meltation: my new word for melting snow (just cuz it sounds weird)

i know i'm late!
i was going to post this yesterday i swear!

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

but procrastination (mainly attributed to laziness) got the best of me.
actually, i didn't want to post anything until i got this done.

we were wandering through the store getting root beer floats
...when yours truly had a brain blast!
and this amazing stop-motion film was born!
don't laugh.
we may be 20 years old but we still like playing with playdough.

so i don't always finish the bananas i buy...
and so i have random bananas in the freezer.
i think my roommates hate me.
but i got rid of most of them yesterday!
(there are only 2 left now...)

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 heaping tsp ground cinnamon
3-4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt

preheat oven to 350
in a mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt and cinnamon)
in a separate bowl mix together the remaining ingredients until thoroughly mixed
mix the wet into the dry
mix until well blended
grease a 9x13 in pan
pour batter into the pan and distribute evenly with a spatula
place in the middle of the oven and bake for 40 minutes or until lightly brown on top, firm to the touch and a toothpick comes out clean
option: chocolate chips! add about 1/2 cup once batter is mixed. that turns this from banana bread into banana cake... (i'm pretty sure that it was cake to begin with...)

so somewhat healthy... i kicked myself after i made it because i made it with white flour and i had whole wheat flower in my cupboard the whole time!
til we meet again mr. banana bread...

you really can't go wrong with martha stewart.
i just bought her comfort foods cookbook online... i haven't had the chance to try it yet, but i was looking over the recipes in there and salivating even more every time i turned the page.
cook books are not good for me.
you enable a alcoholic by buying them a drink, you give me a cookbook and i'm sunk.
just leave me alone for the next few hours cuz i'm a gonner!

i love good poetry!
try this... or this... or the best play in the world.
and the coolest condiment
(and best color) in the whole universe!
i used to hate it.
but now i love it!

(i also went to d.i. yesterday.)
it was bad.
but ooooooooh so good!
but more about that later...
