Midnight Chef

#2 Son, a/k/a The Midnight Chef, has struck again.

I came down this morning to the smell of spices, batter in every nook and cranny of the sink faucets, the mini loaf pan put away greasy, and all of the batter crusted implements stuffed into the dishwasher, even the ones that don't fit without blocking the sprayer arms.

At least he tried.

My kitchen also smells wonderful. Now I need to put nutmeg on my grocery list.

Home baked banana bread, anyone?
