When The Bananas Are Frozen

He had decided weeks before that Banana Bread was going to be a gift to a few family members, so the overripe bananas were placed safely in the freezer for the yet to come baking marathon.

So someone forgot, as they often do at 14, to grab the bananas out of the freezer.

I told him it would be fine, by the time we worked on some other projects they should be ready.

He must not have believed me, because not too many minutes later I hear a noise from the kitchen. I peak around the corner and, bless his heart, impatience and innovation had kicked in . . .



Not sure why he was turning himself upside down...

Smiles!

I can see myself having done something like that at the same age. Or maybe last week. I haven't matured all that much...

I hope they turned out OK. Now here I was thinking that bananas were one of the things that you must never freeze!
Happy 2011. May it be good to you and yours.

Now that's adorable! My older one would have done the same thing at that age. Too cute.

It is always the thought that counts with a gift, and this one had some lovely thoughts.

I'm impressed that a 14yo would follow through and find a way to make it work! Congratulations on your POTW.

Oh, that is so funny! Funny but also incredibly clever! You'll have to show this to him about ten years from now.

A hair dryer is a common kitchen utensil in my house. It comes in handy to dry the freshly washed grapes before they go into the grape salad. :)
