I'm feeling good. I've been baking for two days. Nothing major some chocolate chip cookies and some banana wheat bread with chocolate chips of course. What's so special is I know I'm feeling better because I'm baking. I haven't baked in over two years. Depression just leaves you feeling empty and not wanting to do much of anything either. The last time I baked this banana bread was when my Dad was visiting one weekend and he ate it all up! He was sneaking bits and pieces here and there till the entire cake was gone. It makes me happy just thinking about it. Knowing I made something for him *(the professional baker)* that he enjoyed so much!
This morning I made this for me and my brother... and this time I made it with whole wheat.. we can all use more fiber and I have to say it was just delish! Like I said I'm feeling better not only in my mind, my heart but also my body. Slowly but surely all the pieces of me are coming back together.
Thank you for allowing me to share this. The next time you make banana bread I hope it "bakes" some wonderful memories for you too!
