Banana Bread and Cheesesteak Poboy

I finally went grocery shopping last night,
so now I'll actually cook something good.
Last night, I whipped out my bread maker
that I bought from a garage sale for $2.
At first, I didn't think it worked, because
it wasn't getting hot, but after leaving it on
the full time it's suppose to be on with nothing it
in, I realized that I'm an idiot & it does work.
I've yet to cook anything in it, though.
I have baked 3 loaves of banana bread in my oven.
Last night I found a recipe online and tried
making it in the bread maker, but after
assuming that it didn't work I put it in the oven.
It tasted pretty good, but it was a little chewy.
I don't remember where I got the recipe, but it had
flour, sugar, salt, butter, bananas, & baking powder.
It didn't need baking soda or yeast, which I didn't have.
Like I said, it tasted good, but it was chewy.

Then before lunch today, I made another 2
loaves of banana bread, this time using
bakind soda and dried cranberries as well.
It was one batter, but I wasn't sure how
much it would rise, so I divided it into two.
It didn't rise a whole lot, but I'm glad I made 2
loaves, because I'm going to be giving one away.
Next time, I'll just make one loaf using
that recipe, which is this one and I just
added a handfull of dried cranberries.
I should also note that the only baking that
I've ever done in my life has been from a box.
This was the first time I'd ever made anything from scratch.
It really surprised me that it tasted good. Haha.

For lunch, I made a cheesesteak poboy.
I used Morningstar Farms meal starters steak strips.
I sauteed some green bell pepper and onion, added
the "steak", put it all on a toasted poboy bun, added
cheese, spicy mustard and some tomato (after the photo).
It was definetly one of the best sandwiches I've ever had.

Tonight, I'm making dinner for a myself and a friend,
who is a meat eater, so expect another entry soon.
