Ok, so I may have a slight obsession with bananas.
Along with cooking them until they are as caramelized and delicious as can be.
Yes, it was just a week ago that I told you guys about this Chocolate Avocado Mousse with Caramelized Bananas. And man, remembering back that had coconut in it too. Oops.
But, I just cannot help it. I mean, the last few weeks have just been so much meat. It has left me craving greens, hearty breads and apparently coconut, bananas and chocolate.
To me, this is winter comfort food. Especially a warm, moist, chocolatey slice with a glass of cold milk. Yeah, that is just perfect.
I kind of feel like this Tuesday needs some chocolate chunk banana bread. Is it me or does it feel like this week is moving way to slow? Is it really only Tuesday?
Wait, actually the days are going by in record speed, but what I mean is that Friday could not come fast enough.
And also, some organization.
Moving makes the house look like a war zone and it is starting to stress me out. We have to be completely out of the old house by the 15th. That means all cleaned up and looking good. So at least then we can concentrate on getting the new place organized. Great house, but not enough storage! Where to put everything – yikes!
And that is about all the words I have for you today.
I have started writing these next four paragraphs at least ten times and erased single every word.
I do have things to say and tell. Things like how my weirdo brother Brendan is the star in the new McDonald’s commercial or how my thirteen and eighteen year old brothers are currently living it up on five course meals in Europe at the Burton European Open (snowboard competition) being chaperoned by the Red Bull and Burton team managers. I could also go on and on about the fact that my house is in a state of complete disaster or on a more positive and exciting note, I could be sharing with you all my ideas about the Barn. Or I could just simply let you know how you should really try this banana bread, because not only is it delicious, it’s really quite healthy – but nothing is flowing. Like nothing.
And as shown in the paragraph above, my proper use of the English language is not up to par either.
So for today I am just going to leave you with the concept that you really should make this bread. It is quick, easy and awesome, and the bread is so moist with incredible flavor. Roasted bananas are where it is at. Especially when combined with chocolate and coconut.
Ooey gooey banana bread can fix almost anything.
There, I am done!
