Me: Riley, we have those two really ripe bananas. Wanna make some banana nut bread tonight?
Riley: Sure, Mom.
Me: Although we might not have enough eggs. We’ll have to see.
Riley: Well, if we don’t have enough eggs, we can substitute apple sauce.
Me: Why not? Good suggestion, kid.
PS: This conversation occurred on our way to school. Girl cracks me up! We’ve had to do some substituting recently to bake with the ingredients we have at home. We made cupcakes for the grandparents last week with only two eggs instead of three. As the batter was mixing, I asked Riley if we should add a mashed banana. I think that is where she got the idea from.
PPS: The cupcakes turned out really good.
