I recently had the girls over to lunch and the theme
was 'Going Bananas!' It helped that my backyard
bananas had ripened ( LOL) so there were three dishes
that had the flavour of the day!
The photo is of one of the three banana cakes that I
baked with coffee and chocolate swirls. The trifle
pudding also had generous pieces of banana cake topped
with home-made banana liqueur!
Since it's always good to get together ( after all, it
doesn't happen often), 'going bananas' is an apt theme.
It reflects the mood of the moment, looking forward to
'catching up' and enjoying the dishes that'd certainly
taken time to be planned and prepared. And if not the
fruit-based recipes, don't we go bananas about other
things/interests in our day to day lives?
