Did you receive this email? As I viewed these photographs, I couldn't help but think of the beauty, the power, the majesty, the brilliance, and especially the logic of all of God's creation. When our world overwhelms me, and I start to think that the problems I see in this world are just too big to overcome, I look at God's creation, and I know that nothing is too big for Him, and I am hopeful.
The following photographs were taken by Clark Little, who has published a book of photographs of waves.
My friend, Susie, gave me this recipe (Since I'm always mentioning Susie on my blog, ya'll probably think Susie is my only friend--you may be right!) She is one of my BFF, but she is also my friend who always has the best ideas, gives the best gifts, has a wonderful home, and has the best recipes. Those are just some of the reasons her name keeps coming up on my blog. (I do have another friend or two). I served this frozen salad for Easter dinner, and it was soooo easy and soooo delicious. The children ate theirs out of these "footed" silicone cups. (I did give most of the adults a regular silicone cup and some were served in ramekins. However, some of our adult family members preferred a cup with feet-you saw my sil on my post the other day, wearing Easter grass hair-you know he'd want a footed holder!)
EZ Frozen Banana Salad
3 large bananas-mashed
2/3 cups sour cream (regular or lite)
1/2 cupped chopped pecans
1 cup undrained crushed pineapple
2 Tblsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped cherries(optional)
1 Cool Whip-8 oz (regular or lite)
Mix all ingredients..stir in Cool Whip last..pour into 9 by 13 pyrex pan or cupcake holders..(Susie uses heavy duty paper cupcake holders-or doubles the regular holders; puts them in a muffin pan, and freezes them; after they freeze, she removes them from the muffin pan and puts them in a Ziploc bags in the freezer). These do not have to be thawed before eating, so you can take as many as you need out of the freezer when you serve your dinner.
I know I have only participated in Foodie Friday twice, and the other time I shared my recipe for Banana Pudding. I just want to tell ya'll that we do eat food at my house that doesn't have bananas in it!
EDITED TO ADD: Some of you have asked about these photos, so I did a little searching, and found his website. Not only does he take beautiful pictures, he is a pretty beautiful hunk himself! Here is the website, which features an interview with him on Good Morning America, along with more of his photos. http://www.clarklittlephotography.com/bio.php
