Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

Banana Bread


We spent Thanksgiving weekend at my sister's cottage in Orford, Québec. We had a nice view on the lake. It is so peaceful. In the summer her family spends hours on the lake fishing and canoeing. During the weekend she also invited my parents for two nights. We don't get the chance to see them often because we live three hours away from their hometown. Friday night I prepared a nice homemade pasta sauce and then we played cards all night.

We appreciate those moments and I am thankful that we have our parents in our lives. Family is so important to us and we will have lasting memories of time spent with them. My dad is 76 years old and he is as solid as a rock. He spent all weekend helping rake leaves and doing other stuff outside with my brother-in-law and my husband. He was telling us that he still bikes about 25 kms a day when he goes camping during the summer. I am so proud that my dad keeps himself in shape.

Whenever we meet we like to make meals together and talk food. I made my family a delicious lentil soup Saturday for lunch and my sister prepared a lamb stew on Sunday for dinner. There was no turkey on the table but out meal was still delicious. My favorite part of any meal is dessert. I am a baker and can spend hours in the kitchen baking. I baked this Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips. This is the perfect treat after spending a Fall day outside!
