Just as we hoped, it was a 'calm' and a quiet weekend. For the dogs, the weekend was all about walks and throwing the frisbee.
For me, the most exciting part was baking, and lots of it. At the grocery store on Thursday I really took advantage of the ten-cents-a-pound for ripe bananas. And even though I gave part of them to a co-worker, I still had plenty left for us. I made five loaves of banana bread, two different kinds of banana muffins, and a snack cake. I've decided that I really love when a dessert is called a snack, because I think that implies that it's just that, a snack, and you can eat as much as you want....Because it's a snack....Right??
But banana bread is another one of my 'comfort foods.' Growing up I used to love when my Mom made banana bread. My brothers and I consumed it like we hadn't eaten in days and it seemed like it would only last about five minutes. Maybe it did, because we were like vultures!
And then this morning I have to admit that I made banana bread into french toast--Okay, maybe that was too much, but it was really pretty good, even if it wasn't all that healthy. Which is why it was a good thing that the dogs and I went for plenty of walks and played frisbee.
