Consumer warning....

Well this might sound a little negative - but I feel like I should warn consumers - do not buy this soup. I had bought it a while back and had it sitting on my shelf. Tonight I didn't have any fancy dinner plans, and quite frankly have needed to go major grocery shopping for weeks now - so the choices were kind of slim. We had some bananas that needed to be eaten, so I had planned on making some banana bread (the recipe is at the end of this post) - but needed something to go with it. I gave Gabe a choice between a couple of different Bear Creek Soups - and this is what he came up with - Bear Country Hot and Sour Soup.

Looked good enough.

Well - it wasn't.

The banana muffins I made however - were AWESOME! I took my mom's wonderful banana bread recipe and just made it into muffins. Took less time to cook and turned out DELICIOUS!

2 eggs
3 medium bananas - mashed
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 & 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup nuts - chopped (optional)

Mix eggs, bananas, sugar and oil. Combine dry ingredients and add to the mixture. Stir in nuts (I didn't add nuts - and I actually like it better...). Pour into greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes. Makes 2 loaves.

I made 18 regular sized muffins and cooked them for somewhere between 15-20 minutes.

Thanks for the warning on the soup. I am loving all your thankful things. I can't come up with that many everyday. I wish. I am lucky to figure out one.
