chocolate mint

I love our chocolate mint – it grows on the south side of the house locked in by sidewalks or it would spread everywhere. As it is, it grows between the sidewalk and the house.

It is so very frigid in the house today – we’re trying to save on bills by keeping the thermostat in the low 60s and using space heaters. I turned the oven on and decided to bake some bread. I dried a bunch of mints and thyme, so have plenty and decided to make the chocolate mint banana bread recipe found here.

Today is banana Tuesday at our store, so I’ll get a bunch later today. I’m starting to use coupons and watch sales – beats getting a job! : )

The recipe (in my typed version) from the website:

Chocolate Mint Banana Bread

Cream: 1/2 c. butter, 1 c. brown sugar
Add: 2 eggs, a c. mashed banana, 1 tsp. vanilla
Add: 2 c. flour, 1/8 c. dried chocolate mint, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt, 1/s c. chopped walnuts.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour in greased pan. Freezes well.
