    I Also Catch My Fish, And I Even Dig Up My Carrots!

    Now what can the subject be? Life is full of absurd mundanities. I speak English fairly well, and I am French! I even like the English, they provide me lots of work with their houses here, and their apartements. I am doing well, but those bananas!

    Weird

    I am weird about bananas. They cannot have blemishes nor can they be mushy; they have to be firm and yellow. When I peel off the peeling however I have to throw it away because if I smell the peeling I get sick and cannot eat the flesh inside.

    My Son Ate The Peel One Time.

    I find it helps digestion

    and improves flavour. I also like to slice it by inserting a pin and wiggling it. I then peel the banana and it is sliced inside. Amuses small children and adults alike!

    I tried eating it with the peel on

    and DAMN! it tastes bad. I guess I'll have to keep peeling them before I eat bananas, or not eat them at all. Oh well. . .

    Chocolate Bananas Well,

    of course the bananas are peeled first. The chocolate sticks better that way.

    My Bananas

    I have to say I enjoy my bananas peeled...although once I enjoyed one not peeled. Quite wonderful in fact, once you get past the texture :)

    A Good Rule Of Thumb

    Either way, it will be fine, except for the pesticides and tarantula germs that are incidentally ALL OVER banana peels.
