Banana Bread

Banana Bread brings back many many nostalgic memories of my friend Kathy. I met Kathy when we moved into our first rental property in New Zealand. There was a knock at the front door and there stood Kathy with a freshly baked loaf of banana bread and a welcome to Shirley smile. Kathy has been one of God's best gifts to me. We live a few thousand kilometers apart now but we have the kind of friendship that we can pick up where we left off no matter how long it's been. Kathy used to add a cup of baking chocolate to her recipe so if you are in need of a chocolate fix feel free to add it in.
