The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

old bananas.

My goal while Chad is gone this week and I am home is to not eat out the entire time and eat up some of the weird, random things in the pantry and freezer. This is not only an effort to save money but to also make some room to do some serious grocery shopping when he gets back/when we get back from our trip in a few weeks. We love bananas but tend to quickly eat all but one and it sits on the counter until it turns a funny/gross color. Today, in admiring what was in the freezer, I realized that I had at least 6 frozen bananas waiting to make something yummy. I had been meaning to make banana bread for a while so I did that and it is currently baking and making my kitchen smell a-maz-ing. I will enjoy this for breakfast this week - a slice on the way to the gym should get me through my workout to my cereal.

I also found another recipe on a blog/website that I linked to from P-Dub's Tasty Kitchen website. This recipe is for banana ice cream - except it is just frozen bananas and milk. Since my fruit was already frozen, I thought "why not??". Again - amazing. And it used up another three of my frozen bananas so now I only have to figure out what to do with two more!!
