Banana Bread and Kesha’s Timber

on March 19, 2014

I was cooking a batch of banana bread french toast (I make a bunch at a time to freeze. Then for breakfasts I can pop a few in the toaster, add a bit of fruit and yogurt and voila perfect for mornings I’m tired but want the kids to eat well without much cooking on my part) As I was making the last pan of them Kesha’s Timber came on the radio. There’s part that says “swing your partner round and round” and I couldn’t resist, so I grabbed Mr. C and we started to dosado round the living room. As our laughter rang through the house, Miss. G quickly rushed towards us, arms outstretched wanting to join, wanting to be a part of the laughter and love and fun being had. Of course we smiled and took her little hands in ours and started to simply dance in odd disjointed circles about the living room. Mr. N excitedly asked if he could join in as well, and so our circle got larger again, and we all laughed as we danced gleefully about the living room, our hands as intertwined as our hearts and our energies.

The last pan full of banana bread french toast were darker than I normally cook them as I’d left them on in my haste to enjoy the moment with the wee ones. I think if anything they’ll taste even better than usual for all the love that filled the house as they were left unattended on the stove, and if they don’t well that’s what maple syrup is for 😉

 

P.S Banana bread french toast is just using an epic banana bread recipe like this one and substituting slices of it for plain bread to make french toast, an easy twist to a family favorite.

    Sounds like a wonderful morning of fun and love and yummy food.
    What better way to start the day?

    I wonder if my gf banana bread recipe would work as french toast (not my recipe, but definitely a fave). I’ll have to give it a go. http://nourishingflourishing.com/2011/04/gluten-free-bomb-banana-bread-aka-everyones-favorite-thing-i-make/

    • It really was wonderful!
      I don’t see why it wouldn’t work just as well! A friend of mine told me tonight that she uses gf zucchini bread for french toast and it works wonderfully for her. When you give it a go, please let me know how it turns out 🙂
