But we found out just the other day. And it wasn't pretty.
Apparently a few hours in a car when the weather falls below 30ºF causes bananas to blacken and turn a bit... well, mushy. Kinda like storing them in the refrigerator.
We just happened to have a quart of eggnog leftover from the holidays. We also happened to possess some unusually beautiful (and tasty) pecans. So, we decided to whip up something wonderful with our blackened bananas... pancakes anyone??
(You'll note that one small bunch of bananas managed to make it into the house with us... and they served as our banana models while the mushy batch ended up in the pancake batter).
Or, if you're like me, you can serve them up with a bunch of extra bananas and a bit of syrup.
Either way, as a result of our misfortune, you too can take a dark, mushy situation and turn it into something positively delicious! Just perfect for a bit of breakfast on New Year's Day!

May this be just the beginning of all that is delicious in 2010!
