caramelized banana bread

The holidays are here,
and while excited, I am am feeling just a tad

There’s shopping, wrapping, baking,
decorating, card writing, and meal planning.

On top of that Stella’s birthday is two weeks before Christmas,
and Charlie’s is two weeks after.

Throw in a couple school projects, 3 b ball games a week, and a choir performance,
and I’m beginning to feel like the Grinch.

There just doesn’t seem to be enough time to get it all done.

To help with a few of my mommy chores, I look for recipes that multi-task.

dinners that provide leftovers for lunch
granola that is great for breakfast or lunch
and this banana bread

it is great toasted for breakfast
the kids love it in their lunch boxes for a snack,
and the caramelized bananas with brown butter glaze make it work even for dessert
