Hello friends, happy almost-spring! It’s raining and gloomy here in Minnesota…but I’ll take it, because it’s 39 degrees and the mounds of snow are slowly getting washed away. I’m beginning to see the light!

How often do you have over-ripe bananas sitting on your counter? Is it just me? I swear it happens weekly, yet I continue to buy the same bunch that tends to go partially uneaten every time I do my shopping. Maybe it’s because I love a good challenge? Because Lord knows you can only make so much banana bread and so many peanut butter banana smoothies…it forces me to switch things up and get creative with those leftover sweeties.

I am thankful they love eggs in all shapes and forms but, as it is, we darn near need to buy a family of chickens to keep up with that whole deal.
