Ginger Banana Bread. I had some overly ripe bananas and remembered the amazing banana bread we had in Hawaii. It was full of ginger. I tried to find it online and ended up combining 4 different recipes with some modifications of my own. I hope it's good. Won't know until tonight at Mark's house.

Miso Soup and Seaweed Salad. This miso soup tastes just like what you get in a Japanese restaurant! I made the seaweed salad because I used too much wakame in the soup and had to remove most of it. That stuff really expands when rehydrated!
