Ancestry DNA...Let's give it a try I’m not sure what to think yet. I figured it was on sale for $89. I was adopted and have always been curious, even more so after my son was born. I have no clue what my roots are. I found out a few years ago both my biological parents are deceased. I found out from my bio-fathers side. Right now Ancestry is running a deal on the DNA tests. Using my link you will get 10% off while I get $10. Check it out at AncestryDNA. I also made sure I used my Ebates, right now I got 7.5% back. So a little savings there. I’m thinking the whole process will take a few months, but I will definitely post the results. According to my bio-fathers side I am: Italian, French, Irish and Native American. So let’s put that to the test. So stay tuned for the results. Also let me know if you have ever done this before.

Weight Watchers: Banana Bread

Now who doesn’t love banana bread? I love it. This one is only 4 SP per serving. You have to remember a loaf is 18 servings. So pretty much a sliver. This is what I usually make when my bananas become overripe. I’m strange, I will eat my bananas with green on them still. Anyone else do this? Anyway, I will also freeze my bananas if I have to many. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I didn’t add the walnuts to mine. I’m not a nut person.
