What have I gotten myself into???
One of the things that I keep my eyes out for when I'm grocery shopping is a store special on over-ripe bananas. I can usually get bananas at 25 cent / pound on these specials. I take them home, peel them, put 2 - 3 in a quart ziplock, mash them, squeeze the air out, and freeze. I use these for banana pancakes and banana bread. My kids go nuts for both.
When we moved to OK, PeppA, my other half, started working at an ice-cream / hamburger / grocery store. I've worked for this company in the past, and like their products.
They started selling more "grocery" items in the past few years. I'm not surprised that they sell bananas, as this company uses bananas for banana splits.
A few days ago, PeppA bought home a couple bunches of over-ripe bananas that she picked up on discount. I did my usual and mashed/froze them, and have made a couple batches of banana pancakes, and even a loaf of banana bread a couple days ago.
PeppA must have bragged about the banana bread to her co-workers. Yesterday, she came home with 14 POUNDS of bananas! I now have 11 qt-size ziplock baggies in the freezer, most with 3 bananas, so with 2. I also have two orders for banana bread from her co-workers.
I just ran a search on the HDD for the laptop. I came up with 53 recipes that call for bananas. I guess I'm going to be doing some cooking today and tomorrow.
