And here's what he looked like on the inside - not too bad, I say:
And here's what I usually do with over-ripe bananas (the "fresh" banana is what you see mashed in the measuring cup) whenever I get a supply (one store will sell them for $.29/lb, so I stocked up a while back) :
Yes, that is mashed, over-ripe banana, pre-measured out in a Ziploc that I had frozen. And yes, the date you see is correct - 2 years ago. They made some really yummy muffins, I tell ya!
After the muffins were cooled, I bagged each muffin into a fold-top sandwich baggie. Then I put those all into a gallon Ziploc, and put them in the freezer. Each morning when I pack Daniel's lunch for the day, he gets a frozen muffin. It saves me time from having to bag the muffin each morning, and the frozen muffin helps with cooling his lunch box, and is thawed by the time he gets around to eating it.
I guess this is a "gross banana tip" and a "time saver tip" all rolled into one :)
