Sooooo, remember when I told you that I went to Caputo’s and they gave me a free bag of bananas? This week, I was walking out the store, and they again asked me if I wanted some free bananas. Sure, I said innocently. And they then put a case of bananas in my cart.
Do you know how many bananas a case is? Any clue? I do now, as the box they provided lists the weight contained therein. Forty pounds. Forty pounds of bananas. That are already ripe.
Needless to say, we’ve been doing a lot of banana in the house — plain bananas, banana smoothies, banana bread, etc. And thanks to Melisa, banana boats!
Raise your hand if you were a Girl Scout and remember making these!
(And boo to Dominick’s for not carrying caramels anymore. Seriously, caramels is a normal food product. Why on earth aren’t they stocked?)
With the peel on, slit the banana lengthwise like you would a baked potato, and then push at the ends to squish it open a little.
Add the caramels at the bottom, then marshmallows, and finally the caramels. (And no, I didn’t follow my own advice, which is why I was trying to scrape caramel off the tin foil after cooking them. Learn from my mistakes.)
Wrap the bananas in tin foil, leaving a little room on top where the yummies inside the banana are poking out. Place the wrapped bananas on the grill and let them cook for about five minutes.
Remove from the grill, take off the foil, and use your spoon to scoop out allllll the yumminess.
Thanks for the reminder. Now, any more suggestions on what to do with the remaining bananas?
