The only smell that can be compared to the freshly baked bread from the oven is the scent of Earth after the rains.. Heavenly it is !!!!
I couldn’t wait to dig in and try it but I had to wait for everyone to come home.. and when so many people enjoy a dish simultaneously it’s totally worth the wait.. In the meantime I was able to click some pics for the blog.. 🙂
Almost always I have a few overripe bananas that are lying on the kitchen table and has no takers.. Sometimes I make a banana shake but most of the time I am too health conscious to take those extra calories..(yes!! I mind it )
