The instant pot cooked them fast but they made them so incredibly tender the meat mostly fell off the bone. I gotta futz with the settings and figure it out. Maybe they’ll just be something I make in the oven (or fry!)
This is why I had one of the walls in our bedroom painted black.
The afternoon light is magical.
The in between….when I have to give myself a pep talk to clean up.
I made our favorite banana bread during the holiday break and it didn’t last a full 24 hours in our house. We plowed through it in no time and I think it’s kinda light and fluffy so it’s very easy to go through. There’s nothing to slow you down. There’s no lingering. It’s just an EAT BANANA BREAD NOW and then cut another sliver until you realize there’s none left kind of situation.
So I put my thinking cap on and made what I like to call Hippy Banana Bread. I need a banana bread with bite! I need something hearty, something a little dense. Something with texture and bite!
This banana bread lasted more than 24 hours in our house. It’s been my breakfast for the past week and I looooooooove it. What makes it “hippy?” All the seeds (sunflower seeds & pumpkin seeds!), walnuts and dried cherries (that plump up after baking!).
You might find yourself buying extra bananas each week for this recipe. I’m already gathering ingredients for my next loaf…
