Fabulous Food Friday!

Hi all! Hope everyone is having a great Friday. Near where my hubby works is a food pantry where they help those that don't have money to buy groceries. They received two tractor trailer loads of bananas this week and there was so many bananas they knew they wouldn't be able to use them all before they went bad! So they came to my hubby's plant with a truck load of them for the employees to take home. Needless to say, we are now overrun with bananas! So guess what I'm making this weekend ~ yep, banana bread!! LOL!! I have a wonderful recipe for Banana Apple Bread that my family just loves. Thought I'd share it with you today.

Banana Apple Bread

1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup chopped apples
1/2 cup mashed banana
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans in a bowl. Combine eggs, vegetable oil, apple, banana and vanilla in a bowl, mix well. Add the flour mixture and mix well. Pour into a nonstick 5 X 9 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes or until the loaf tests done. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

I am so glad it's Friday!! It's been a rough week at work for me this week and I am ready for a break! I don't have much on the agenda for this weekend. Just the usual house cleaning, laundry, hoping to finish up some craft projects I've got in the works, and that's about it. Oh yea, and making this delicious banana bread! LOL!

Well, that's about all I have for now. I hope everyone has a great Friday. Stay safe and be sure to be thankful for and take joy in the little things. Sometimes that's all we can do.

Until next time. . .
