remember pogs? the little disc things with shiny stickers on them.
does anyone remember when we did with them?
i just remember one spring break in florida when all my sister and i cared about was: pogs, beaded cornrows, johnathan taylor thomas (for her) and andrew keegan (for me).
speaking of spring break, i’m about to go miley cyrus-ing on a wrecking ball if i don’t see the sun soon. please don’t ever let me not plan a vacation in the first half of the year.
i dont even fight it anymore. i just stay in. and inevitably i start opening my cabinets and inventing things to make. sort of like i’ve been doing my entire life, except now my coworkers are forced into being my taste testers instead of my brother.
so i have a 90s problem. and a banana problem. clearly.
see the thing is – we get fruit for free at work. and on friday afternoons, they’ve browned just slightly and so i steal them. well i don’t steal them, really – i’m doing the world a service because otherwise they would just go to waste and hunger is a real problem in the world people.
anywho, my friend katie kapala (i thought about using code names for my friends, but honestly i would just screw it up two paragraphs from now) sent me this: http://foodmatters.tv/articles-1/25-powerful-reasons-to-eat-bananas
bananas cure pms, seasonal affective disorder, can clean my leather handbag AND prevent cancer? hi – king arthur, yeah i found the holy grail. you’re welcome.
so it’s (last) saturday night, i’ve already watched “the cove” and caught up on “the kitchen” – which sidenote, my new life goal is to be a host on that show, that’s all – and i wanted something sweet, but not too sweet. i wanted some texture to it.
so i grabbed some things, threw them in a bowl, forgot one thing (re: egg) and my oatmeal banana chocolate chip cookies were born.
wait are no-egg recipes a thing? if so, i accidentally forgot it on purpose.
