      I was looking over at my bunch of bananas sitting on the table, contemplating whether I had enough time this morning before going to work to make them. NOM NOM NOM. Alas, they're still a bit green, so not quite ripe enough. Perhaps I'll make them tomorrow. These look *delicious* - YUM!!! Thanks for writing this! Bookmarking so I can storm the kitchen tomorrow morning. :D
