“Is it just my household, or does anyone else buy a bunch of bananas with the best intentions of eating them before they get a squick of brown on them only to find them all soft and mushy behind the loaf of bread and sweet potatoes? No? Just me then, eh? What’s the natural progression of a bunch of very ripe bananas? Make Banana bread! But I also had zucchini that needed to be eaten, two packages of opened chocolate chips, yet only had two eggs, and not enough sugar. What’s a Foodie to do? Improvise.”
