I hope the Editor of this site lets this one through, cause it’s good. It’s a secret you see. A deep dark secret. A secret that could bring down civilizations and change the course of time and any progress my people have made since the fifties. By my people I mean dudes. Just regular beer drinkin, cussin, spittin, woodworkin, car fixin, bread makin dudes’. WAIT A MINUTE! That last one didn’t fit in there.
Yep… bread makin. I told you it was a secret. Men can and do make banana bread. I am proof. I made my first banana bread tonight at 6:30pm Central standard time. Yes I did! I am sure you can tell by my brazen pride and foolish gloating that I don’t do a lot of cooking. If you thought that you would be incorrect. I do my fair share of making the same meals over and over again (Which will be the topic of another segment). I grill like men do. (Another topic for later) But I do not bake. I am not sure what that is but I just don’t do it. I am skerred of baking. I do not get the fact that baking soda and baking powder are two different things. Yeast is a riddle wrapped around a mystery. But I got brave and baked today.
Why would you do this you ask? I’ll tell you why. For the same reason Lewis and Clark mapped out this country. I got mad. Now, to be honest, I don’t know that Lewis and Clark were mad. I just needed a reference that seemed intelligent. I think it is a good one so lets just move on. I saw those bananas sitting on the counter getting black. It just made me mad. After all every one thought they were going to eat em. My household saw grand plans for those bananas. Alas that fruit was left to die on the hook it resides on. So I said “LET’S DO THIS!!!” Simple as that.
All in all it was an exciting experience. I learned that having a “Y” chromosome does not preclude me from baking delicious treats for my family. I also learned what baking soda does. Ok I lied I still don’t know what it does but the recipe said I needed it so I bought it. Oh and if you are wondering yes I had to look up the chromosome thing too.
I thought about adding the recipe for this but I am not going to. This way I can call it my secret banana bread recipe that I got off the Internet.
