What is it with the weather lately? All weekend it was cold, damp and rainy here. The kids were stuck inside and were running out of things to do so we baked! Needing a little tropical, warm weather I decided to make a tropical infused banana bread. This Coconut Rum Banana Bread hit the spot but actually just made me want the tropics more!
On Saturday night my husband and I had a date night together to attend a friends wedding. We got all dressed up, I had my hair done and we were kid-less. A perfect night to be all romantic and lovey-dovey! I always get so emotional at weddings too. They’re a great reminder of the commitment you made with your spouse and the love you have between each other.
The wedding took place at 6:44 p.m. on Saturday night so there was no sit-down dinner. Instead they had a huge assortment of appetizers. Poutine (my fav!), pizza, pulled pork, veggies and dip, mini beef and chicken sliders and a big dessert table full of candy, tarts, cookies and a chocolate fondue. I actually liked it way better because I got to nibble on everything I liked and didn’t get too full. It was a great idea and gave people lots of time for mingling and chatting.
The newlyweds are off to Hawaii this week for their honeymoon so they’ll be basking in the tropical weather that I’ve been craving. I’ll be here enjoying my tropical Coconut Rum Banana Bread while it snows outside….at least that’s what the forecast is calling for tonight!
What’s the weather like where you live?
P.S. Make sure to come back on Thursday because I have 2 giveaways for you!
