Today is Day 3 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
I am not usually obsessed with food, but there are a couple of things lately that I have been craving – French raisin toast coated in rolled oats with maple syrup (I had them this morning and just did not remember to photograph them – hmmmm) and the loaded banana muffins my son has been making.
I can still remember cooking with him when he was young and filling a notebook with recipes he wanted to make. Once, years later, I lost a recipe and he still had the notebook and could email it to me.
Now, he is cooking for us, living with us as my husband recovers from surgery.
I buy bananas with every intention of eating them before they become too ripe. Of course, then along comes the muffin-maker, to turn those over-ripe bananas into “Bananaberry Bombs” (from the wonderful cookbook “Looneyspoons” by Janet and Greta Podleski – it is worth a read just for the recipe titles, most recipes I’ve tried have been amazing)
Whether cooked with blueberries (as these were) or cranberries, they are delicious and filled with healthy goodness (wheat germ, rolled oats, whole wheat flour). I think I’ll just go make a cup of tea and indulge in a muffin – or two.
