Well, enough chit chat, lets get on to the good stuff! Banana Bread!! I love banana bread, and this is by far my favorite recipe. It comes from my great aunt, and it is unbelievably easy to make.

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup sour milk
1/2 cup nuts

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a loaf pan. Mix all ingredients well, pour into pan and bake 1 hour. Let cool 10 min, then remove from pan to cool completely. Store in an air tight container to keep moist.
