From pinned to practice: banana "sushi"
We were away for the long weekend (which also meant that Friday/Tuesday were mostly consumed with packing and unpacking), so I've only tried out one new pin in the past week:
It seems like such an easy and delicious idea - take a banana, cover it with peanut butter, roll it in Rice Krispies and cut it into pieces.
Delicious, it was. Peanut butter and banana is always a good combo, but I really like the added crunch of the Rice Krispies. The kids thought it was really good too.
Easy, it was not. Or maybe I should just say that it was really, really messy. Trying to spread an entire banana with peanut butter was tricky. There was peanut butter everywhere (the second time I tried it, I broke the banana in half first, and it was slightly less messy). Then trying to roll it in the Rice Krispies also made a mess. And it was messy to eat (maybe eating with a fork or putting little toothpicks in each piece would make it better??).
But it was good.
And you know what would likely be AMAZING???
Nutella instead of peanut butter.
