Five days #14: Baking Banana Bread

I had two bananas lying around on my table for the past couple days. I was getting sick of strawberry and banana smoothies so finally pulled out the big guns. At least for me. It turned out to be a good idea. Found the perfect banana bread recipe. Then again, I think I’ll make it one more time before I save it.

흑인이 되어가는 바나나가 있어서 바나나브레드를 만들어봤다. 어릴적 엄마가 해준 레시피는 없어서 일단 이것저것 찾아서 만들어봤는데 생각보다 괜찮았다. 한번 더 만들어보고 그때도 맛있으면 레시피 저장 고고.

b1I’m more used to reading off recipes from a piece of paper or a book than from my laptop for some reason. Or maybe it’s just because I’m afraid I’ll spill something on the macbook and all hell will break lose. So at least for now, I’m more than happy to read off a scribbled recipe on a random piece of paper, or in this case, card.
