Sometimes there is just no way around it. Today was one of those days, thankfully. We had friends over who knew it too… So, this was a good day for a lot of excellent monkey business. I am thankful for days when God’s provision and goodness comes to my home in the form of friendship. And He seems to know just when I need it.
When I found out our friends were coming over I decided to practice something new on them. It’s important to know that when these dear people come to our house, or we go to theirs, it is not unusual to experience fun and laughter and food, not necessarily in that order; and if they come to my home, there is usually (always) dessert. This is not shocking, I know.
Well, monkey business, should always involve cake. I just made my mind up about this today. In this case, it is especially true because the new recipe I made was a banana cake, with brown butter frosting that was absolutely divine, possibly Heaven sent. And I will share it with you, because you need monkey business at your house, too. I’m sure of it.
(I feel confident my friend, Reina will be absolutely thrilled I am sharing this photo with all of you… )
