Manic Monday and Banana Pineapple Bread

Thank you Monday for kicking my behind! Dear Parents, if your child needs a back to school note for lunch, bathroom privileges, medication, physicals, or all of the above...PLEASE do not wait until the week that school begins to get these filled out! Thank you kindly, the nurse who has to do this for you! O M G it's been a wild day....can you tell?? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my job, but its no fun being swamped at the last minute or having a Mom being angry because you cannot have what she needs done immediately. And how was your Monday???

On a brighter note, had a really nice weekend. Dinner with friends Saturday night and dinner with family last night....and my little man is learning SO much. Last night he learned how to blow a duck call! Its a southern thing...some of you will understand! Now we are working on teaching him to say "WHO DAT"!!!! Speaking of WHO DAT...we enjoyed watching our Saints take the field last night and winning! AND we got to see Drew Brees on the sidelines dancing to "Play that Funky Music" as he munched on sunflower seeds! It was SO classic...L.O.V.E.D. IT!

Cannot wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for our Saints!!!

Here is a great recipe for a soft, moist homemade quick bread with banana and pineapple...yes pineapple!
Don't hate until you try it!!

Banana Pineapple Bread

Yield: 2 loaves
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups mashed bananas (about 4 medium bananas)
1 cup crushed pineapple
 (with the excess liquid drained; this is almost the amount in a 15-ounce can of pineapple)
1. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
2. In another mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar. 
Add remaining ingredients, beating until well mixed.
3. Pour wet ingredients into bowl of dry ingredients and stir until moistened. Don't over-beat.
4. Pour batter into two greased and floured loaf pans
 (use smaller loaf pans -- 6x3-inch, or use several mini loaf pans).
 Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes or until loaves test done.
