On this episode of hoarders we’re exploring my obsession with the bags of already ripe reduced price bananas/maybe we can start a trend and call it donkey konging/just to be clear no penises are involved.
Seriously though, every time I go to the grocery store I walk past the bananas and see the .39/lb price tag and grab a bag and say oh I’ll make some banana bread but really half of these might be fruit fly food but I’m definitely going to use these. And then I make a loaf of banana bread and forget about the last couple in the bag. Obviously this can’t happen anymore.
Right now my option aresenal is banana bread, that one ingredient ice cream trick, and topping some waffles with bananas and caramel. None of these are bad, but like, I get bored.
S.O.S. Please send me your banana deets.
One thing that I’m sure will be added to the arsenal is this banana curd from Melissa. Seriously. Banana. Curd. I’m going to put that on everything. (via The Faux Martha)

For music this week we’re listening to Sam Smith because he was on SNL a couple weeks ago and he made me feel all the feelings. Seriously though that voice is insane. His other performance from that night was just as powerful but this one has a gospel choir and gospel choirs trump all others forever and alwayz.
