Stir up a quick bread, Banana Blueberry Quinoa Bread. It is healthy and made with whole wheat and wild blueberries.
Writer’s block has been killing me lately. I’m trying to write about this glorious Banana Blueberry Quinoa Bread and all I can think of is that we loved it and my family is full of bread fiends. That hardly does justice to this deliciously, moist, banana packed bread. It doesn’t help that it is eerily quiet in our house today. Storms are coming through and have knocked out the cable, internet and phones. I’ve gotten so used to hearing the TV or radio in the background that the thoughts in my head seem so loud today. Maybe another cup of coffee would help. Thank goodness we have electricity which means air conditioning. I should not be complaining. Air conditioning is much more important than cable. I’ve started to reach the age where been cooling is very high on my list. These occasional hot flashes make me detest summer anymore.
I’m really not as cranky as I appear. Now if I had a slice of Banana Blueberry Quinoa Bread to go with the second cup of coffee I’m about to have, I would be doing twirls of joy in the kitchen. Every time I’ve made this scrumptious bread, it hasn’t lasted long. Both my little one and hubby enjoy it, which leaves less for me. I really should get smart about stashing some slices away for myself. Alas, it makes me feel guilty. I like to share healthy, delicious food. I just can’t help myself.
This is so silly. I keep thinking of going to sit in my car so I can listen to CNN. If I was more tech savvy, I could probably figure out how to listen on my phone. I can’t imagine the charges since our internet isn’t working though. We still own a radio, I could turn it on. Hello, I shouldn’t let the cable ruin my day or mood. Talk radio on! Woo, I feel better already. Except I really want a slice of Banana Blueberry Quinoa Bread. Guess what I’ll be baking this afternoon, especially if the internet doesn’t come back up. I have a coffee cup that my husband’s Godmother gave me which says “Stay Calm and Cook”. I think that is my motto for day. It’s a rainy, windy day, time to bake, bake and bake.
I use to love rainy stormy days. I would read a good book and enjoy the sounds of the storm. Now I just think about all the stuff I cannot get done because the internet is down. Even my books are electronic now. LOL – oh, I think I am too dependent on electronics. I am craving a simpler time when I had to walk to school barefoot up a hill. This is what happens when I have my own thoughts to think about too much. It is time to get out of my own head.
Chilling out is not one of my strong suits. Big surprise, right?! I am a planner, analyzer, organizer extraordinaire. Well, the radio is soothing this savage beast and writing this has put me in a rather good mood. I’m going to have that second cup of coffee and go shopping. Hey when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. Costco, here I come!
