Last night before I went to bed I found something sad in the back of the fruit drawer…
A BLACK [not brown, it’s beyond that stage] BANANA. It was a TRAGIC scene! We usually keep the bananas in a big fruit bowl on the counter but once they start browning, I toss them into the fruit drawer. Unfortunately, I guess I forgot about the bananas. Not only had the banana turned black, I could feel that it was turning mushy.
I woke up this morning thinking of what I could make using a black banana. I don’t think I’ve ever planned a meal around a black banana… Maybe banana bread? French toast- no. Pancakes- no. Waffles- no. Oatmeal- no. Cereal- yes! A mumbo-jumbo, cereal bowl sounded perfect!
OH EM GEE! Cereal + cinnamon + mushy banana + vanilla milk = delicious 😀 The mix kind of reminded me of a banana split- the mushy, gushy, gooey pockets of banana were definitely the star of the meal! Sometimes the simplest things in life are the sweetest 😀 I also think the banana would have tasted delicious smushed on top of french toast, pancakes, or waffles [I was just too lazy to make some]!
Food for thought: Don’t judge a book by its cover… Errr, don’t judge a banana by its peel!
P.S. Happy birthday to my twinsie!
Happy Birthday Twinsie! I can’t wait to celebrate tonight 😀
Question: Do you have a “twinsie”? No, we are not sisters by birth- we call each other twinsie because we have so many things in common, besides sharing a pretty cool name 😉
Question: Have you ever eaten a black banana? What did you make using it?
