Bananas Foster



Hmm. You taste so good but you're not so pretty.


























That's ok. Not everything can be pretty. As long as the personality is good. And I'd say this bowl of ice cream and bananas foster has so much personality.

It's sweet, a little mix of hot and cold, a little boozy. 

Sounds like my personality :) 


So in honor of Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday today, I bring you Bananas Foster.

 






















Bananas Foster
from Martha Stewart
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream (we used vanilla bean)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark or gold rum
  • 3 bananas, peeled, halved crosswise then lengthwise
In a large skillet, heat butter, brown sugar, and rum over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until smooth and bubbly, about 5 minutes.

Add bananas and cook, gently stirring until bananas are warmed through, about 2 minutes. Scoop ice cream into bowls and top with bananas and caramel sauce.

Peace, and bacon grease!
