Five little things I loved this week:

Buttermilk Banana Bread

I bruised my ego yesterday, along with injuring my wrist, after a ridiculous fall on my bike. Turns out clipless pedals are trickier than I thought (nothing like spin class, ha!). My first go with them on my bike resulted in an embarrassing fall. I almost wish I had a fantastic story to tell when we went to the ER last night. But the good news is that is just a sprain. And I baked two loaves of Buttermilk Banana Bread before it all happened. It was so nice to have this old favorite for breakfast this morning.

Being a Rightie

My left arm is in a brace, so I’m thankful to still have my dominant hand! Though I have to say, I’m figuring out some fancy typing!

Last Day of School

Woo hoo! School is out and summer days beckon! What’s not to love? I’m really looking forward to a lot of QT with my kids in the coming weeks.

This made my week. Amanda, from the beautiful blog i am baker, always seems to find the right words. When it came to her thoughts on the recent Cheerios commercial controversy, her Cheerios Cake touched me keenly. If you haven’t seen the commercial, head on over to Amanda’s. She explains is perfectly.

      Thank you, Laura! It was a nice break from the usual this morning, that’s for sure :) Always nice to indulge in something comforting.

    Ouch…..! Sorry to hear you hurt yourself falling from a bike… Yes it’s quite different from a spinning bike. Lol. I have to say I hate wearing clips outdoors…. It’s just scary to be locked in when you have to do an emergency stop. I like my outdoor bike without the clips….:) this cake looks pretty awesome too. Get well soon!

    I feel your pain! For some reason I’ve always been awkward on bikes – unfortunately my injuries were mostly the result of that intrusive bar running just below the seat… o_O (Oh, the joys of being short!) :D

    I’m glad you’re ok, and that you can still bake!! *Love* the adorbs Cheerio cake!
