Banana Nut Bread

Happy Friday! Gosh can you guys believe that this time next week we will be in a food coma courtesy of Turkey Day? And then there’s only a month till Christmas! And then it’s 2013! I seriously cannot grasp how quickly this year has flown by. It kinda freaks me out to be honest.

I went all out of my box today and decided to change up my breakfast. My body was craving 2 things: cheese and eggs!IMG_2797 ww bread, 2 eggs, 1 slice provolone cheese and a naner

Naners are my go to morning fruit. In the summer I love having berries in the morning too, but my go-to no-fail fruit is always a banana!

Lunch was courtesy of a pre-made meal. This is one of my favorite pre-made meals out there, and I try to grab them whenever they are on sale!

With warmer weather fading away (FINALLY!) I decided to use my last bit of ground turkey to make us our final homemade burgers of the year.

And since the day was overcast and gloomy, and I had some naners going bad, I decided to put my apron on and make some of my favorite quick bread! With the holidays right around the corner, I am trying to narrow down by top 3 favorite breads to make for friends for the holidays.

Its a bit crumbly because Ms. Impatient right here didn’t want to wait for it to cool before I sliced into it. I advise you to wait a little. Unless of course you don’t mind some crumbly banana bread!

    Banana bread makes me weak in the knees – it’s definitely my favorite kind of quick bread to make. And even more so because the smell that fills my kitchen while it’s baking has got to be one of the most comforting things ever, especially if I’ve had a bad day or the weather is particularly cold and nasty. Gah! I think it’s time to do some baking this weekend… now if only my bananas would make it to that perfect stage of ripeness… I tend to go through them kind of fast 😳

    Omg those potato fries look amazing. I like banana bread without nuts. I am not a big nut fan in my breads, I like nuts on their own. However, I’m not a walnut fan and that seems to be the only nut in breads! HA!
