I like cooking banana and choc chip muffins.
Frank likes eating mushy bananas. (Actually he likes eating almost any bananas. I, on the other hand, only eat them within a small window of ripe opportunity. Not too green, not too spotty.)
One cannot cook banana and choc chip muffins without mushy bananas.
Here we have a dilemma. Frank eats the mushy bananas and I never cook the muffins. Until last week, when I fought tooth and nail for the overripe bananas. (That is perhaps an exaggeration)
Every day Frank asked me if I was going to use the bananas. Every day I assured him that they were perfect for cooking, and the longer they were left, the better.
Eventually I baked the muffins. Frank ate them.
Strangely enough, there are now two very ripe bananas sitting in the fruit bowl, and no sign of them being eaten any time soon.
I guess I'm cooking banana and choc chip muffins again soon! Yay!
