with a cupcake? It’s thoughtful, crafty and plain genius. It shows that person that you either took the time to make it or pick it out just for them. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Making others feel special and unique can brighten their day. It also makes us feel great when we see someone smile over something we have given them.
I’m the first one to admit that I can be a creature of habit. This can be good or bad depending on how you look at it. So as I do every week or two weeks (depending on what kind of week I’ve had), yesterday I headed to my local liquor store to pick up my usual red wine. That being said, I was feeling a little adventurous.
So today I decided to take my hubby out for a lunch date. We had heard about Guac on the Hip Donelson Facebook page. I assumed it was a new restaurant.
Boy, was I wrong! While talking to the owner, Rakesh, we find out that its been open for 3 years!!!
Where have I been? I’ve lived in Donelson for 5 years and didn’t know this place existed.
I ordered the burrito combo.
The server gave me a laundry list of tortilla types to pick from. I had no idea that there were so many! I go with the tomato tortilla. You can build it with any veggies, sauces and condiments you want.
The burrito turned out to be a lot bigger than my eyes. I ordered the super instead of the regular combo.
The black beans were as fresh as when I cook them at home (from scratch). The rice didn’t taste like instant rice (kudos for that).
The veggies looked and tasted like if they were straight from the garden or a farmer’s market.
Overall, my burrito lunch was super tasty, fresh and yummy! We will definitely go back.
Lesson learned: I need to be aware of my surroundings!
I have forgiven myself for not knowing about Guac before 🙂 !
