Samosas are one of those things in Indian culture that you will find all over the country. North, East, South, West. No joke…in every corner of India, it’s a very common snack that’s served up with tea when you guests over. It was time for me to come up with a recipe that was fast and easy to serve up when I also had guests over!

Happy Friday friends! It’s been a long 9 days around here while I was handling the kids all by myself, and the hubs was traveling, but he comes back tonight and I couldn’t be more excited!!! Hello sleep! =) Any other mamas out their who have traveling husbands and basically cringe right when they bring up their upcoming travel? I feel like every time he brings it up, I run in the opposite direction, hide in the closet, and just start chugging wine. #nojudgies

Anywaaaaay…let’s move on shall we?? Ok, so real talk. We are fully guilty of buying bananas and then all of them not getting eaten because everyone in my household despises any banana that has spots on it. Too mushy…too sweet…You name it, there’s something wrong with that spotty banana. But, they were getting thrown away far too often. Or I would be the sucker in the house that would have to eat it and I hate a mushy, extra yellow banana. So to save myself from eating a dying banana, I knew I had to come up with a way to use them. Enter cinnamon banana bread!

It’s summer. I know it..you know it, and it can be dreadful some days. It basically means that we need quick meals and snacks to last these long days because after watching yet another episode of Dora the Explorer, doing 80 crafts, hitting the splash pads, and lots of “mama play with me!!”, I’m basically drained and can’t even think of making a giant meal for everyone! So I had to think of things I could whip up super fast to get something in those grumbling tummies!

It’s Sunday, which normally means a lot of meal prepping for the week ahead, and making sure we have a smooth one! Hectic weeks are always the norm around here anyway with lots of activities, work, and the craziness that ensues with having a 2 and a 3 year old! So I like to stay ahead of the game and plan my meals and healthy snacks before that #manicmonday rolls around!
