So olivia and the girls were gone all last week. I'm sure you can imagine the craziness that has been going on at this house without adult or female supervision. I know what you are thinking: maybe copious amounts of beer, shots, motorcycle riding, video gaming, etc. Nope...baked goods.
There were some bananas I forgot about on the window sill that were too ripe to eat. They were, however, ripe enough for banana bread. I was determined not to let them go to waste. I've never baked anything from scratch in my life but I had ingredients, an oven and the internet so how hard could it be? I googled recipes, picked the first one, followed directions and in one hour I had two loaves of excellent banana bread.
Don't think for a minute though that this was all I did this week. There was also laundry, dishes, vacuuming, cleaning, etc. I think my domestication is complete. In all honesty, routine is just really hard to break so staying busy was the only way to stay sane in a house that had (temporarily) lost it's pulse. Three girls are scheduled for arrival later today and I am ready to see them. I could also use some help enjoying the fruits of my labor.
