last week i read a book to sam titled, " i love you stinky face," and in it, there is a reference to a banana cake that the mom would make if the kid happened to be a big, scary, gorilla. so sam woke up the next morning really wanting to make a "nana" cake. i had some overly ripe bananas i needed to do something with so i thought it would be fun. sam loves to be a "good cook and helper" in the kitchen. he was so excited for this cake. i am not sure if it was as good as he was hoping because he never asked for a second piece. the cake looked exactly as it does in the picture 3 days later when I threw it out. oh well, the best part was making it!
