By now, you know I am a cheapskate. I really dislike spending money, even on things we need! So the other day I ran to the store and found bananas on sale for super cheap (30 cents per pound!), so I bought about 7 pounds. I really should have gotten more -I don't know why I didn't! I knew there was no way my family would eat that many bananas before they went bad, but I bought them with the intention of dehydrating them.
Flower loves banana chips. I have to make her stop eating them, but, at least they are healthy! Little Man likes them occasionally. Barb Wire Man doesn't love them, but I still like to keep them around. When I make him trail mix to take in the semi, I can toss a few in there. I can at least try to get him to eat healthy!
Early Saturday morning, Little Man and I started getting them ready. He really doesn't care for fresh bananas as a snack, he just loves to peel them, so that was his job. Who would have thought that giving a little boy 7 pounds of bananas to peel would keep him entertain for an hour?! I sliced them up and put them on the dehydrator racks, sprinkled them with cinnamon, then turned on the machine.
I figured they would be finished by bedtime.
Here is is, nearly 9:00 in the morning on Sunday, and they are still not finished. Good grief...what's the deal with these bananas!? I still have 4 pounds of apples to turn into apple chips!
At least the house smells delicious! What is your favorite thing to do make with bananas?
Be blessed today
