Banana Fana

We have discovered a new favorite. We can't get enough. I've traded my junk candy addiction for this...


They're wonderful by themselves...


But they're even better with a little of this.



And all you have to do is peel 'em, cut 'em in half, employ a popsicle stick...freeze for a few hours, pour on the chocolate magic...and wha-la. Instant gratification. (You can even coat them in the chocolate, let it harden, and store them ready to go in the freezer.)

We freeze grapes, too. They are marvelous. An instant escape from summer's heat.

And now, I want to share something my mom sent me a while back. The bottom of the photocopy reads: A message as published in the Wall Street Journal by United Technologies Corporation, Hartford Connecticut 06101.

  7. J! For some reason your recent posts did not come through my feed! So I was delighted to see several I have not read! I think the problem is solved now, phew.

    Love the banana idea. . . there is no HFCS in that chocolate, is there? Just kidding! Everyone deserves a treat. I wonder, though, what else could we use to get a chocolate fix in a more healthy way ...hmmm. If you figure it out, get back to me ;-)

    Love the Most Creative Job in the World! No wonder I feel busy ;-) Isn't it awesome, this job? I think we would be the happiest women in the world if we could really get a hold of this calling and the depth of it.

    Love you!! Have a great weekend
