Today is a bit sadder-feeling than yesterday, so yanno… keeping on par down near the bottom of the well. But instead of whining and reflecting on that today, I figured I’d share a recipe that is a favorite of mine. That is, of course, James Beard’s recipe for banana bread:
I don’t know what it is about banana bread, but it’s definitely high up in the pantheon of comfort foods. And it’s not that hard to make, which is an added bonus. As my husband and daughter are both crazy about banana, a loaf goes pretty darn quickly, which is a nice ego stroke. And then there’s the pleasure of indulging in a slice oneself — bliss. So while I only had a nibble off of my husband’s slice last night before be, I’ll definitely treat myself to a nice hunk of my own later.
