Don't Go Bananas Paula!

Paula Dean
On Saturday mornings Sabina and I like to lie in bed together and watch Paula Dean on the Food Network. We love Paula. She is as cute as a button and we can't get enough of her Southern accent and temptingly fattening and scrumptious looking meals. Every few words that Paula says, Sabina and I try to imitate and then we giggle at each other. A fun time is always had.

Yesterday however, Sabina and I stopped giggling and began to get grossed out. Paula's episode was all about recipes that had bananas in them. We like bananas but we just not feeling these dishes. One is particular was just horrendous. It was a Cheesy Ham and Banana Casserole. UGH! It sounds bad but you should have seen it put together. In a casserole dish you line the bottom with sliced white bread. You then cover the bread with sliced ham. After the ham goes a thick layer of sliced bananas. Then comes another layer of white bread. This is then topped off with shredded cheese, crushed potato chips, sliced bacon and then a mixture of eggs, fresh cream, nutmeg and black pepper. The combination of these items was just too much for Sabina and I to bear.

Do people actually eat that stuff???

Well that's about it.

As Paula would say, "Good night y'all!"

I guess it all comes down to what you like. If you like it, it can't be weird!

When my mom was little she ate peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. Sounds appalling to me but she liked it!

Kelly, ooh, yuck. That ham and banana casserole sounds, well, icky. I grew up in the South but have never had that dish! Now, I have had a peanut butter, mayo, and banana sandwich. Dee-lish! (But not that pretty.)

Peanut butter and mayo? Peanut butter and pickles? Eeeewww gross? Then again, when I was pregnant my #1 craving (drumroll) was hotdog bun with ketchup. Nothing more!! LOL
