Go Fry a Banana


It was lunch time when I went into the kitchen to dig up something edible. I was finishing my second mango when I saw a lone banana next to stove. That is the moment that I thought to fry it. So I googled "fry banana, butter" and apparently Mexicans have been holding onto this secret for a long time now. I fried the banana, sprinkled it with brown sugar and ate it with coffee and a grilled peanut butter and honey sandwich.

It was amazing. I was so taken by this experience that I googled "fried banana history." I didn't find any good history on this. I imagine the idea was given by God directly to the Aztecs or Mayans in Mexico. On google I did find that people suffering from mild frostbite can find immediate relief by placing the inside of a banana peal directly against the effected area.

If I were a preacher I would end every service with the benediction "God is good, eat a fried banana" and all of my congregants would die quickly but happily from heart disease.

Btw, banana peel is supposed to work for warts, too (although it didn't work for me.)
