Just had a homemade banana loaf

My brother in law made it. Man was amazing. The outside was slightly crunchy and had kinda caramelised a bit. The inside was soft. There were walnuts through it

I babysit for my sister and brother in law. I don’t ask for money but like today now and then I get a free cake or two!


In addition my side effects from the vaccine have lessoned and am feeling a lot better. Might have been the sugar rush from the cake


My friend said he was at a party in his early 20’s. Someone had made a loaf of home-made bread and his pal was really hungry.

But he drank way too much and just before his buddy passed out he yelled…


Then he did a faceplant on the couch and passed out. :smile:


I thought the story was so funny, I actually say the term “Home-a-Loaf” when I’m pulling into the driveway from a car ride with the family.

It’s my silly way of saying ‘we’re home’.


Patrick you have so many good stories. You should write a musical and include some of the stories

Thanks @Jimbob!

Yeah. I seem to have a knack for remembering every funny thing that has happened to me or others over the years.

I have good recall for humorous events. My buddies tell me the same thing…that I’m always bringing up funny stories from my past.

I keep meaning to make banana bread, but bananas never last long enough in this house to get properly ripe. Starlet prefers them green (ew) and I am lucky if I can even get one that is properly yellow;

I’m with starlet, I like my bananas a little green.


Banana bread is the best! Especially when someone else makes them for you. You feel so much love. Yum

That is exactly what happened today. My brother in law specifically set out just to bake me banana bread. I was very touched


It is very brave to admit when you are wrong. :rofl:

Is there something I’m missing? I don’t get the humor in “Home-a-Loaf” Is it like another saying?

My friend’s pal was so drunk and he wanted a loaf of home-made bread.

Instead, he just yelled out ‘Home-a-Loaf’…then faceplanted on the couch and passed out.

I found it very funny.
