What a Nut!

On Saturday morning, after the husband returned from his run to the airport to drop off Tonggu Grammy, and before I headed out the door for Mandarin class, the husband noticed we had some bananas that needed to be used immediately. He asked me if he should try his hand at baking banana bread. I readily agreed, silently complimenting myself - yet again - on my excellent choice in husband.

I am so wise, y'all.

Anyways, the Husband made a delicious smelling loaf of banana bread while I was away. When I walked in the door after Mandarin class, I couldn't wait to taste it. The sweet smell of bananas wafted into practically every room of the house. It took awhile for the bread to cool down, so I didn't slice into the loaf until after the husband and Tongginator left to attend her Mandarin class.

Oh my lands, it looked so yummy, y'all.

I took a much anticipated first bite. It tasted... unusual. I couldn't figure out exactly what was... different... about the bread until my second bite, when I bit into a nut. 'Hmm,' I thought, 'we didn't have any walnuts in the house, so I wonder what Tonggu Daddy used. Hmm...' I figured it out on my third bite. Oh yes, I did.

And if any of y'all would like the recipe for Banana Bread with Peanuts, you just let me know. I'll pass it right along.

Too funny!! Why do men like to change recipes so much? They don't seem to want to follow the "tried and true". I am sure it was still yummy and you lavished praise! Hubby that cooks - yes, you chose a good man!

Sounds dee-lish.

We like peanut butter on bananas, so I bet it was good!

Gotta love men! LOL!

Buckeroomama said...

There's a Post cereal called Banana Nut Crunch... maybe that's where he got the idea?

hahahahahahahahaaaaaaahahahahaaaaa!

Logical Libby said...

Well, some people like peanut butter and banana sandwiches... It's almost the same.

Bangs said...

Not sure I would like actual peanuts in my banana bread but I do have a reciped for peanut butter banana muffin that is delicious!

Dawn said...

My mom has always loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches... sounds like this recipe would be the perfect combo for her!

happygeek said...

This sounds like much ado about nut-thing.

Janet said...

First of all, ha ha about the Geeks's comment. Secondly, YUCK! That would be gross! :-) My husband made meat loaf when I was gone in December. I was impressed until I found out that was all he made for supper. Just meatloaf. No potatoes, no veggies, just meatloaf. Sigh.

Aunt LoLo said...

BWAHAHAHAHA. Well, you know...Grandma used to make me PB and Banana sandwhiches...it could be good! LOL

Jboo said...

Funny! Well, you know sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't!

Oh my goodness, that sounds exactly like something MY husband would do. He once put water chestnuts in spaghetti sauce.

So, how did it taste?

Kristi said...

I think your husband and mine went to the same "recipe inprovision" school...

chicknboy said...

ok-kudos to the hubby that baked banana bread for you!
and peanuts? woullda never thunk it.

Myrnie said...

That actually sounds pretty good :) I'm impressed he can bake!!

Mama.The.Dragon said...

As always, a good laugh at your expense! Thanks!

She Writes said...

A man who cooks? Can't even imagine! You did good :).

Soliloquy said...

You CANNOT make this stuff up.

Classic humor.

Beachy Mimi said...

That would be a taste...surprise.
Interesting!!

Wanda said...

Yup...you hit one of my big pet peeves. Husbands who edit.

Why, oh why don't they just do what you ask and not have to "think" about what they can change about the original request.

Now, having dumped that little load - I could handle peanuts in my banana bread. It's my husband actually baking that would cause me to faint.

:)

Kristin said...

Oh that is too funny! Hey, at least he tried!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

I have to say even though it sound strange.... I would think that it might taste good.

What a great guy..... he even bakes!!

Enjoy your week!

xo,

Suzie said...

That made me laugh out loud!!
At least he baked for you :o)

Nicole said...

Your husband noticed you had bananas that needed to be used immediately. Huh. I'm not even sure where to begin, that is so cool. I will simply applaud your taste in men.

The Source said...

Blech! That sounds horrible. I can honestly say that will never happen around her. Because bananas are only allowed to remain in my house for 14.2 seconds upon removal from the grocery bag. Ryan must consume every banana he SEES as soon as humanly possible or it will drive him insane just knowing there's a banana in the house.

Annie said...

I use pecans!! Peanuts would be interesting:)

Sharie said...

I would rather use peanuts than walnuts or pecans as I don't like either of those.

I had some bananas that needed to be used a few weeks ago. My sister, Tammie makes KILLER banana muffins so I called for her recipe. My brother-in-law actually found it for me, but the only ingredient I had in the house for the muffins...the bananas. No flour - no baking soda - no peanuts:)

Marla said...

OMG. That is classic (and funny as all heck). Bless his little heart for trying though. :)

Mahmee said...

Ha. Elvis would LOVE IT!

What? Seriously! :)
I give him an A for making the effort and another A for improvising!
Way to Go TD!!!

Donna said...

Wow, I never would have thought of that but I'm sure it was really good! Bananas and peanut butter go so well together so why not peanuts and banana bread! Maybe I'll give it a try next time!

Hmmmmm.... I frequently make banana bread around here, but never with peanuts. TD is quite the experimenter.
