Rotisserie Chicken Dinner from Pinterest was delicious and easy!

with Banana Bars for desert as well as delivering a tray full of bars to Ben’s school for the teachers dinner.  Parent/Teacher conferences were Wednesday night.  A lady, Carolyn T., I use to work with gave me this recipe and I’ve never found a more delicious banana bar recipe.  The sour cream is the secret.

Frosted Banana Bars

Cream together in large bowl:  1/2 cup softened butter and 1 1/2 cup sugar.  Add 2 eggs, 1 cup sour cream, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.  In separate bowl whisk together 2 cups flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, and 1/4 tsp. salt.  Gradually add to butter mixture.  Stir in 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed. Spread into greased 15x10x1 inch baking pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes.  Cool completely then frost with cream cheese frosting.  Store in refrigerator.

I also tried a recipe from Pinterest for leftover mashed potato soup that was good!  I added bacon bits and 1/2 tsp. Celery Salt to this recipe.  It was soooo creamy and thick!
