It’s a fact that I make banana recipes often in this home. Grumpy loves to take bananas in his lunch box. I think next to a pear (which is his very favorite raw fruit to eat) the banana takes a really close 2nd.

That being said, I always have bananas in the house that are getting overripe. I admit it. I’m not a banana eater unless it is in a recipe I’m making. My mom, on the other hand, will eat a banana every day and she swears that is what keeps her from getting leg cramps. I don’t get leg cramps (often, I have had them!) so I guess I don’t feel the need. I’d much rather eat my banana in a recipe like this one!

Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread

I made this loaf of bread thinking Grumpy would be home all week to help eat it up. Alas, a last minute change of plans took him out of town for his job and I was left to this bread all by my lonesome. I decided to take it into work to share so I didn’t fall guilty of eating only banana bread for 2 days!

Marbled Chocolate Banana BreadIts times like these when I really wish my family was closer. I could just feed them and be happy. Yeah. I’d be the mom/grandmother who is pushing food onto you all the time. Not a bad thing to be, right? I don’t think so. My Nanny was the same way and that is probably where I get that characteristic from!
