Well, It’s been approximately forever since I’ve posted. I sort of knew that would happen when I started, just because I have a long history of empty journals and diaries in my past. I’m a terrible photographer for the same reason. . . I’m too busy actually doing the thing that I’m doing to stop and take pictures/write about it/whatever. Case in point, I had a Halloween party last weekend, and it was really fun, but I didn’t think to take ONE picture the whole time. You’ll all just have to imagine what me in an owl costume must have looked like. 🙂
However, I’m determined not to let the embarrassment of failing to be a “good blogger” get me down, so here we go again.
Lest you think I’ve been a total flake, I can offer some proof to the contrary:
Before I go, I thought I’d share one of my absolute favorite recipes. I discovered 5 (five!) bananas in the back of my freezer. Pretty often, I can’t get through all the bananas I purchase before that last one goes over the edge into the “too ripe” category. Not wanting to be wasteful, I usually throw it in the freezer to save for making banana bread (too ripe, mushy bananas make the BEST bread!) I’ve tried a lot of recipes since I moved out of my parents’ house, since I made the mistake of not writing down the one my mother uses. However, nothing comes close, in my humble opinion, so I finally had her email me the real deal just a few months ago. It’s actually a recipe for zucchini bread from an old church recipe book she’s had for ages, but substituting bananas for the zucchini works just fine. I usually just take the bananas out of the freezer and put them in a bowl to thaw. Once they’re mostly defrosted, you can just sort of just squish them right out of the peel, and finish mashing them with a fork. Also, I love it with walnuts, but it’s good without, too. Seriously, try it!
