I really like bananas. They are tasty, they go well with some of my other favorite things, coffee and oatmeal, and they are yellow which I appreciate.
Mark does not like bananas. He doesn’t like it when we purchase bananas, even if they are for me and he does not have to eat them.
Sometimes when we get bananas I eat all of them. But when we get them at Costco, even though they are an excellent deal, I have a hard time eating 15 bananas before they go bad. (I said I really like bananas – I am not a crazy bananas for every meal person!). So I needed to find a way to get Mark to eat bananas with me. Kinda like the zucchini situation. Unlike zucchini, I could not shred a banana into his lasagna. I don’t think. If you have successfully made banana lasagna let me know.
In any case banana bread it was. But Mark doesn’t even like banana bread so I had to find something that was enough like cinnamon bread that he would go for it. Ta-da! Banana bread with Mark’s stamp of approval. I used this recipe, but I didn’t have milk so I used vanilla creamer (don’t worry it worked), and added a little bit of nutmeg.
I was so excited to go to the fair and bring our fun camera and extra lens. BUT then I left the battery sitting in the charger! And I didn’t realize it until we got there and I tried to take a picture of a cow. Oops! So fair pictures are with Mark’s iPhone. Which actually takes pretty awesome photos for a cell phone. For a cell phone. So that’s why some of these are a bit grainy.
I am pretty sure fair food is the same everywhere. Fried. Greasy. Best if served on a stick. But Northern California has rows upon rows of fair food. And the Stanislaus County Fair had all the delicious, greasy food we could hope for. And according to my pictures absolutely EVERYTHING is over-sized and on a stick. My skin felt gross almost immediately, but it was so tasty it was worth it! At least for one night.
Exhibit 1: Monster Corn Dog (even though Mark and I both took pictures with it, we actually split just one – and it was plenty!
Even the fries were huge!!
I had my first frozen banana ever. I have no idea why I never tried these before. It was SO good!
