When Life Gives You Brown Bananas...
...you make banana bread! Monday night I was on a cooking kick. After my quick out and back trip to San Francisco, Jess's wedding on Friday, then followed by a weekend of more or less purposeful laziness, it was time to assess the food situation, starting with the produce. David and I both eat lots of fruits and veggies throughout the week but when I am away David tends to fall into the fast food trap (he admitted to a KFC run last night). This latest bout of his eating out was evident by the pair of brown bananas sitting on our baker's rack.
Since I literally cringe throwing away food (I really need to cancel my membership to the clean plate club), I decided to make some chocolate chip banana bread as a special treat for David. I've made this before and David has always loved it. I use the banana bread recipe from the America's Test Kitchen Baking Book but any basic bread recipe will do. It turned out great and David even had 2 slices Monday night straight out of the oven. A perfect treat for a rainy Monday night.
