cozy sunday :: banana bread recipe

we started off our day by taking summit on a ride and then letting him run. he loves to run and we love to let him run.

soup on the stove always makes my sunday cozy. my daughter hates soup. she claims soup does not make a meal it is what we have before the meal. so i try to bake on soup days….it softens her for the soup blow.

i am a genius because she was so excited about licking the bowl clean she did not even mention the soup.

i doubled the recipe for two loaves and it worked out perfectly.
