procrastination tastes good

i can't help it. it's been staring at me for 2 weeks now. 

this little wonder was the ultimate shower gift to me, from my favorites (those being shanna-banana, lacey, c-rod., lindsey d., ashley l., ashley b., karlee a., joci, sister-erin, tricia, kenzie, andee belle, holly, rachelli and jules). i'm down to the wire and up to my knees in school work - procrastinating a m-m-monster of a paper that i'm trying to complete before the big day. how am i supposed to concentrate with so much on my mind (that being, the wedding and the bosch)?

so, in addition to staring into the abyss, dreaming of flowers, bride.groom spice cake and island paradise, i decided to act in true rebellion and make something truly delicious. it was ambitious, being my first bread attempt, but also an easier recipe for a virgin-bosch-user like myself. i found this delightful recipe from the baking blog i frequently stalk.

chocolate chip banana bread
1 c. butter, softened
1 1/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. buttermilk
3 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 mashed bananas
chocolate chips (as much as you like - i used a lot)

preheat oven to 300. spray 4 mini loaf pans (i used 3 medium sized) with Pam. in bowl of electric mixer, cream together butter, sugar, eggs and buttermilk. add dry ingredients. stir in bananas and chocolate chips. pour into bread pans. bake for 45-50 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.

the bosch is a dream - thank you girls, you made my year. xo.

That looks yummy! I know you should be doing your paper but that just looks so much better! Can't wait to try your recipes!

That looks divine. I'm so glad you love the mixer and got to use it. School will always be there, but bread? MMMMM.. I guessit's always there too. Still, I think it's OK you put off writing a paper. You can write papers in your sleep you're so awesome. Good luck darling with everything. Please let me know what you're going to let me do to help you (aside from the paper writing).

That looks delicious. You'll make it through these next couple of weeks, don't worry. You always manage to pull everything off in time.
