Menu plan for the week of June 15

This never happens, y'all.  Our bananas almost never get to the point of becoming more ripe than the ripeness at which people want to eat them.  In fact, I buy bananas every Tuesday, and they're usually gone by Saturday.  But the little person, who is the most prolific banana eater, got braces, and decided it was too hard to eat bananas.

I don't know.  I feel like bananas are pretty easy to eat, even with braces.

Regardless, we have four bananas that are almost too ripe for anything other than baking or smoothies.  Whatever shall we do?

In other banana news, the big person bought a bread machine, because he's an adult and adults do things like buy bread machines.  And one of the suggested recipes in the owner's manual (which may or may not be the correct manual* for his particular machine, because he never got around to comparing model numbers) is banana bread.  But it's not banana bread as I have always made it, as a quick bread.  It is banana bread with yeast.  It's a yeast banana bread.  Have you ever heard of a banana bread recipe that uses yeast?  So strange, but also, why not?  People use mashed bananas to substitute for fat in baking sometimes, so...

Anyway, AKD decided that was the recipe he wanted to make to test the machine and it turned out really good.  It looked good.  It smelled good.  It tasted good.  He was so tickled, and has proceeded to eat it for just about every meal since.

Here's what's on the menu this week:


  • Grilled chicken with Caesar salad
  • Tacos, taco toppings
  • Pasties (from the freezer), beef gravy
  • Leftovers
  • Hamburgers, buns, chips, corn or carrots
  • Grilled pizza, salad
  • Grilled pork chops, mashed potatoes, grilled green veggie


  • Something with bananas

* He bought the bread machine used, and found the manual online.
