My new discovery

So, in the time I was gone I didn't get a chance to mention my new favorite food. Frozen bananas, no really frozen bananas are great. Also, they are simple to prepare, just peel a banana and put it in your freezer for a couple of hours (please note that peeling the banana is essential because otherwise you have to take off a frozen peel with a knife and that leads to both cold hands and possibly self-inflicted knife wounds which is not a good outcome). Presto, one very good frozen snack which is all creamy and delicious. I admit that this is an idea lots of other people have had and I am probably leaping on the bandwagon late in the day. However, I was so impressed with my first frozen banana snack that I had a minor freakout where I was convinced I was eating some kind of 900 calorie desert extravaganza. Fortunately, shortly thereafter I came to my senses and realized that in fact I had just eating a single banana which is one of my standard afternoon snacks and it was the fact that it was frozen which made it especially good as opposed to a high calorie count. I may try to expand the experience into other frozen fruits but I am not sure that they will have the creamy goodness of a banana when frozen, I will have to see what I think and then report back.
