It has been ages since I last posted a recipe. This summer we were on our India vacation, had a great time eating all kinds of favorite foods and of course spending time with the family.

Every time I visit India I am reminded of a few things and one of the most important one is there is a large population in India which does not even get enough food to eat everyday and that I should be very thankful to have food on the table every night for me and the family. So when I see food getting wasted it bothers me a lot. At work they bring in fresh fruit everyday, it is great to have such a healthy option for snacking and I appreciate it, however I was very shocked to see that some Bananas were getting thrown out just because those had a few brown spots. When I saw that I asked if I could bring those home and our office manager was surprised but said,” Sure!”

So I brought it home and the next day my team members got to eat homemade, whole some banana bread. I was happy that I saved three bananas from going into the trash and my coworkers were happy to eat a piece of home made banana bread. Sorry I did not get time to take step-step pictures since it was a work day, please let  me know if you have any questions.
