This is definitely more on the PSA side of things instead of the quirky side, although I’ve gotta love the little cartoon pictures used to show just how much we’re overdoing it in the sugar department. I don’t personally consume nearly that much, but I’m betting some of you are pushing it, huh?
Enjoy the reality check:
Why didn’t I think of this??
Obviously that’s great for sugar, but similar to the parmesan shaker top idea, think of all the other things you could use this for. Maybe for creamer, too? Or one of either of these tops would work well to keep some flour in to dust your counter top when rolling doughs and whatnot.
Now that Nablopomo is over, I figure it’s time to get back to posting more of the projects and foods I’ve made myself. I’m constantly talking about things I’ve done before, go to find the link, and realize that I never got around to posting about it. Bleh.
These fried bananas are ones I actually forgot about, which is funny, because my forgetfulness is what led to them in the first place. I kept buying a single plantain with the intent of us getting to try fried plantains, only to then forget it bought it until long after it’d gone soft, black, and
furry slimy nasty.
How’d I make them? I, uh, winged it. I sliced the bananas, tossed them with a combination of flour and cinnamon, and then fried them in a pan, likely with butter.
Wait, no, looks like oil. *Eyes the right-hand side of the photo* Yep, oil.
I don’t remember what I did when I was winging it. Don’t judge. That’s what the pictures are for…to remind me how I did something. :P
Anyyywaaaayyyy….cinnamon toast. Butter, sugar, cinnamon on bread in the broiler. Complicated, I know.
I tried to be all technical and precise by lining a certain number of slices on each piece of bread for a picture. But really, that’s ugly and unappetizing.
Piling it on was much, much better.
Because I was winging it, I accidentally overcompensated for the sweetness of the bananas, thinking the toast and bananas should both be unsweetened. Turns out, they weren’t really sweet enough, so I sprinkled a little sugar on top. Kids loved it.
