Ma's Quick Banana Bread

3 ripe bananas
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil
1 1/4 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda

Mash bananas in a large bowl.  Stir in eggs and oil; mix well.  Sift together dry ingredients and add to banana mixture.  Stir only until blended (should be slightly lumpy).  Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan.  Bake at 325 degrees for 75 minutes.

Recipe doubles well.

Quick Chili

2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can northern white beans
1 tsp. pepper

Heat in a sauce pan.  Enjoy!  I also sometimes throw in leftover cooked ground beef, turkey or sausage.  This is a wonderful, quick and delicious comfort winter food.

  1. That sounds good; you could also warm tortillas to serve on the side; hungry eaters could pile their serving into a tortilla.
