Oh yeah, and this happened the other day. :)

Those of who have read the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer will recognise the name. Quite a few years ago I started reading the Artemis Fowl books, however I soon finished all the books that were published at the time, and then forgot about them. Recently, I started rereading the series.
One of the characters in the series is Butler, of the Butler family. In the story, the Butlers are the world’s best bodyguards and have been protecting the Fowl family for generations. One of the reasons for being the best bodyguards in the world is due to their training at Madame Ko’s Academy. Madame Ko and her academy play a background role in the books, but those who have passed her training are identified by a blue diamond tattoo.
For a bit of fun, I decided to create a logo for Madame Ko’s Academy.

This afternoon I was really really bored. I don’t get bored very often but today I was frustratingly bored. I also really fancied some banana loaf.
So, doing what all really-cool-and-exciting-19-year-old-guys do, I baked some banana loaf.
I’m so dull and domestic. It’s really tasty though.
Thats your banana bread? What recipe did you use?!
I’m not sure if that’s disgust or amazement. I’m going to
assume hope it’s the latter. Recipe was as follows:
- 125g Butter
- 190g SR Flour
- 150g Caster Sugar
- 1tsp. Vanilla Extract
- 1 Banana (mashed)
- 1 Egg
- 50ml Milk
Put the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a pan over a low/medium heat until the butter and sugar have melted. Take off the heat then add and mix the banana and egg. Add the flour and milk slowly, stirring.
150C (fan) for 30-45 minutes (until a knife comes out clean and the top is browned).
