You guys, my stove is fixed!
A guy came out last week, looked at it, and said “Yeah, I’m gonna have to get someone out here to fix this.”
And I was all, “Waaaaait, I waited here all afternoon for you to come out here to tell me that you were going to have someone come fix it?”
Like I’ve said, the Army is all about efficiency.
So, they sent out their resident stove expert yesterday and all 4 burners immediately lit up when he tried it. The universe really likes to make me look stupid.
But luckily, the next time he tried, none of them turned on.
Five minutes later, he had all the burners working and 2 out of 3 of my children had decided to become “stove fixers” when they grow up.
Stove Saga 2014 is officially over and I will not mention it again! Woohoo!
I made Chocolate Chip Banana Bread to celebrate! I’ve been really craving banana bread for some reason and since the only way to improve banana bread is to add chocolate, that’s what I did. It was so moist and so chocolatey. I’m pretty excited to have another piece later today.
You guys know that my baking pet peeve is quick bread that only takes up about ⅓ of the baking pan. Unfortunately, this one is one of those. Ugh. If you’re like me and like a quick bread that takes up the whole pan, try a couple mini loaf pans instead!

So I just made banana bread with chocolate chips in it, but one look at this and I realize I had it all wrong – the whole thing needed to be chocolate! That looks so good and fudgy! Next time – this banana bread it is!
