When asked what my favorite food was as a kid, without hesitation I would reply, "banana bread." If ever I heard the eons-old greenish-yellow KitchenAid running, I would immediately stop whatever I was doing to help my mom make something delicious. Often it was banana bread.
I would pull up a chair and do what I could to "help." Usually, mom just had me mush the bananas. Sometimes I would beat the eggs for her. I always licked a beater. Whatever it was, I was content.
Tonight I made some banana bread for the first time by myself. Why it took me so long, I will never understand.
