"Hurricane" Honey~Banana Bread

I've lived through too many tropical storms & hurricanes growing up in Florida. I don't enjoy them, in the least bit. Nature truly terrifies me, because its so unpredictable. We have our hurricane stash of good, canned foods, baby needs, boxed milk & water. I am pretty sure the electricity will go out too so along with the flashlights & candles one more preparation we did not do was go overboard on perishables. We have enough fresh milk, fruit & veg for a couple of days. And I am trying to use up our eggs, etc.  So with what we have, I made this bread. 

I actually just threw it together with no recipe. I've been baking for so long I did not even think about it... started with the overly ripe bananas & went from there. The only thing I knew after I started was that I wanted honey in there because I'd recently read someone's blog & saw that as a banana bread ingredient & thought ohhhhhhhh. I can't remember who's blog though because If I had, I would have made her exact recipe.

But I think this is the best banana bread I have ever made. And it is quick & easy, hopefully "Irene" will be too! Off to sculpt with Play-Doh or have a hall Bowling match with my tot. Stay safe everyone!
