Bits & Balderdash - 3/21/11

Check...Check...Check - Hey is this thing on???

Haven't made a lot of time for blogging lately.

The story is the same for everyone, more stuff to do than time to do it!

#1. Cranberry/Banana Muffins

3 or 4 ripe bananas
1/3 c melted butter
1 c sugar
2 6 oz. packages of dried cranberries
1 egg beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
1 1/2 c flour

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, smash bananas. Mix all the ingredients in order, flour last. Mix together with fork. Pour mixture into greased muffin pan. Bake @ 350 for 20 min. or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Just thought you might like that one!

#2. New Favorite Movie "UP" -

Carl Fredrickson, a little boy and a dreamer who idolizes the adventurer Charles Munts. When he meets Ellie, who also worships Munts, they become close friends. However Charles Munts falls into disgrace, accused of forging the skeleton of the monster of Paradise Falls. He travels in his blimp to South America to bring the monster back alive but is never seen again. Eventually he Carl grows up and marries Ellie. They promise each other that they would travel together to Paradise Falls and build a house there. Many years later, Ellie dies and Carl, who's lonely, refuses to move from their house despite the offers of the owner of a construction company. When Carl accidentally hits a worker that damaged his mailbox, he is sentenced to move to a retirement home. However, he uses many balloons to float his house in order to travel to Paradise Falls. Adventure ensues.

I really like this even though it is a bit sad in the beginning. I just bought the soundtrack which has a really cool back-story in and of itself. Check it out, I think you will like it!
