going bananas! banana stickers, a banana bread recipe, and a banana loving monkey

The banana sticker monkeys used to make up really fun sayings or use pictures of Curious George, but it seems that they haven’t been able to come up with any good stickers lately. They’ve started stacking bananas on their heads, instead.

They also like putting multiple stickers on bananas (or maybe someone saved up their stickers).

Since banana monkeys like banana bread, I thought I’d include a recipe. Enjoy!

Banana Bread Recipe
(from Mom and Crystal Sugar)
½ C butter or margarine
1 C sugar
Cream well.

Blend in:
*4-6 mashed ripe bananas
3 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla

Sift together:
2 C sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda

Add alternately with:
** ½ C butter milk
Blend until well combined.

Fold in:
½ C chopped walnuts

Pour into a greased 9x5x3 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 90 minutes. Cool in pan on a rack for 20 min. Remove from pan and continue cooling on rack.

*more ripe than the bananas picture above - when the bananas have lots of brown spots on them, they’re probably ripe enough
** may substitute sour milk or sweet milk soured with 2 tsp of vinegar
