carrot banana bread

for the hard times
for the easy times, the good times, the boring times, the mornings and the midnights

banana bread is always welcome.
banana bread that's like carrot cake.

sniff. sniff. rabbits

1 cup grated carrots

preheat oven to 350 degreesF. combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl - flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg - and whisk to combine very well. in another bowl, combine the bananas, brown sugar, oil, and eggs. dump the dry ingredients into the banana mixture and stir to combine. fold in the grated carrots and dump into a greased 9x5" loaf pan. bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

hello i'm back.
i was gone, did you know?
no, because i have been a sneak.

i've been gone for 8 weeks, traveling about. its been complete dreamworld.

and now that i've had 3 days to lay around in denial that i am home, to stay in pajamas all day and mope and watch orange is the new black... i might finally be ready to face the music. the blog music.

i have around 2,500 pictures to sort through, i've barely unpacked, my life is in shambles, and i can't button my pants.

it was totally worth it.
