Roasted Banana Gelato

You know how some "banana flavored" stuff tastes way too banana-y?

Well, not this little pint of deliciousness.

The roasted banana gelato yields a creamy, yet light, taste that is exactly like how it should: Fresh banana caramelized with brandy and brown sugar, blended into milk and churned to perfection. No chocolate chips or any other fillers to spoil the fun.

Whose ever idea this is to pretty much blend a banana foster into a gelato, it's BRILLIANT.

If I don't watch it, or if my lactose intolerance stomach doesn't protest, I would've eaten the whole thing in one session.

Verdict: Nirvana.

Hey, I was the Anon on FEB who complained of having to scan and check my own groceries.

I don't know about you, but I buy quite a bit of stuff. There's usually eight or nine bags full of stuff when I come home from an average trip. I have a relative with me go shopping, and one scans while the other bags. This works well enough, except neither of us have worked in a grocery store so we can't bag as fast as the people who do.

Anyway, we went to the store yesterday so I got to rethink my standing on this, since the workers were busy with other customers. By the time I was done scanning, we had a bag or two of stuff left to go so as I went to help him out, the next customer started scanning stuff and sending it down the conveyor belt. After a "hey, whoa, we're not done here! Hold on!" we got him to stop but it reinforces my opinion: They need enough people so that customers don't have to double duty at the conveyors and slow down efficiency for everyone.

At the self-service, non-conveyor stations where the bags are right under the scanner, I can understand scanning and bagging your own. But again, we just buy too much stuff to use those.

Hi ya,

Thanks for coming by. I hear ya when you have to buy a lot of stuff. It could be a pain in the butt.

My F&E store just never seem to have enough people to clog up the lines. Then again, not sure if that's a good sign. Hahaha!

Thanks for following me here.
