My lovely friend Sarah asked for this photo from the banana book, and I was happy to oblige. Mmmm, mmmm. Ham and Banana - what could be better? (Anything but prunes, perhaps?)
This also has a recipe for Cheese Sauce. Wow!
6 thin slices boiled ham
6 firm bananas, peeled
Spread each slice of ham lightly with mustard. Wrap a slice of the prepared ham around each banana. Place into a buttered shallow baking pan and pour Cheese Sauce over bananas. Bake at 350F or until bananas are tender.
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
3/4 cup milk
1 1 /2 cups grated American cheese
Melt butter, add flour and stir until smooth. Stir in milk slowly. Add cheese and cook, stirring constantly until sauce is smooth and thickened. Makes 1 cup sauce.
Truly disgusting. Next to this recipe is Banana Meat Loaf. I'm not even kidding. This cookbook is the gift that keeps on giving.
A few of my teens at work have finished their scarves they are knitting for charity. My niece finished first. They've asked me to get circular needles so they can make baby hats. Readers may remember that I challenged myself to make 50 baby hats as the teens will be volunteering 1000 hours this year and that is my part of it. I'm on hat #9. I wish I could have a spell and my stuff could knit automatically like Hermione did in Harry Potter, as I think the teens will soon be beating me!
