When I got home from work last night, some sad bananas I had bought the week before caught my eye. Although I like them, I’m generally not inclined to reach for one as a snack and Eric was in Vegas all weekend so they just sat…untouched (his favorite, along with grapes). Knowing that he wouldn’t be eating four that evening before they turned, I was determined to make something out of them; I’m embarrassed to say that I couldn’t think of what to make on my own. As soon as I typed “banana” into Google, “banana bread” came up. Ashamed that I didn’t think of the most common banana recipe known to man on my own, I quickly forgot my feelings once I saw “peanut butter banana bread” pop up. I ended up using Joy the Baker’s recipe because not only does she make tasty things, she’s hilarious to boot.
Life lesson: when you encounter less than fresh bananas in life (see above picture), make banana bread.
