And by stupid, I mean crazy.
And by crazy, I mean that I made the perfect breakfast, dessert, snack, lunch, and dinner all in the same dish.
Dark chocolate chip banana bread.
My new favorite thing on the planet.
Raw honey, flaxseed oil, ground flaxseed, bananas..... and the best part of all.... dark chocolate chips.
I earmarked it for this morning. And I "earmarked" three bananas for the recipe. Kev is so good about eating up older looking fruit - so, if I need it for something I have to make it very clear. Which basically means that I told him to NOT eat the bananas. They were MINE!
To which, he just said "ok" and went on about his business. He has gotten used to my spastic food hoarding behavior and barely questions anything anymore.
I've decided that if I ever need to hide anything from him... I will just hide it in the kitchen inside some food.
And then knowing me... I will promptly forget about it until the end of time.
My memory blows these days.
Anyway, I literally dreamed about this stuff. And couldn't wait to get up and make it.
The chips were added in last..
The bread was finished baking in 40 minutes.
I can't even believe that this stuff is as healthy as it is. It would make the perfect breakfast. Or a pre-workout snack.
Or even a dessert. I'm telling you now that if you were invited to a party and were asked to bring dessert.... no one would EVER know that this stuff was organic, clean and filled with nutrition. EVER! It is just that good.
I ran to the garage with a bite on a fork for Kev. I fed it to him while he was working. He ran around in circles for hours. And then came inside and ate a whole piece.
And to think that I was THIS CLOSE to buying some ice cream for him at the grocery store yesterday.
I have a feeling I should keep always keep the ingredients on hand.... it is going to be requested a lot!
In other news...
Dinner last night was FAN-tabulous!
Kev actually "smoked" it on a cedar plank for about 25 minutes.
And then I served it with grilled asparagus and organic jasmine rice.
We also put some Trader Joe's hot and sweet mustard on top of the fish for a little added flavor.
Holy mess!! It was yummy!
I'm so thankful that I did not get my Dad's allergy to salmon!
Kev pretty much has our eating outside down to a science. He lights a Tiki candle and sets up two fans that blow in each direction. It keeps the flies away and makes for a comfortable atmosphere.
So, much so that we were lucky enough to have a visitor....
