#100DaysOfThoseDays – Banana Bread

Every day is National ‘Something’ day. National Avocado Day, National Icecream for Breakfast Day (we missed that one, thank God), and we even have National Data Privacy Day – the 28th of January. Look it up if you don’t believe me!

Lucy and I have decided to use these days as prompts for our #100DayProject2023.

Lat year our posts were about things of the past; #100DaysOfOldDays. You can check that out HERE.

We’re keeping it in past by using the National ‘Something’ day as our topic. We’re calling our project #100DaysOfThoseDays. We’re shocking pleased with ourselves, so we are!

The #100dayproject officially began yesterday but we’re starting today because we forgot about it yesterday. You see? There’s no pressure at all with the 100 day project. We can miss a day and just carry on the following day when life gets in the way.

Day 1 #100daysOfThoseDays

Today is National Banana Bread Day.

It is speculated that banana bread originated in the 18th century. It became popular in the USA in the 1930s and then again in the 1960s. I don’t know when it became popular in Ireland but I definitely didn’t see or eat banana bread when I was a child.

However, I do have a memory of a banana bread recipe circulating our neighbourhood some time in the late 70s. It wasn’t a real recipe. It was a joke and not for young eyes. The adults had a great laugh about it.

It was years later that I saw for myself what the big joke was.

I won’t post it here but I’m sure if you Google ‘Joke Banana Bread Recipe’ you’ll find it! Only if you’re into rude jokes though! Don’t come back here to give out to me if you find it offensive.

That’s my only childhood memory of banana bread. Our bread was brown or white and sometimes it had currants, but never bananas!
