Tea time...

Oooh...yummy. Posted this new item on my etsy shop today. A delightfully fruity blend of tea with orange peel,lemon grass,rosehips and peppermint and hibiscus.
Very yummy and refreshing.
I am striving to bring very nice items to my shop/customers. My husband designed the labels for me..aren't they just sooo pretty?
Anyhow..if you like tea..you'll like this one.Real excited to be offering this.

I helped my daughter post 3 aprons on her etsy shop today too.
Really cute farmgirlish' aprons.So maybe her little shop can start doing something too.

O.k. Time for another old fashioned recipe..this time from a Calument Baking Powder Company Cookbook from 1912 titled " Reliable Recipes"
I found this old cookbook in a local bookstore a couple years ago and although it had a torn cover it was still cute and a good find.

So..here is a recipe for
Banana Fritters
1 3/4 cup pastry flour
1 1/2 level tsp.calumet baking powder
2 Tabsp.sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs ,beaten seperately
1/4 tsp. salt
Sift flour then measure,add baking powder,salt, sugar,sift three times,then add milk and well beaten eggs.
Dip fruit into batter and drop in boiling hot fat. like doughnuts.

Bananas for Fritters
Slice bananas lengthwise,cut into fourths,squeeze over them the juice of two lemons and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Let stand half an hour before dipping in batter.

**My granny used to make banana fritters very similar to this. So yummy and different.
They can be sprinkled with a little confectioners sugar or cinnamon/sugar blend after drained.
-------------
I can't figure out what I'll be making for dinner tonight yet..I'm thinking that I may make a vegetable and chicken stir fry served over brown rice...as I have a large baked chicken breast piece in the refrigerator and a large package of stir fry veggies in the freezer...that just sounds nice and yummy for something light and quick to toss up.
-----------
Well, better get started on the dinner preps here.
Then I'll have to attend to me chores in the backyard with the ducks.
Have a great evening.
Thanks for joining me in "blogland"

I had forgotten about banana fritters. My grandmother use to make them. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I hope everything went okay at the dentist. I hate to hear about your upcoming oral surgery. Pray that it will be smooth sailing for you.
Have a good one.

hey Laura, yes everything went just fine.
glad I could share that recipe with you.
oh, I think when I do get the oral surgery that everything will be fine as most of the wisdom teeth are through the gums part way, so it won't be too bad.
I appreciate your thoughts and prayrs and friendship.
