Banana Bread

Good morning. Its a new week starting off nice and bright. The snow has melted away and the earth looks washed clean. I decided its time for me to clean my slate clean and start afresh too. I have made my most needed 'to do' list to get through this day. Cleaned my house where the laundry was looking like it will walk up to me. There is something about pattern and discipline I love, maybe its the fact that its so hard to get. But today is different I am loving it. Laundry is in the washer and carpets are cleaned soft and plumped. I feel like I am walking on air. With a song on my lips and happy flutter in my heart I am feeling generous. Here is a easy peezy recipe to get you into the zing of things.

The following recipe is an easy to make banana bread. There is no heavy beating once you have creamed your butter and sugar. Easy to do and gobbled down as easily. Its quite tasty. I have no flowery words to describe its taste. However, the matter of fact recipe is easy and if you have banana thats gone too dark that it will jump into the trash can on its own accord, salvage it. Peel off the black spotted banana peel and mash it up to whip up a quick bread. Now, you can use fresh bananas too it will work just fine. What I am trying to tell you is any reason is good engouh to bake this bread. Dig in it won't disappoint.

With wishes that you have a great day as I am having, I am signing off.
