Bananas Foster Hand Pies


Bananas Fosters Hand Pies…but first, a story!

I feel like I’ve been gone forever but what happened was…I got the flu last week and it hit me so hard I could barely move. It was the absolute worst but luckily I was able to take a few days to recover. I always think getting sick might be kinda relaxing and peaceful but honestly it’s horrible. The pain and body aches and chills are so not worth the “time off.” It also induced some serious anxiety because I fell so behind on work so now I’m fervently trying to keep up.

That halftime show was one of the most boring things my eyes have ever experienced. I almost fell asleep but somehow I made it through. One thing that dramatically helped were these animal-style cheeseburger empanadas. They were unreal.

I might have to try and recreate them soon!

I’m currently plotting to have a yard sale and am simultaneously excited and nervous to let so many things go. Will I regret selling all my things? I barely use them so hopefully not. I actually love getting rid of things so hopefully I’ll be ok. I’m guessing I won’t miss them and will appreciate the extra pocket money it will provide me.
