make banana bread!
Today was a rainy, just plain gloomy day! Until the smell of banana bread started to fill up the kitchen! If you have really brown bananas that are going nowhere but the trash, mash them up and make this moist, dense and most delicious quick bread. You can't miss. I didn't even burn it. This time.

3 ripe bananas, well mashed
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (or more!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan. Mix the bananas and eggs together in a large bowl. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt and soda. Add the walnuts and stir to blend. Put the batter in the pan and bake for an hour. Remove from the pan and cool on a rack.
Sometimes I add a couple splashes of Myer’s Rum (Dark rum)
