Banana Nut Bread

November 7, 2017

 

From the beginning of time, bananas have been my favorite fruit. High in sugar, potassium and all things a monkey like me finds scrumptious. Fast forward to the first time I ever had a bite of some moist Banana Nut Bread and I was absolutely sold. I'll totally take a piece of Banana Nut Bread that is dry as long as it's gluten-free {I don't like to say I haven't tried something, at least if I tried it and don't like it I tried} but I would much rather have a slice that is moist. That is why I came up with the most delicious honey butter syrup like ever. Not that I have had honey butter syrup before, TBH.

 

 

I want to come clean with you guys. It has been hard to keep the blog afloat. I have been interpreting more and more these days so my time is occupied with other duties and happenings, hence the lack of updates on IG stories (although I am still uploading images weekly and posts as well). Each year, around the end of summer time, I have a crash. I come down from the high of blogging all year long and I suddenly just...quit! I give up. I feel like I have too many ideas, too many recipes and/or tutorials and I get overwhelmed thinking that I cannot pump out that much content in such a short period of time.

 

 

But, that is where I am wrong. I certainly CAN handle it. I have handled a lot of things in life and put up with a lot of bullshit so I should start putting up with myself more. Is this too TMI or am I totally having an online therapy session with whoever actually reads this damn thing?

 

 

This year, I talked a little bit on the blog about how I planned to go through the year putting out as much content as I possibly could even if it meant only twice or three times a week. I think I have done just that in the last few months since the summer truly ended and left me wondering if I would actually work through this blog "burn out" so to speak, which I guess is what I have been feeling about interpreting for a while now until I decided I had to get up and keep doing the thing that God told me I came to this Earth to do for a living or whatever...my calling.

 

 

 

 

It's different sitting in the leadership role of the interpreting game. I didn't say easy, because it's a very complicated industry, but it's different. I am happy to be back to interpreting full-time. Unfortunately even though that means blogging will be part-time, I have actually kept up with my goals and expectations for the blog this year. Stay with me and I will do my best to make eHealed what it's meant to be and serve.

 

Let's get back to not doing an internet psychological evaluation and back to talking about the most legendary Banana Nut Bread I have ever had or made in my life [and I have made and eaten plenty]. In just an hour, you can be eating warm and moist Banana Nut Bread drenched in a homemade instant honey butter syrup that will leave your palate floating with gratitude. This definitely made it to the list of stuff to make for Thanksgiving this year.
