Desserts this week

While mentally preparing for Superbowl Sunday this week, and doing all of the things normally required in life, my brain hit "Overload". So there was nothing particularly exciting to show you in the food for the past couple of days. Care to peruse desserts?

Brownie Sundae with caramel ice cream, bananas, praline powder and whipped cream. No, I did not partake, since I don't like brownies. It's better for my derriere this way.

Pound cake with orange sauce, bananas and whipped cream. About this day, my older son growled that he saw a pattern emerging here. I don't know whether he was pleased or not the next night, when banana cake appeared.

Yes, you've guessed it: I got another case of bananas this week. A half dozen loaves of banana bread will go into the freezer, a couple will leave with my son on Monday, when he returns to Carolina, and more than half of the case is already gone.

the lighting on the trio of desserts looks so good, there must be something to buying cases of bananas because these looks so fresh and sweet.

I love chocolate AND bananas AND ice cream ! All together in one dessert on one plate - I'm glad this was at your house and not mine. MY derriere couldn't handle it LOL :-)

You spoil those fellas! These desserts look so pretty. I love banana anything, and with the whipped cream, well, I'd be in heaven. I hope they help you wash all the dishes required to make these desserts!
