Super Simple Banana Bread

Evelyn has been asking for Banana Bread daily for the past 2 weeks so finally I decided to make some.
This recipe is super simple and you probably already have everything in your pantry. It is all prepared in one big bowl and does not require a mixer.  Doesn't get much easier than that in my opinion.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 Minutes

Makes 1 loaf

3 Very Riped Banana's
1/3 Cup melted butter
1/2 Cup Sugar (less depending on how sweet you would like it)
1 Egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
a pinch of salt
1 1/2 Cup of all purpose flour
(optional- 1/4 Cup nuts or mini chocolate chips)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter or spray a 4x8 loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl mash the bananas really well with a fork, make them nice and smooth.  Next stir in the melted butter and add in the boing soda, salt, sugar, egg and vanilla.
Then mix in the flour.  When everything is mixed together, fold in the optional nuts or chocolate chips, if you choose to use any.

Poor the batter in the loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes checking to see if a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
Let it cool completely and then slice it up to serve.

Office Gallery Wall

I am slowly working on my office space and I have finally finished the picture gallery wall.  I really like the way it turned out.  I love pictures and these cute Instagram prints made for an easy way to cover the wall.

I printed them from Walgreens.  You can go to the photo area online and link your pictures from Instagram so it makes it really easy.  The wooden head I bought from Target and painted it.

I also used a ruler to space out the pictures and hung them with double sided tape.  So far they have stayed up.

A very easy project and a very easy way to display some really cute pictures.
