Banana Bread Bake

Although I cook every day, it’s rare that a recipe actually makes it to the blog these days. I thought I’d share this banana bread bake, because it’s delicious!

My Mom brought us a loaf of banana bread she had made. We didn’t finish the whole loaf before it started getting stale. I couldn’t let it go to waste, so I put my trusty breakfast casserole recipe to use with banana bread instead of white/wheat bread. Banana Bread Bake Banana Bread Bake Banana Bread BakeRecipe:

1 loaf of banana bread, cubed
4 eggs
Splash of whole milk
1 tsp cinnamon

Spray a small glass baking dish. Cut up the loaf of banana bread into cubes. Line the bottom of the baking dish with bread cubes.

In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, splash of milk, and cinnamon.

Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until eggs are set.

** This can also be made the night before. Cover with foil and refrigerate. Place in a 350 oven until warm (about 15 minutes)

Enjoy!!

Fireside Five on Friday and 11 Month Photo Shoot!

So apparently the blog is now solely devoted to monthly Charlotte updates and Five on Fridays. We (meaning mostly Eric) have been doing DIY projects out the wazoo at home, but they just don’t quite make it to the blog these days. For now, here are a few things we’ve been up to…

Miss Charley girl turned 11 months on Wednesday! That’s just one month closer to a big one year old! I still can’t believe it…but I say that every month. Taking photos of her has never been more difficult. She doesn’t sit still! This month, she took her first steps (watch out world!), learned to clap, talks all the time, and got cuter…if that’s possible.

On to Five on Friday! These are from the last couple of months as a little update…

ONE– We have fox friends! They showed up on our PORCH of all places one Saturday morning. We had eaten breakfast out there and apparently left some food behind. They were brave enough to come up to the house and eat away. Barkley was at my parents house….he never would’ve let that happen. They’re just pups, so they’re seriously adorable! They come up near the house nearly every night and look for food. I get that we probably shouldn’t be excited that we have fox around (especially with a little cat running around), but for now, they’re causing no harm and they’re cute to see!Fireside Five on Friday and 11 Month Photo Shoot!

TWO– Yea, we’re in this stage…climbing on everything! It’s hilarious to watch her try to fit in tiny spaces. Fireside Five on Friday and 11 Month Photo Shoot!

It’s so amazing to watch these two grow up together. They’re really starting to play, rather than just stare at each other. Dinners together have never been so exciting!Fireside Five on Friday and 11 Month Photo Shoot!Fireside Five on Friday and 11 Month Photo Shoot!Fireside Five on Friday and 11 Month Photo Shoot!

 

FOUR– I have yet to do a post on our 4th of July vacation with our friends! This is one of the many photos from the weekend. We made so many great memories on that trip- I hope we make it a yearly tradition!!Fireside Five on Friday and 11 Month Photo Shoot!FIVE– Our garden is out.of.control. I’ve never seen cucumbers as big as we’re getting, and the tomatoes are coming in by the dozens. I guess that’s what happens when you have 27 tomato plants….woops. We’ve been giving produce away to people every day, so this is just part of the loot from two day’s harvest. Whew! Eric and I have enjoyed gardening since our first house in Sidney, so it’s a fun thing we love to keep going and learning from. Maybe Charley will have a green thumb from all the time she spends out there!
