Banana Bread with Nutella

We had a bunch of over-ripe bananas the other day, so I decided to make banana bread. I wanted to try a new recipe, so I looked and looked...and found:

Hazelnut Banana Bread with Nutella Swirl

I made the recipe exactly as written, except I did not add the hazelnuts (because I didn't have any). It turned out great! The kids loved it! It was gone so fast!
I can't wait to make it again...

Garden Update: Attack of the Weeds!

We visited family for a couple of weeks, and this is what we came back to!:
A garden full of weeds...
(At least everything wasn't dead!)
After some hard work, everything is back under control.
I even found some hidden sprouts under the out of control squash and pumpkin plants. It looks like some of the tomato seeds I planted did grow...and some peppers! We should have some cucumbers soon too. Unfortunately my painted rock plant markers were not the best idea. Rocks have moved around, and the paint has faded and chipped off on some. So...we will be surprised by most of what we get!
Here are our strawberries. The only thing we didn't grow from seed:
Harvested kale and strawberries:

It was easy and worked great...
and she was very happy with the results!
