National Banana Bread Day

"Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts!" - James Beard

It's National Banana Bread Day!

Boy, what I wouldn't do for a piece of good banana bread. Grilled with some butter or even Nutella (if I'm feeling extra naughty)? Mmm. Mmm. Mmm!

I never make banana bread because I eat the entire loaf and forget to share with others, thus making me a fatty-fatty. And I can't promise that won't happen again today.

(Fun fact: the stringy leech-like bits that come off a banana after you've peeled it are called "phloem bundles"!)

Happy National Banana Bread Day!
