Super Saturday recipe: do you have any old squashy bananas?

Do you have any old squashy bananas, too yucky for anything but the bin, you  say?  Don't toss them!  Use them in this time-honored, super easy (I'm typing this without reference to a recipe card!) fergusandme family recipe.  One teenage member of our household who shall remain nameless can eat an entire loaf in one go, and "accidentally" eats the little loaves we make for our neighbors . . . it's that good, so here goes!

Mix in order given:
1/2 cup butter or margarine (we use smart balance sticks), softened in the microwave
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda in 1 tablespoon of hot water
3 mashed or disintegrating bananas
optional 1/2 cup walnuts
pour into oiled loaf pan(s), half full-ish
bake at 350F for approximately 45 minutes
when a fork comes out clean, it's done!
feel free to double the recipe :)

make this for breakfast tomorrow morning!  it's delicious!
