This morning, I woke up to find five bananas lying dead and blackened on my kitchen floor. They must have fallen off from the bunch the night before. Without hesitation, I got the ingredients out to make muffins. My 4-year old son, who was with me, gave his take on the situation.
"The bananas all black black ... spoil already. Must throw away."
I had to educate him otherwise. In fact, I told him, they are sweeter when they are all "black black". :)
I went back to the same recipe I had used here, sans the crumb topping. The recipe called for three bananas, but I used all five, so you can imagine how banana-laden my muffins were. They tasted divine, especially fresh out of the oven.
On a separate note, the week-long school break started today, and I'll be having three kids in the house 24/7. Oh, the chaos and noise! No prizes for guessing why this post is so short. Sigh ... school is the best child-minding service ever created. I'll let ya'll know if my sanity is still intact at the end of the week. Hah.
Wishing everyone a restful weekend!
