"The fight for freedom is God's fight.
So when a man stands for freedom he stands with God.
And as long as he stands for freedom he stands with God.
And were he to stand alone he would still stand with God.
A man will be eternally vindicated and rewarded for his stand for freedom."
--Ezra Taft Benson

Family Meal

Since my husband has been away our teenage boy has informed me that he has lost ten pounds.   I asked him how he has lost that much weight he said, "because you have been slacking on making home cooked meals and I am withering away."   Don't worry, my son is not withering away.  I don't even think he has lost a pound.  But my husband on the other hand probably has.  He doesn't complain much about the food.  But he isn't one to complain.  He told me that as soon as he gets home he wants some Bundy beef and some yummy banana bread.  I can not wait until the day that our family will be able to sit around the dinner table and have a family meal together.  It will be a  meal to remember.  Below is a recipe for Banana Bread.  This recipe is how I convinced Dave Bundy into marrying me.


2 cups flour                                         1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking powder          3 medium-large ripe bananas (1 cup mashed)

½ teaspoon salt                                ½ cup sour cream

1 cup sugar                                         ½ cup chopped nuts

2 eggs

Turn the oven to 325.  Grease a 5-by 9-inch pan, with spray or crisco.  Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl.  In a large bowl, cream the butter using an electric mixer.  Gradually add the sugar, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Next, add the vanilla extract and blend briefly.  Set both bowls aside.  Peel the bananas and place them in a blender and mash them.  Next add the sour cream to the bananas and stir.  Then take the bananas mixture and add to the butter mixture.  Mix well then blend in the flour.  Then add the chopped nuts and stir well.  Dump all of the ingredients into the baking pan and cook for one hour. 

 This Best EVER Banana Bread recipe is the only one you will ever need! It’s easy, flavorful, and will quickly become your new favorite.
