Mother’s Day Weekend and a Banana Bread Oatmeal Cake Recipe

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was pretty great, filled with delicious food and relaxing fun with friends and family. It started early for me – since I had my last final exam on Wednesday, I was able to take the train out to Connecticut early and beat the Friday evening rush. Metro North is okay as far as public transit goes (comfier than the subway, at least; I can’t pass judgment on any other metro area systems since it’s the only one I really know!) Normally a train is just something to take out of Grand Central, but if it’s daylight I sometimes leave from the Harlem station since it’s also convenient from the Upper East Side. That morning, it was sunny and bright, and you could see all the way to the new tower on Park Avenue that’s taken shape over the past several months.
