Banana Banana Bread

Quick recipe for you today since we are on VACATION this week. Woohooooo! I say that, but we aren't really doing anything this week. John and I went to Italy this morning, going to go into the mountains later this week, and then the beach. Oh, and a dentist appointment for me. Hurray! Love those. Really, I don't hate the dentist but I am not looking forward to this one. At all.

I made this bread the other day because we had a few bananas that were... well... brown. We just didn't eat those Cheerios fast enough I guess. It is moist, tender and sans nuts. John says it tastes like a bread form of banana pudding. What more do you need to know?
