Were you thinking ripe bananas? Did you forget about the charming American Goldfinch? How dare you! Well... I won't tell the Goldfinch and I'll let ya slide... THIS time...
It just so happens, thinking about ripe bananas makes a lot more sense then birds this morning, although both are logical thoughts. Like a lot of people, I buy bananas. I buy bananas and then I forget I bought bananas. After I forgot I purchased bananas, I freeze the (now over-ripe) bananas for a rainy day when I will make banana bread. Follow the logic? (I just tend to not make the banana...) This morning was no exception. I woke early, stumbled into the kitchen in search of, well, I forget, but I remember there was stumbling...
Anyway, where was I? Oh yes! Stumbling... I am not ashamed to admit there was also fumbling. Stumbling and fumbling go together like birds and bananas. They go together like herbs and laziness. They go together like insomnia and sunrises. Get the picture? The point is... What was my point? Did I make it yet? No? Oh wait! I have it! Stumbling and fumbling! (Stay with me, please.)
Ok, I fumbled about the counter, looking for coffee and stumbled across an entire bunch of organic bananas I purchased sometime last week, I think, I forget. I just know they were not spotted and striped when I purchased them. This morning I offer a recipe for Banana Bread! Yay! I am super productive! Aren't you impressed? Right now, as I type, I am multi-tasking. I am thinking about the recipe I made up, ignoring the Banana Bread timer AND having a hot flash; ALL while blogging! If that is not multi-tasking, what is?
On my way to my morning workout, I threw together two banana breads based off a Huffington Post recipe. I input 'banana bread recipes with yogurt and oil' into the "search" tab and liked the sound of the recipe, well, sort of anyway. Here is the link:
You will find my version of this recipe on my Recipes page. I hope you give the recipe a try. Since my freezer is mostly comprised of frozen bananas, I am out of room!
