Look who stopped over for dessert; none other than, the one and Oliver Stone (Banana Bread)

A couple of days ago we received a a phone call from our location agent, who represents our home for film and television, regarding an Oliver Stone Movie. I know what your thinking, an agent for your house? Come on this is crazy! The location agent asked if they could send someone out, to come by and check my kitchen out for a Univeral Pictures Film. We said yes because its a nice way to let your house work for you. The location scout from Universal Pictures came out and took lots of pictures of my kitchen and said if the Producer likes the lay out, he will come back in the next week or two.

Well to my surprise, I received a call back from my location agent, the very next day! My location agent asked if Mr. Stone could stop by he was interested to see my kitchen, and if his vision for my kitchen, would work with his film. To be quiet honest I was thinking to myself is my house clean? It is the infamous Mr. Oliver Stone! OMG ! So after my silent freak out.  I went about my day. We already had scheduled to have a  procedure done on Miss J's ear and neck that day. She has a bump behind her ear that is very close to corotid artery that needs to be removed. The procedure goes very well and we come home and put Miss J right to bed. Thank goodness, she falls asleep right away!

Now I think to myself what can I make that will make my house small fabulous and delicious. You know the best way to a mans heart is through his stomach! I have 12 people from the studios coming to look at my kitchen, so what can I make that's moist and delicious? Then I remember I really needed to update my Banana Bread Recipe to only have just Oat Flour and this recipe makes a lot of bread. So that's what I will do!

Mr. Oliver Stone came in took many more pictures of my Kitchen with his staff and yes they loved my Banana Bread and he even took the left overs with him, after I had offered of course. Lets hope the old adage is true, because I know he loved my Banana Bread, lets just hope he like my kitchen too!  He was so sweet and even took this picture with Miss J .
