lindsay's a genius
I ate a pretty early lunch today, a Simple Pasta dish of organic pasta, tomatoes, broccoli, onions, squash, eggplant, and roasted red pepper in a Garlic & Oil sauce. I filled my bowl to the brim but afterwards I was still hungry so I made a Chopped Greens salad and ate an apple. Yummy and satisfying :). By this time I had already finished cleaning my room... what to do, what to do... bake? Of course! I stopped by Lindsay's secret tester recipe site and looked for one that needed ingredients I already had. Well, I didn't have to look far! Happy Herbivore's Chocolate Banana bread jumped right out at me and sounded delectable. I headed right to it and about 3 hours later took this out of the oven. Jealous? You should have smelled the house, incredible! After cooling I cut myself a tiny slice and added a smear of peanut butter. It was an explosion of creamy banana sweetness in my mouth met by a hint of chocolate deliciousness! We'll see how long this lasts :). Right now I'm working on my application to write for Glimpse, "a new National Geographic platform -- in print and online -- about real life abroad. It features stories by young Americans that delve beneath the surface of global cultures and day-to-day living overseas. By providing a mainstream audience, Glimpse empowers talented young storytellers to help others see the world in a new way." Wish me luck!
