I have an interesting relationship with bananas. I cannot stand them, but I really, really want to like them. I know it sounds weird.I don't like the flavor but it is the texture that really gets to me. They are mushy and slimy and just not appetizing. Also, the ruin otherwise delicious fruit salads. If you put in a banana every other fruit automatically tastes like banana. However, I still want to like them. They just seem so convenient and healthy. If you are running late you can just grab a banana and head out the door. Which is why it would be great if I liked them.
A few summers ago Karleigh and I tried to eat a banana and I was able to do two bites. Despite my hate for bananas I love banana bread.
Karleigh and I also made banana pancakes which were pretty good. But that's about all I can do. I also cannot stand banana candy, the smell of it also grosses me out. Which is too bad since Jonny loves banana flavored candy. This post was inspired by a fruit salad that was tainted by bananas, so was, sadly, not too enjoyable. So yeah, I really hate bananas. Why can't I like them?
