Looks like we got over a foot of snow, but it's hard to tell with the drifts! Glen got his car shoveled out and I'll have to finish shoveling mine out of the garage tomorrow. Fun, fun!
This was our driveway around 2:30 p.m. when he shoveled a path to the mailbox and decided it was too mucky to continue.
For winter comfort food, I made my version of Yellowman's Banana Lime Bread from Sundays at Moosewood:
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup grated coconut
2 cups white flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray (if it's not already non-stick :o). In a large mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter. Stir in the egg, bananas, milk, and lime juice. Add the salt, ginger, and coconut and mix well. Measure the flour and baking powder into a separate bowl. Sift the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until smooth. Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for one hour, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the bread for about 10 minutes before removing from the pan. (There's a rum glaze that goes with this, but I'm too lazy to make it, and this is sweet and moist enough without it.)
