Baked Bananas

Is that a recipe or how I feel?

This is from the Paleo Diet for Athletes by Loren Cordain and Joe Friel.
4 bananas
1/4 c. olive oil
Juice and grated rind of 2 lemons
1 T. vanilla
1 t. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Cut bananas in half (lengthwise) and place cut side down in baking dish greased with the oil. Drizzle with the lemon juice and vanilla, then sprinkle with lemon rind and cinnamon. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

I'm happy to report that the big guy is doing much better! He's going up and down (down is better than up) on his own and he has his old appetite back! We've backed off on the prednisone quite a bit - down to 5mg every other day. We'll compare his "on" to "off" days and then probably get his levels tested in a few weeks if the low dose seems to be OK.

Well, I haven't been too agressive with my fundraising this year (there is still plenty of time to donate!) but we had an awesome fundraiser for the team on Saturday - a Texas Hold'em tournament we called Casino Royale. We raised $2200 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! It was a lot of fun. Still getting the house back together from the event!
