MIMM#4 Rainy day w/ chocolate chip banana bread + list of activities!

Even though it’s pouring here, it is still a Marvelous Monday!
Even when it rains, you can make your OWN day full of sunshine if you chose too!
I wanted to brighten up this gloomy day with some baking.

MiMM MIMM with just Some Marvelous TidbitsIMG_3901

The rest of the week is looking like it’s going to be the same.

We just got back from errands with a stop at TJ.
I couldn’t wait to try their banana bread.

{Rainy days are perfect for baking}

Rain rain go away.

SIDE NOTE ….. I love tjs samples! MANGO SORBET- yum!}

To spice it up I added some chocolate chips into the middle layer so once you cut it you have a nice treat in the center 🙂 and topped with coconut shaving! Nice flavoring!IMG_3902
Final product:

  1. I wish we had a TJ’s where I live! Posts like this make me so jealous.

    I love the way you took a basic banana bread and made it look so pretty with a couple of small garnishes.

    Also, I’m just as guilty as being a Froyo addict. It’s the best!

    • I love addicting a little flare to something to make it a little extra special.. the chocolate chips were a great contribution to the bread 🙂

      Ahh froyo is so addicting! esp in the summer. its the best treat/ thing to go do.

      thanks for stopping by the blog!!xoxo

  2. i don’t need rainy days as an excuse to do those things, it’s summer 😀 the banana bread looks divine, i like the chocolate chip + coconut additions! and trader joes DOES have the best samples 🙂

    • very true! I guess when it’s nicer out, I tend to neglect those areas 🙂

      I was starving right before we got to TJs and I joked to my husband that we had to hurry so I could eat a lot of samples 😛 I also tried their pizza veggie burger, was delish!
