…use them to make banana bread!
Okay, so that didn’t sound as clever coming out as it sounded in my head, but you get the picture.
I didn’t have a whole lot of time to spend this weekend on baked goods, as class, workouts, and family time consumed more of my schedule, but I did manage to whip up a pretty awesome, healthy banana bread from a box 🙂
Although it wasn’t homemade, I was quite content with the ingredients list and nutrition facts. Organic brown rice flour, being the base, it also ended up being gluten-free!
All you need are deuces. Two overly ripe bananas, two EGGLAND’S BEST eggs, and the boxed mix. Talk about a lazy baker, right?
It was so easy, it almost felt wrong. But if it is, I don’t want to be right. Just wait…you’ll see…
While it was in the oven at 350° for 40 minutes, I got my elliptical face on and went downstairs after class on Saturday afternoon. It was kind of pleasant having everyone out of the house and just doing my thing.
A short time later, this hunk of
burning love deliciousness came out of the oven. Everyone knows that baked goods are best straight from the oven, so it was an obvious choice to slice off an end piece and devour almost immediately ❤
Lord knows, I’ve been needing to get some color on my nails for quite awhile now. I figured Saturday was the perfect opportunity.
I’ve had to keep my nails trimmed back for many reasons…I don’t bite them anymore, but I can’t stand trying to put in and take out my contacts when I’ve got longer fingernails. I scratch my eyes everytime! Not fun. Annnnnnnd, my job is pretty reliant on my typing abilities, since it’s such a fast paced work load, the faster I can pump things out on the computer, the better.
I really wanted the “kitty, kitty” color, which was a cheetah print! But, they were all out, so I went with “bling it on” 🙂 Super simple. I did them in a matter of 4 minutes and didn’t have to wait for them to dry! Sweeeet.
That night, we ordered chinese take out for dinner.
Steamed shrimp with mixed vegetables
Afterward, I had a skype date and then took my little sister to see a movie. We had both wanted to see “Beastly” for awhile now!
For those of you who haven’t heard of it yet, it was supposed to be a modern day “Beauty and the Beast” story. I thought it was decent…definitely not a waste of time, but nothing life-altering. They could’ve done a lot more with it in my opinion.
Regardless, it was a fun night with a loved one, so I was thankful ❤
Have you seen Beastly yet? What did you think? Any other good movies lately?
