Banana bread was the first recipe I learned by heart. At 5 years old, from my grandmother.  After reading this, I asked my boyfriend if he liked nanner bread, he said "LOVE IT!" so I'm making some this weekend.

I love banana bread, muffins, cake or what-have-you.  Love them all.  In fact I am hungry right now.  son John is making dinner tonight.   It was 22 degrees F. when I got up to feed my dogs this morning.  Winter is coming. winter is coming.  Although it is so bright and sunny now, the temps aren't very warm.  Time to head to Africa.Smile
