A big batch of banana bread

When you live among 15 to 20 people in one house, food prep takes a huge chunk of time.

One day, I helped bake multiple loaves of banana bread. The recipe called for 16 cups of flour.

Up to this point, that was the biggest recipe I’ve ever followed and completed. Phew! But it turned out quite delicious 🙂 Hacida even let me have the recipe (though I have to scale it down drastically).

One thing I learned from this is that mixing banana bread batter requires a good amount of arm strength. I even used the hand blender to mix it, but it kept stopping so it took the whole morning to finish this up.

After completing this, I took an on-and-off nap, and then chopped lettuce for our chicken Caesar salad dinner.

Also had a glass of chocolate “prairie dairy,” aka goat milk. It tasted so pleasantly fresh,  much better than milk from grocery stores.
