Banana Bread x 2 and Goulash :)

Sooo I wanted banana bread so I can have something for a quick breakfast.
So I made a regular for my dad :) and a Chocolate Chip for me :D

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teasp baking powder

½ teasp baking soda

½ teasp salt

½ teasp ground cinnamon

½ cup margarine, softened

¾ cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

2 medium, ripe DOLE® Bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)

¼ cup sour cream

1 teasp vanilla extract

1 cup chopped almonds or walnuts, toasted


Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in medium bowl; set aside.

Beat margarine and sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Beat in bananas, sour cream and vanilla until blended. Add in flour mixture; beat until just blended. Stir in nuts.

Pour into 9 x 5-inch baking pan sprayed with vegetable cooking spray.

Bake at 350°F., 55 to 65 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes.

Now that it is cooled, I am going to go cut a piece :)

And I need supper/lunch for the week so I made Goulash Yum!!! it just needs a little more ketchup
Goulash ( recipe from my mom)
Cook some ground beef, and garlic.....I just cooked as much as I thought would be appropriate for the pan size. I cooked up two cups of elbow pasta, and put half the pasta in the pan, then the ground beef garlic mixture, and lots of ketchup! Then the rest of the pasta and I mixed. I kept adding ketchup till I thought it was enough, grated some cheese on top and then stuck it in the already 350 degree oven for about 20 min. It was delish! and hopefully it stays yummy for the week.
