Morning! What’s for breakfast?How about a slice of banana bread.We had a stash of overripe bananas in our freezer, so I literally whipped them up and folded them right into this King Arthur banana bread recipe. If you can’t tell yet, I’m obsessed with King Arthur. I even called their baking hotline the other day — what an amazing resource! There are actually TWO people named Mary on the hotline team. I think I just figured out my five-year plan.
Anyways. Back to the “bread,” which is actually closer to cake in my opinion…I was concerned about using half whole wheat flour, but it really gave the slices a nuttier, heartier texture and taste. I brought this batch into work, and it vanished pretty quickly!I’ve got to vanish pretty soon, to. But not before I share a run! Anthony and I met up with East Nasty this morning for the usual Wednesday outing.
We set out right at 6 am. Reflective gear was going strong in the dark trails.But eventually, the sun came out!I covered 4.5 with the group, 1.5 solo. After hill sprints yesterday, I was definitely dragging! Pretty sure Anthony and I were asleep for 90% of the run.Oh well. Guess I should try and wake up now? Maybe it’s time for coffee #2… with a slice of banana bread on the side.
- What time of day are you sleepiest (I’m pretty much asleep from 3 pm on)
- Banana “bread”: bread or cake? (It’s got basically all the same ingredients as a cake, minus the frosting. So that makes it cake, right?)
- Reflective vest, headlamp, or both?! (I usually go headlamp if running in the dark for more than 20 minutes)
