How To Make Breakfast

Step 1: Over a period of 4 months, throw all over-ripe bananas into the freezer.

Step 2: Over a period of several weeks, make numerous sincere promises to bake banana bread; do not follow through.

Step 3: Experience pain as a result of a black, frozen banana falling from the over-stuffed freezer onto toe.

Step 4: Swear that you will make banana bread on the weekend so as to avoid further injury and to clear out some space in the freezer.

Step 5: Forget about banana bread; make cookies instead.

Step 6: Experience pain again (see Step 3 above).

Step 7: Come up with brilliant plan to make Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins instead of banana bread.

Step 8: Actually make the muffins.

½ c. butter
¾ c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 c. over-ripe bananas (3)
1 c. chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, whisk to blend. Mix in dry ingredients. Mix in bananas and chocolate chips, don’t over-mix. Bake at 350°F for about 25 minutes.

Step 9: While they are still warm from the oven and the chocolate is still melty, consume several muffins slathered with butter in quick succession.

Step 10: Reserve the few remaining muffins for breakfast the next morning; serve with cappuccinos while still in pajamas.

Step 11: Give the puppy a little taste because he lays at your feet and keeps them warm as you eat your breakfast.
