Bananas in Brandy & Vanilla.

Thursday 17th February 2011  

This was another MS creation. We have made this many times before and so he can do it all on his own now. I just set him up with all the ingredients and away he goes.

A chip off the old block, I would say.

Cut the banana down the centre and cut each half into 4 pieces. Put all the bits in a tray and cover (to taste) in brown sugar. Pour a little brandy into a glass and mix with some vanilla extract before dripping the mixture over the sugar covered bananas. Pop in the oven for about 20 minutes. We added a bit of squirty cream when it was done.

As we sat at the table together eating our dessert I realised it was my turn to give him a critique of his efforts;

“Well…” I said taking my last mouthful. “…that was lovely…10/10.”

“Yup…” He replied smacking his lips. “…me too…perfect.”

I like his modesty.

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    Your son makes me laugh. I suspect he’s going to be one heckuva chef as he continues to grow up; he will delight some lovely woman in the future. 🙂 Nice work.
