What To Do On A 90 Degree Day

Weather Man – “Expect a scorcher today. We have a wave of high pressure building around the Pacific Northwest, creating some hot temperatures for our area.”

Me – “Hmmmm, I have so many bananas left over from our last trip. I think I’ll make them into banana bread… right now.”

Ugh! What was I thinking? 99.9% of the year we live in the comfort of the 70’s or lower temperatures. Anything above 80 is a true, break out every fan, blow up the pool, and complain that you don’t have AC, HEATWAVE. I know, many of my blogger friends have no sympathy for me. But, in my defense, we just aren’t used to this.

So, yesterday I made 5 loaves of banana bread, sliced them, and used the food saver to wrap them up until fall. They will make the perfect after school snacks for my kiddos.

I don’t eat banana bread, but my kids and hubby love it. I use a recipe from the Pillsbury cookbook and I don’t even know if it’s a good one. I just trust them when they tell me it’s yummy. If you have a great banana bread recipe I’d love it if you’d share!

It’s supposed to hit 95 today. Maybe I’ll start a fire in the fireplace and bake some pies.

    What a huge coincidence!! We made banana bread yesterday, too. We needed munchies for a meeting I was holding here, and a basket of what we call 'dead bananas' … so banana bread was what we did.

    When we have overripe bananas, and no intention to make banana bread, we toss them into the freezer to be used later. Thaw them in the microwave, and they're good to go.

    I'll have to dig out my banana bread recipe and send it to you. It's from my grandmother, and it's wonderful!

    I love banana bread! It has been crazy hot here too and one day I made potato soup!

    Hi Becca,
    I live in the PNW area too and this HOT weather is not fun.
    Your banana bread looks divine.
