The most unused and under appreciated appliance in our house
is a large juicer!
Poor thing is so lonely,
because no one wants to play with it.
Last year about this time we (really my husband)
decided that we should incorporate some juice to our diet.
He read about these juice fasts and thought we should try one.
You know the time of year…
it’s when you decide it is time to get healthy
because summer is coming all too quickly.
(something about wearing bathing suits gets you motivated quicker)
We only used it once or twice.
Let me rephrase that…
I only took a sip of one of those.
Want to know why?
Delicious fruits and vegetables become totally destroyed
when their juice is stripped from them.
It was hard to even swallow:-)
In my husband’s words…
“A cucumber tastes like monkey sweat and
a carrot tastes like old dish water.
It is just plain horrible.”
So our juice has been sitting collecting dust under the cabinet.
But we still hold on to the fact that one day we will
take up juicing and it might be magically delicious!
Until then I prefer to eat my fruits in cakes like this!!!
I had bunches of brown bananas to use up like yesterday.
So I instagramed a picture of them and facebooked everyone
asking what I could make with all the bananas rotting on my counter.
You guys are awesome!
I had so many comments about what to make.
But then a good friend from college called me with this recipe…
and I knew this was the one I wanted to try.
It is truly the Best Banana Cake I have ever eaten.
And it was just begging for some sort of chocolate frosting,
and since there was hot fudge in the fridge
I decided to use that some how!
This cake was so good that we devoured it in a day…
and then 3 days later, I made it again for our lifegroup!
Yup, it is that good!
I would make it right now
if I had more brown bananas.
So, I am curious…
do you have any unused appliances collecting dust in your house?
Or are we the only ones?
