I always have leftover bananas.
Is this a problem for anyone else out there?
I think most of my problem is, that while I love bananas, I only eat them at a certain stage.
As in the green stage.
Not bright green, but absolutely NO black marks yet.
They have to be greenish-yellow and no marks.
So, this is maybe why I always have a ton of bananas that I don't deem good enough to eat.
But the upside is that I'm always trying new recipes for overripe bananas and coming up with some pretty good ones :)
