I have been on a banana KICK! lately.
Tonight, I made some sweet potato fries and breaded eggplant for dinner. And then some banana bread and banana oat cookies.
And I’m doing dishes and laundry.
Oh, and I just took my last final for the quarter. 1 full year of grad school – D-O-N-E!
Now, I’m sitting watching the Reds play some ball.
I went to a Reds game last week and my friend asked me why Drew Stubbs was my favorite player. I told him to just look at him. You can also take a look:
Anywho. On to more important things. Like baking. And bananas.
I used my own Banana Bread recipe, but once I put the batter into pans, I realized I forgot all the sugar. [And, by the way, I left in the middle of my making the bread to go to the store just to get the sugar!!!] I made it anyway, and I think it turned out just fine. Phew. Safe.
But these Banana Oat Cookies are something else. You should probably try to make them. I also messed up and used 1 full cup of mashed banana… I don’t know what was wrong with me. But once I realized I did that, I had to add more flour and oats, but I have no idea how much more I added. Oh brother.
School’s out and I’m losing my mind.
