I always have bananas onhand, why? Cause I am addicted to them. I like them before they're fully ripe, I like that when they're ripe and I even love them with they're overripe. Non the less, there's just something not too appetizing about eating bananas that have gone beyond overripe. Here is what I did with the double B's (blackened bananas):
Caramel & coconut topped banana loaf:
4 tbs butter, melted
3 bananas mashed
2/3 cup of sugar
Combine above ingredients in 1 bowl
1 Cup all purpose flour
1/3 Cup whole wheat flour
3/4 ts salt
1/2 ts baking soda
1/4 ts baking powder
1/2 ts cinnamon
Combine above ingredients together in a large bowl
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix till combined.
Then add 1/3 cup of shredded & sweetened coconut.
Pour batter into greased loaf pan then top with caramel chocolate chips and more shredded coconut and bake at 350 degrees F for 50 minutes and you have this:
It tastes alot better the day after and the longer it sits since it is partly whole wheat, giving the wheat time to absorb the flavor of the bananas. Emmmmmmm...
I was surprised to see that Neil didn't dispose of the whole turkey. I was rather disappointed at the amount that he ate; I thought I was in for another Margarita night at Jims where Neil ate a 2 pound piece of steak, 3 brats, a bag of chips and goodness knows what else he got his hands on. He did however make a purty good Princeton. Renee and I sipped on that during appetizers.
After that we layed around like a bunch of couch potatos, too full to move. Around 5:30ish we went for a walk up to the hindu temple across the street and then came back and started on desert: Apple pie (made by miss renee), pecan pie (made by Neils mom) and my pumpkin pie and cheesecake:
Sorry for the blurriness
Then it was on to the Turbo Cranium challenge. Girls vs. Boys. How that was even a competition I do not know, since the boys crashed and burned!!!! HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEEHEE. And that my friends was our thanksgiving.
