Meatless Monday – Banana Bread & Kids in the Kitchen

I think this is the recipe that started it all.  We had some ripe bananas one day, so I looked for a banana bread recipe.  We got out the flour and the sugar and I taught Miss Love how to measure.  I think this is the recipe that makes her think all recipes should have flour and sugar.

The best thing about this recipe is the confidence in the kitchen it gave all my kids from the very beginning.  Even when one time we miscounted the flour and had way too much.  They were never discouraged to try it again.  Even Big G (or I guess I should say especially), who is not quite 2, loves to get in and help.

And hot banana bread with melting butter is always a crowd pleaser.  Some day, I imagine my boys will use this recipe to impress friends or maybe even a girl.  Who knows.  I am just happy to be able to start them on the right path.
