Keith and I like to eat bananas. They are a relatively healthy food that we consider to be fairly yummy. We consume quite a few bananas every week and always have some around. Being as we are trying to be much more cost-conscious recently, we decided to to try the bananas from Costco. It makes sense-a greater quantity of bananas at a seemingly great price. No! They fool you!
Bananas at Costco are green. Lime green. Not a normal color of banana. We thought this meant they would ripen in a few days and be ready to eat. Not so, my friend. The bananas went directly from the shocking shade of green to brown. No stop at yellow in between either. So what do you do when you have bananas that look like this?
Throw them out? No! Compost? No! Banana bread? Heck yes! I made banana bread and it was super yummy. As the saying goes, when life hands you lemons, make lemonade...or if you buy bad bananas, make some fabulous banana bread.
