Friday Firsts - Baby Bananas
Happy Friday everybody! (Click the button if you need more information on Friday Firsts!) In the words of Pioneer Woman "Has this week been particularly crazy, hectic, bizarre, frenzied, and nuts…or is it just me?" It flew by for me, which in terms of getting homework done isn't always the best thing! We had a pretty uneventful Memorial Day because Johnny came down with a man-cold, so we just hung out at home and ordered take-out ribs from The Patio, a Chicagoland chain.
My first for this week are Baby Bananas! I've never had these before, but was inspired to try them when I saw them under the regular bananas. They came really green in a little plastic bag that said it was important for their environment to ripen until they were yellow.
The bag said the best way to enjoy them was by peeling from the bottom, so who was I to argue? To be honest, I couldn't tell that much of a difference between these and a normal banana. They're supposed to have a more concentrated taste, according to the package. I like mine still a little green, so perhaps if I let them ripen all the way they'll be sweeter? Otherwise I think I'll just stick to regular bananas!
Now it's your turn to tell me about your first! To participate in Friday Firsts create a blog post featuring a "first" of yours. Next, link that blog post below and tell us about it!
