Banana bread

What does one do, when one is too lazy to make a chocolate banana smoothie for breakfast every morning?

This is, by the way, a delicious and nutritious way to begin the morning, and it is pretty easy:

1 banana
1 cup of chocolate soy milk
3 ice cubes

Just blend until smooth and enjoy.

But anyway, what happens when you are too lazy to do that? You end up with a bunch of really nasty looking bananas sitting in your fridge, every day getting closer to the stage where they sprout legs, hold a mutiny, and turn you into a smoothie. Not a pleasant experience. Your only solution, therefor, is to do something that takes slightly more time than a daily smoothie, and is, admittedly, less healthy.

Banana Bread
6 over-ripe bananas (and by over-ripe, I mean black as pitch and squishy, eww!)
3/4 c. sugar
1 t vanilla extract
3/4 cup of egg beaters
3 c. flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

Mix all ingredients. Put into two 5 x 9 inch loaf pans that have been sprayed with pam. Bake at 325°F degrees for 1 hour.

The bread this creates is heavy and moist, and quite delicious. We ate one loaf in about a day, and the other is in the fridge for later consumption. If it is left there until it sprouts legs, I don't think there is anything else that can be done with it other than putting a steak through it's heart and throwing it away.
