How to convert a tie into a bowtie

Clever, right? I have a son and I actually have to teach myself to tie a regular tie and all the variations so I can teach him.  How will I do this?  Through the help of Youtube. While searching on how to tie a tie,  I came across the below instructional videos. Silly me and I'm sure I'm not alone, I thought you only could purchase bow-ties that way.  In other words, I did not know there was a way to convert a regular tie to one.  Did you know about this?  

This first video demonstrates how to convert a tie while around his neck.  The second video shows how to convert the tie on a table. I  thought the idea of converting a regular tie to a bowtie was interesting.
 Both videos are very informative and  to be able to convert a regular tie is a money saver.

Teach your child a life skill today ;-)

Rosie's Banana Muffins

I  had some over ripe bananas and took to the internet to see what I could make fast and that was easy.  I came across "I heart recipes". Rosie's recipe was all of the above. I had everything needed on hand. Having the ingredients already was one of the criteria in selecting the recipe as I didn't want to have to run out to the grocery store.  I also, selected Rosie's recipe due to the picture of the muffins and she had a video to show her preparing the muffins.

The muffins came out lovely and they were just as Rosie said, "Easy Moist Banana Muffins" and I'll add delicious! You noticed in the picture one is missing.  Well, I had to sample one prior to recommending the recipe.  I watched a few more of "I heart recipes" and have added items to my grocery list so, I'll have the items on hand.  If, I have to run out for an ingredient chances are I will not make that dish then.  I'm the only one that way?

Checkout "I heart recipes" and tell her "lady" sent you.

Go make muffins ;-)
