Chocolate Custard with Bananas & Walnuts.

Thursday 7th July 2011

He runs hot & cold with bananas.
When he was a baby they had to be peeled but left in the skin. Many a banana was thrown to the ground because I had taken the last quarter out of the skin. Catastrophe!

Then he went through a phase where he would only eat them if they were cut into rounds but it had to be cut & served immediately because if it went slightly brown it would be left on the table to rot as far as he was concerned. Oh my god!

For the last year or so he has discovered the black stem that sometimes stays in the end of the banana and so now hands it back to me half eaten, whereupon I would try to get him to have another couple of mouthfuls, to no avail. Heaven forbid!

Funnily enough, he had no problem at all when it was smothered in chocolate custard & sprinkled with walnuts. Funny that. 😉

About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

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.

    We all have our little food quirks, but omg his are hilarious! And ridiculous. 😉

    Did you make your chocolate custard? If so, are you willing to share the recipe? It looks delish!

  2. How cute. My younger son and I both will only eat a banana if it’s just right. Slightly green with no marks or bruises whatsoever. With chocolate…always.

      Roger, I’m with you – I like a very ripe banana. And my husband is the opposite – he likes them just this side of yellow (i.e., one shade away from green). People are funny. 🙂
