Happy Birthday, Johnny!

My brother Johnny's birthday was on Tuesday, so we decided to celebrate by having one of his favorite meals last night....tacos.  Johnny, my sister-in-law, Abby, and my cousins Karl, Claudine and Holly came for dinner.  It was a nice, low-key night with lots of laughs and delicious food.  Johnny is not one for birthday cake but is a huge fan of banana bread.  Holly won't eat anything called bread, so instead, we were calling it banana cake.  I think she was upset that there was no icing!  As soon as we sung Happy Birthday, she just started yelling, "I need a plate!  I need a plate!"  HILARIOUS!  I used Martha Stewart's recipe for banana bread but ommitted the walnuts since Abby is allergic to nuts...I think I like it better without the nuts.  Also, I added cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.  I like it a little spicier...

Banana "cake" all ready for singing. 

Can you see all of those delicious spices?

Holly was excited to sing!  She did a great job helping Johnny blow out the candles. 

The table all set for dinner...

Happy Birthday, Johnny.  Love you!

  1. The use of large cathedral replica watches here may be an attractive one, but this could also impact rolex watches store legibility when the hands partially obscure counters. The key change he helped implement was the amalgamation of historic replica watches sale skills from rolex watches in watches store with the modern production and testing facilities. I will like the rolex replica sale function operated from the crown. It looks awful just sticking out there. The strap gap and partly cut off numbers and the whole blandness of the look makes replica watches uk from me. The running seconds counter is found at buy rolex watches and features a blued and arrow tipped hand. Carpet is match the drapes. The breitling replica sale view is lovely. Not halo grade but interesting and finished to a degree that is well above average. I always appreciate contrasts colour and texture in watch movements and this replica watches sale caliber does well in that regard.
