I am trying hard to eat healthier, and since I'm the cook in the family, the hub and kids are eating a little healthier now too. They don't always like the extra veggies on their plate but they don't complain all that much (anymore!).
This morning I saw that we had bought too many bananas last weekend, and there were 8 overripe ones left in the fruit bowl. Since we were invited to a graduation party, I decided to make one of the kid's favorite treats to take to the party: banana bread with walnuts and white chocolate, baked as muffins. I made a double batch and was happy to empty the fruit bowl of all the bananas.
The muffins went over pretty well at home - both the hub and the kid gobbled some. And they went over pretty well at the party; we took a bowlful over and almost all were gone when we left. I ate only about one tablespoon worth of muffin because they're not as healthy as what I'm aiming for these days.
Now I'm sitting here wondering if it's hypocritical of me to make food for others that I feel I shouldn't eat myself. I've been doing that a lot the last half year. Maybe I should only make healthy things for others that I would eat. (But then they won't enjoy the food I make!) I'm reminded of a couple of months ago, when someone at work stopped by my desk to give me a home-made thank-you muffin. It was super-healthy, full of bran and whole wheat and seeds and ... it was really awful.
I know I'm over-thinking. Too much time on a quiet Saturday night! I guess I should just be glad the muffins went so quickly and I didn't have to toss out the bananas. Of course, anything goes down a lot easier with white chocolate morsels!
