It’s day number two of nearly 100 degree weather in Philly. I think this is the worst thing in the world.
And, with the clarity of a corporate blackberry camera and the photojournalism skills of a writer, I give you a heat tour of my walk from work to home in Philly.
Which means that no one wants to cook. Or eat anything other than ice for that matter.
The home-made solution to this predicament?
Frozen Banana Bites (idea stolen from BA)
Basically, melt some chocolate with a little bit of oil. (Ratio: 1 cup chocolate to 1 Tbs. vegetable oil)
Dunk in a slice of banana and coat it. Fish it out with a fork and let some of the excess fall off.
Then, roll it around in something that goes well with chocolate and banana (i.e., coconut, oreos, peanuts, skor bits, etc. ).
Put the completed slices onto some parchment paper, then pop them in the freezer for a few hours. (Put them in a sealed container after you’ve frozen them if you intend to store them in the freezer for any length of time.)
They taste like summer, but are lovely and cold. Can’t think of anything better for dinner tonight.
