The bananas went bad. Whenever this happens I keep them for a few days with good intentions of making banana bread. Mind you, I have never made banana bread before. Then I end up throwing the nasty brown bananas in the garbage. I cringe as I'm doing it, like I do when any food goes in the garbage.
Today was different. I mashed up those overripe bananas, got on line for a recipe, and I made banana bread. It was the best banana bread I've tasted in a while. I got the recipe here. It was so much easier to make than I was imagining. I added some chocolate chips that were not part of the recipe.
