The most obvious thing to do with overripe bananas is to make banana bread. But I like to try new recipes, so last time our bananas turned brown I made some banana chocolate chip cookies, and they were delicious. I was getting set to revert back to banana bread this weekend, when I stumbled upon this blog with a recipe for honey banana cupcakes - and we all know how I feel about cupcakes. (Not to mention, I've been a little honey obsessed ever since reading The Secret Life of Bees.') I made a vanilla frosting to go with them (I had to substitute soy milk for milk, but it still turned out great). I thought about adding cinammon to the frosting, but wasn't sure if I'd like it, so sprinkled it over half of them instead. They're slightly chewy, but really yummy, and a great compliment to the honey mustard chicken we had for dinner. (Chris even drank a honey brown beer!)
Also, on Saturday I got these little pumpkins to use as a centerpiece on our dining room table, but I feel like something is not quite right about it ... is it the bowl? I'm not sure. I mentioned this to Andrea yesterday, and she suggested I blog about it and take a poll, so ... what do you think?
