I get home from grocery shopping today and sent my husband out to haul in groceries. He walks in with the first load and says, “Are there a bunch of monkeys coming to live with us?” Haha. Poor man, his wife is crazy.
He found 63 pounds of ripe bananas in the back of the car. I paid $7 for the whole bunch (that’s only 11 cents a pound!). My local QFC had a serious surplus of bananas this morning and I could buy a few bunches at $0.38/lb or I could buy an entire case for about $7. I thought the case had about 20 pounds in it – um, more like 63 pounds!?
Now I’m starting to have second thoughts. What on earth am I going to do with all these bananas? My daughter ate two on the car ride home and it didn’t even leave a dent. Of course I’ll be making banana bread. I’d love recipe ideas that I can freeze – to spread the banana love over many weeks.
I’d love your help. What would you do with 63 pounds of very ripe bananas?
