So it is the first Sunday in November and Ron and I remembered to change our clocks and are sitting at church.

I lean over to him, no, actually I wrote on the bulletin, “Do we have any Bourbon”? Not something that usually comes up during a church service.

With raised eyebrows he says “No”.  I say “I need some, now”!  Ha Ha

Before I left for church, I decided I would make this.

I took some banana’s out of the freezer to thaw then we went off to church.

I did listen to the sermon which was about giving your best to others, not your leftovers. For example when giving to the food bank, don’t give the kidney beans in the back of your pantry (which I have done in the past and I am not proud of it) but the peanut butter that costs about $7 a jar right now.
So, I get home and I just begin to make this awesome loaf.
It is pretty simple, and easy, all the usual things you put in a banana loaf,
1/2  cup butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas, 1 tsp. lemon juice and
of course the usual 3 tablespoons BOURBON!
My mashed bananas and pan ready for filling
Mix this together in your mixer then add 2 cups flour, 3 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt all at once and just mix until
almost incorporated.
Add 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts and 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I might actually leave these out next time) using a spatula
There is all the great ingredients mixed together ready for the pan!
Ready for the oven.  I will have to wait almost 2 hours before I can enjoy the flavours.
It was really good.  Couldn’t really taste the bourbon, obviously or, who knows, maybe I will have a hangover tomorrow. 
Not sure what that feels like  though because I have never had one.
Until we meet again
Bourbon you say?
