Ask my family... Come to my door and you are invited inside.... It is the American way.
Right? Wait, what happened?
For the past two years I have been trying to meet our neighbors. It is gotten easier now, with the pandemic, people are home.
So, every week, maybe twice a week I bake Banana bread. Not just any banana bread, this is called Hippy banana bread. I tried it because I had all the ingredients on hand and it is good. Really good. After the 3 mashed bananas, you add walnuts, craisins, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and I also add sesame seeds and a little flax.
So it is like eating a little meal
Several neighbors live alone, so they love having someone at the door with a little treat. A little loaf is also a small, but great, way to say thank you to the neighbors who have gone shopping for us. There are many reasons to share a little banana bread.
Something I have realized... rarely does anyone pause to chat, or invite you in.
I discovered this because last week, a neighbor invited me inside and offered me coffee ! Wait, two neighbors invited me in for coffee.
So, that is the American way...or maybe it is the Scandinavian way.
