Sunday Afternoon

My baby girl is taking a nap and Devin is watching golf before he has to leave for some meetings. I've got three ripe bananas so decide to make a few batches of banana bread. Not much better on a cool Sunday afternoon than warm banana bread!

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup ripe mashed bananas (I use 3)
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
chopped nuts (optional)
chocolate chips (optional)

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, lemon juice and banana. Add flour and baking powder. Mix well and add the rest of (optional) ingredients. Pour into loaf pants and bake at 350 for approx 35-40 minutes. Test with tooth pick inserted into center for doneness. Remove from pan and cool before slicing.
