Look for the Beauty Within



Oh bananas, I’m so sorry, I had such plans for you. Laying on a bed of grape nuts, enjoying healthy smoothies, a nutritious snack on the way to work. But I let you languish, alone, in the bowl in the corner. I didn’t notice you. I (gulp) forgot. My cruel husband, who frowns on even a single brown speckle, scorned you a week ago as long past your prime. Don’t despair - I can, I will, I must make it up to you. There’s still time for us…



Banana Cake!

Adapted from this recipe to include extra chocolate instead of those pesky potentially healthy walnuts. Great to bring if you’re a dinner guest because your hosts can store it and eat it for breakfast the next day rather than feeling obligated to serve it that night. If gifting, decorate the top with drizzles of melted chocolate.

Now those are my kind of bananas! You know, they say once you go black, you never go back.

Haha s'kat!

I'm with Mr. Raisinhater on this one - I hate any spots on my bananas. I Frown on Brown! :)

Joe has this habit of taking old mush icky bananas and freezing them, and then putting them in things and not telling me until after I've eaten it and commented how good it was...

"So you like those black bananas, huh?"

Grrrr....

Black bananas are my favourite precisely because gross + mushy = excuse to bake. Definitely worth the slightly rank odour in the compost. Yours is a fine specimen...
