Shout Outs: spoke cards & zucchini bread

First, I’m blessed with lovely friends. After retelling my story about how shaken I was about losing my bike Tiffany and Jacinda offered up a bike of theirs that I could borrow. And what a bike…

Isn’t it the cutest thing ever? I mean, I loved my bike and it was new and comfy and pretty styley but I think this one is cuter -complete with spoke card designed by Tiffany for Jon Snyder (which I also lost with my bike). Thank you ladies.

Next, thanks to my daughter for making a lovely loaf of bread using an extremely ripe (um, black) banana and zucchini. This is technically our banana bread recipe but I asked her to substitute zucchini for one of the bananas because we only had one ripe banana on hand. Check out how lovely this stuff is; I love how zucchini somehow adds that crystaline crisp to the top.

If you’ve ever suffered through years of dry banana bread as I did growing up you will so appreciate having this recipe on hand. It is scrumptious and moist and mmm-mmm good. I don’t know where this recipe originates as it was passed along by my bff.

Banana Bread (heat oven to 350 f)

  • 1 c flour
  • 1 c sugar (I use unrefined organic)
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 (extremely) ripe bananas
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1/2 c oil (pure olive oil is fine)

Beat eggs, sugar and oil. Add soda and salt to flour. Mix flour into egg mixture. Mash bananas in a separate bowl. Add vanilla and bananas to everything else.

Bake for 45 minutes in a greased loaf pan.

    Tiffany and Jacinda are amazing people that I feel so lucky knowing! You’re going to look so stylish riding that bike around town (even more stylish with those spoke cards)!

    Also, the zucchini bread looks delicious!

      They are amazing and it’s clear that the Violets seem to produce some pretty damn fantastic women. Lucky for me! Yeah Spokane!
