Spot a Banana

Abe won’t eat bananas the second they have spots on them – that’s when I start liking them!


Devoured one in between meetings all day, came home to walk Julius and eat more fruit…


…then threw together a late afternoon meal, with the help of Trader Joe’s Corn and Chile Tomato-less Salsa…


…and Tomato-Basil Hummus. (Also in the bowl – Kale, Spinach, Turkey, and Coconut Cashews.)


An Arctic Zero bar before heading out for my first acting class with Nick – he brought some yummy-looking macaroons but I didn’t wind up eating any.

    My husband and I are like that so he eats them first, then I take over. Any I don’t eat go into the freezer for baking.

    Learned from Momofuku Milk Bar Chef/Owner Christina Tosi via “Mind of a Chef” PBS show that bananas with black skin are perfect to use to make banana cream pie (with a chocolate crust).

    I’m with Abe on this one. I like bananas when they are not yet spotty- just bright yellow and barely ripe. Something about the texture and tannic flavor of ripe bananas turns me off.

    Just like with pork and foie gras (well, basically all meat), Abe is wrong about bananas. The one pictured could ripen a little more to be perfect for eating (though if I had a bunch, that would be the time to start eating them).
