Bananas Foster Bread, kind of

So, I've crossed a few things off my TO DO lists and this is one of them: Bananas Foster Banana Bread from the Brown Eyed Baker. I did leave out one main ingredient though, the rum. I know, I know! The best part, right? Well, I tried to get some, but it was Sunday and the liquor store was closed! Stupid puritanical values bleeding into state policies, ruining my banana bread. Well, actually, I can't really say it ruined the bread, it's still REALLY, really good, but it could have been so much better! Another thing I would change, that the boyfriend suggested, is putting some of the walnuts from the yummy, crumbly top into the actual batter, to give the bread itself some texture. But other than that, the bread was super moist and flavorful, not gummy in the middle, with just the right amount of banana flavor. Mmmm. I think I'll go have another piece right now.

Some other things I can cross off my TO DO lists:
-pendant light (pictures to come)
-egg in a basket (sorry, no pictures, didn't last long :)
-light in the kitchen (pictures to come) seems like I've done a lot more...
-OH! The portfolio site, that was a big one, but you knew about that :)

I guess I still have a lot more to do. Stay tuned!

The bread looks great, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! And your boyfriend has a great suggestion - the walnuts would be wonderful inside. Boyfriends always have great insight :)
