I celebrated Jesus’ birthday was a 9 mile run first thing. That’s the good thing about doing presents on Christmas eve – you have Christmas morning free to run!
I was thinking about doing my long run today (yeah, 9 miles isn’t even my long run – running marathons changes how you look at things), but decided to postpone it a few days. I wasn’t sure what time I was going to wake up with the 3 hour time difference.
When I got back from my run I snacked on a piece of Banana Bread.
This stuff is so good I asked Ben’s mom for the recipe.
1 3/4c flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 crushed walnuts (optional)
1 c ripe bananas, pureed (about 3)
Directions: Combine dry ingredients. Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs into butter mixture, beat. Add bananas and nuts. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes or until set.
Cream cheese frosting:
4 0z. whipped cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
