    No problem! The BA's are my favorite and most reliable layer. Like I said earlier, eggs from the old girls are HUGE!

    Darn, 7 hrs 22 mins from me too.

    My kids would love that! Teeheehee (devilish giggling)

    I have some of your BA's also and they are great! Much nicer than the hatchery BA I used to have.

    The recipe is

    2 cups of diced strawberries
    6 bananas
    4 cups of flour
    (I used half barely and half pastry)
    2tsp salt
    2tsp baking powder
    1tbsp cinnamon
    1tsp ginger
    1tsp cloves
    1tsp nutmeg
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup veg shortening
    1/4 cup peanut butter
    2 eggs
    2 tbsp almond milk
    (or any milk)

    I mixed wet then dry then combined

    This is a large batch I had to make enough for other family members it can easily be cut in half.

    $775 --seats 47....might be able to talk them into a second stop along the way to pick up the rest of the crew. I didn't request a quote on their web site, just reporting information on their home page. L&S coaches out of Berne NY. That's $16.50 a person if we fill the bus. At $50 a person we only need 16 people. Rental is for one day only. Didn't price 2 day rental for an overnight.

    Edited to add: Would be about $50 a person for hotel room, double occupancy. (more if we go with an all suite hotel) Since it is over 7 hours and the bus driver can only drive 10 hours a day we would probably have to stay overnight. It CAN be done, but is there enough interest? I would image that the cost of the bus would be double if we used it two days in a row, but I haven't contacted them. Are we sure that Yankee trails isn't already running a bus trip there from the Capital District?

    What kills me is DW buys strawberries and they go moldy. Usually I cut them up and put them in the freezer before this happens. She always buys them and then doesn't eat them. [​IMG] There are some in there now. They are not sweet either. The same goes with Bananas.
