Banana bread

I bought 40 bananas last week when they were .19 lb. I let them get all ooey and gooey, The kids this morning were poking them, So I figured it was time to make the bread. From those banana's I made 2 pans ( cake size pans) and 5 bread pan sizes and one pan of muffins. Not one person in this house does not like banana bread, So when I make it I make a lot. I gave one bread pan to my daughter to take home for lunches. We ate one pan with dinner and the little ones ate the muffins up this afternoon for snacks. I had some hamburger buns that needed to be used up and some hamburger that I cooked up and had frozen, So I made taco burgers for dinner. This was an easy, quick and simple dinner. We have to take the baby 50 miles for his CT scan early tomorrow morning. They think he has thyroglossal duct cyst, But want to rule out cancer. He has to have anesthesia and I am a little scared about that. But we have to find out so we can do what has to be done. If it is thyroglossal duct cyst, He will have to have surgery, quite soon. As it is growing quite large to where he can't put his neck to his chest. Pray for him to have the thyroglossal duct cyst, It requires surgery and thyroid medicine for life, But the alternative I don't even want to think about. My oldest is coming over in the morning to watch the twins while we go, So we can concentrate on the baby. They say he will be grouchy after they wake him up. Poor baby. Anyway wish us luck and pray for us please. Michelle
