Go Bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S! How many times have you bought bananas, then took too long to eat them all and they started turning brown and you threw them in the garbage? Stop right there! Don't throw them out. Put them in your freezer. When you have collected 6-8 bananas, you can thaw them and make my bang'n banana bread.
