Friday Happy

This was such a good week ~
a snow day smack in the middle ~ abigail's kinder teacher 'needed' me for an extra day more than 'my usual' (that Kinder class makes me so happy) ~ daddy was home every. single. night. for dinner ~ and to top it all off... a THREE DAY WEEKEND!

I love tea.  I drink herbal tea all day long from my favorite new tea cup.

Today I made Strawberry Banana Scones.  So easy... and they all tell me so good. 

1 banana
1 2/3 c. bascuit baking mix
1/4 c milk
1 egg, beaten
1 t almond extract
1/4 c sugar
3/4 c strawberries, diced

Line a 8x6 baking pan with aluminum foil; place unpeeled banana in pan.  Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Peel banana; mash in a small bowl.  In a separate bowl, combine baking mix, milk, egg, almond extract and sugar.  Fold in strawberries and banana.  Press dough evenly into the aluminum foil-lined baking pan.  Lift out foil; cut dough into 6 equal portions.  Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden.  Makes 6

Happy weekend ~
