February 11 - food stuff and that new banana box

It’s crazy cold so I’ve been home all day with plenty of time to cook 

Breakfast was one of our favorites 
Hash browns with an egg on top 
I sauté diced onions and bell peppers in a little olive oil spray and then add frozen hash browns (or leftover grated baked potatoes when I have them)
When they’re done,  push them to the side and cook your egg.  

Lunch was meatloaf (that was not photo worthy but did taste good) okra and nut bread 

This is the recipe for the nut bread.  It’s low sugar and has no added fat (besides the fat in the eggs and nuts) 
If you make this,  grease the loaf pan well so it will release after baking.  
Nut Bread 
I used pecans instead of walnuts and put in a good sprinkle of cinnamon sugar between 1/2 of the batter 
It’s very good,  just a little sweet and very nice toasted and with a mug of hot beverage of your choice - I like black tea ☕️ 

Lana asked about the Rubbermaid banana keeper.  It’s new so I’m not sure how well it works.  
My husband went to the grocery store and I asked him to get a few yellow and green bananas 
None of these bananas are ripe enough to eat and the ones on the right are much greener than the bananas on the left

I plan to check them and take photos daily and we will see how well it works.  
I understand it is “supposed” to keep fruit fresh longer  - we will see! 

I heard about these a couple years ago but it was about $32 on Amazon.  I did put it on my Amazon wish list. 
I checked my list last week and the banana box was $13 then so I thought I’d give it a shot.  

And putting things in your cart or wish list (but not purchasing them immediately) at many online sellers can be a money saver.  The sellers want to sell and if you check the price after a few days,  it’s quite possible the price may drop.

TFS the bread recipe---looks good.

Keep us posted as to if the banana box works or not.

Still safe if you get all that bad weather!

Rubbermaid Banana Keeper? I need to check that out.

I am looking forward to seeing how the banana keeper works. Thanks for doing this. The price was crazy when it was just out and even $29 at Walmart.

I will be following the banana box as well!

Your meals look yummy---so does the bread.

Are you keeping your stocked pantry up? I am by filling in with cans that I have used each time I go to the store. I did discover that Walmart cut green beans (which I ordered cans online one time) are very string-y. I will not be ordering them again. Will go with another brand.

Anyone else seen this? To me it is so obvious.

That banana box is very interesting. I will be looking forward to learning how well it works.

God bless.
