Day Two

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I’ve made about a million pans of banana bread, but I’ve never actually tasted it. And not just because the loaves are gobbled up by my family in milliseconds. It’s freshman logic: I hate bananas; banana bread is made from bananas; therefore, I hate banana bread.

But not so fast, Aristotle. On my second day of experimental eating, while I was out and about in Saranac Lake, I picked up a slab of chocolate chip banana bread at Nori’s Village Market. And I didn’t hate it. It tasted a bit like the abhorrent banana, but just a subtle hint. The chocolate chips helped overcome my reservations.
