Triple Chocolate Banana Bread

So, uh, hi there.

It’s been awhile since I blogged. Like, 7 days or something.

Sorry about that.

I sorta bought season one of Pretty Little Liars and it sucked me in. I’ve spent the last 7 days laying on my couch watching these ridiculously pretty and overdressed teenaged girls make poor decisions. I would like to take this moment to ask my mother why she never purchased $300 sunglasses for her 16 year old daughter? Also, why was I never handed a hundred dollar bill to go have dinner with a friend?

I seriously missed out in high school.

To comfort myself I made some banana bread. With lots of chocolate. It’s pretty fab.
