02.03.08: Sausages and banana bread??

We had a huge Mothering Sunday lunch at Banners, and by the rules o' the blog, we cannot disclose details of any meal but dinner. (Shame, because it was awfully nice. And we saw some celebrities. But we digress...)

He bought some special apple, sage and pork sausages on a whim yesterday, thinking we may have breakfast for dinner tonite, but we were still kind of stuffed (see above). So he cooked them up alone for us to nibble on. However...

...we also had some overripe bananas in the bowl, and that means banana bread, this time using up some storecupboard dried cherries plus crushed pecans and orange zest.

SHE SAYS: The sausages had big pieces of apple in them, extremely more-ish. We'll def. have those again. Warm banana bread gives off possibly the best scent in the world - I almost prefer sniffing it to eating it. Almost. The cherries added a slightly juicy, tangy touch, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy them. Next time I think I'll add lemon zest, too.

HE SAYS: These bangers were the best. The banana bread was a success, but could have done with a touch more sugar. Still, the addition of the cherries and pecans made it more indulgent than usual, and there ain't nothin' wrong with that.
