A Big Mystery!

Hello Friends and Neighbors.

I was working on a post for tomorrow when I came across the photo you see here. Carole took it not long ago to document what she calls one of my little obsessions. She says the picture speaks for itself. What do you think?

Later today I'll post something that will make her soooo wrong!

    I think it's time to bake a whole lot of banana bread.

    OMG! At least, when they get to be in this state, they don't stink any longer. The other day, I bought some bananas and soon after, noticed a strong smell of stinking disgusting sweaty feet. I couldn't figure out what it was and finally found out that when the bananas get out of the fridge, or wherever it is that they keep them before they sell them to you, they smell of sweaty feet and it takes some airing before they smell like a tasty banana.
    Live and learn ;)

    I LOVE BANANAS...but not when they get to this state. The sad thing is...many times they DO get to this state because I don't eat them fast enough. I get a little upset with myself every time, but it continues to happen. Now, I just buy a small amount at a time...I don't feel so wasteful. Yeah, I think banana bread's the answer.

    I vote for banana daiquiris. The alcohol will kill any mold...

    My website is frozen. I got disgusted and set up my own domain at a new host. Please see new content at Miss Cellania. Thanks!

    I guess you go along with the Florida saying, "We don't buy green bananas." (we might not be around tomorrow)

    hehehehe.. that is so funny. But.. I will tell you what I do with my over ripe bananas. I love to make smoothie drinks with skim milk. I cut the overripe bananas into chunks, put them into little bags and stick them in the freezer. Instead of using ice cubes to make a smoothie.. I use frozen banana pieces. Add a little yogart, or vanilla flavouring and you have one very tasty and nutritious drink.

    I buy bananas every time I go to the grocery, they are great for hangovers. And my Aunt used to use brown bananas for banana bread. You have enough there for quite a bit of bread....send me some, please!!

    My husband is the one who comes home with the bargain bananas if he goes to the store ... "I know this looks like a lot, but they were on sale, and I could get all of these compared to just a few regular bananas. Even if we have to throw some out, we're saving money in the long run."

    The problem with that is, when I grew up you learned NOT to throw out any food, not to waste it. So, presents a real dilemna for me.

    Can only make so much banana bread, but will try that recipe next time, Lucy. Am going to try Simply Coll's idea, too.

    Smelly feet??? Yuck! I never knew that before. Am always learning something new.

    Hi there, came by chance to your blog and liked it. As for the bananas ... I like to eat them in this state; most sweet and a bit alcoholic.

    I'm reading this AFTER seeing the banana bread. I'm sure that's what you had in mind all along. Right? :)
    I can't eat a banana once it has brown on it. Yucky!

    A word of warning: I made banana bread with some highly marginal bananas (a tad older than these, really on the cusp). I ate too much of it (luckily couldn't entice anyone else to eat some) and six hours later broke out in masses of hives. Four days later, after suffering swollen hands, wrists and lips in addition to my hands, I'm now coming off the reaction with the help of prescription antihistimines and cortisteroids. I am, for the recond, a veteran banana bread maker and I've never had this kind of reaction before. I do suspect the bananas were beyond usable. So be careful! I'd be interested to know if anyone else has suffered this kind of thing.
