"Sunday" wrote Mr Kipling "and time for banana bread"

So we - the FB and I, made some. The FB has been going through a phase recently of asking for a banana, promising to eat it and then taking either a bite or NO bites at all out of it and then dumping it. Each time he does it I think of you guys in Australia with your $100 per banana and wince. As the unused bananas go into the fridge I thought we could make some banana bread out of it. And we did. And it was lovely. Recipe came from my current favourite cook book - Apples for Jam, and was incredibly easy. Especially if you have a Kenwood (thanks MIL!).

Went to bed last night with a splitting headache, feeling sick and very cold; and with the designs of two bead necklaces spiralling around my brain. When I've got the time, and money I'll drag the FB to the beadshop in Covent Garden and start working on it. One of the designs is in green all different shades, and the other can only be described as a rainbow. It could be tacky or it could be gloriously gorgeous.

You don't say, "Think of all the poor little Australian children who have never even tasted bananas!" ?????

No bananas in Australia? Now I do feel like a stupid American, also one who can't spell -- keep mistyping words today. Ugh. Molly's here and she brought chocolate banana bread - delicious. Should get her to post the recipe.

I caved and bought four bananas the other day because we'd been craving them for so long.

Cost me $9.90

Yikes. I just keep thinking this too shall pass, this too shall pass, this too shall ...

We were on a '4 bananas a week' limit, but now i've stopped buying them altogether. We've had a few wasted here lately, and mummy is not impressed.

Even the banana smoothies have been underappreciated. Bah !
