For Josh

My brother Josh makes the best banana bread that I have ever tasted. I'm not even kidding when I say that I could probably eat a whole batch of the batter like a milk shake. Josh, however, lives far far away and can no longer supply me with the banana bread I require. So it was the thought of this deliciousness that inspired me to actually go to the grocery store and buy all the supplies necessary to bake a tasty treat.

I waited until the bananas got brownish and when I realized I still hadn't made any bread I got the bright idea to put the bananas in the freezer until I was good and ready. You can probably guess what problem I ran in to: Frozen and then unfrozen bananas are NASTY. Let this be a lesson to you all.

Josh, I blame you for my lack of banana bread. And for anyone who is interested in the best banana bread recipe ever, check out Crust & Crumb.

I'm sorry I have deprived you of banana bread for so long. I didn't realize you had gotten desperate enough to try yourself. I'll try to FedEx you some, but I doubt it will be the same.

i am trying to figure out how to say this politely, but are you saying you really froze bananas with the intention of eating them later? I love you, but I am pretty sure that is what I am getting out of this. can this be the same woman who can cook 10 pounds of meat at once?!
