Banana Bread

I like to bake with Eddie, but I like even more to bake alone.

When I am alone I can have a hankering for something and whip it up without needing it to be an “activity”.

On snow days home from school, I LOVE to bake.

The snowed in feeling sort of begs for a baked good to be in oven, am I right?

So I had these sitting on the counter yelling at me about how brown they were getting.

And I was all…FINE, BROWN BANANAS!

So I busted out the recipe that my mom always used to make when she had shouty brown bananas on her counter.

(Notice her recipe calls for oleo? Yeah, I don’t use “oleo” or margarine.  I use REAL butter! Yum! And yes, those eggs? From chickens a teacher-colleague of mine owns. No bleaches or anything in those!)

So while the boys were away, I made the house smell good.

And made sure we had a yummy snack for after work/daycare.
