………… well, “B” rhymes with “P” and at the moment my Peonies are looking gorgeous. If I wait until I get to P in my alphabet posting the plants will be sad and straggly looking. So, my B is a Beony – though that’s actually a fly on top of the flower!
But for the rigid rule-followers …. B is for Banana. For many years I took a banana sandwich to school for my lunch. Mum would slice one on the slant and squish it between two slices of buttered bread. Those were the days of greaseproof paper, not cling wrap & sandwich bags, but I don’t remember it ever being all gross and brown by lunch time!
Then I grew up, left home and still had a banana every day though it became breakfast instead of lunch. For at least 10 years I’d cut a banana into rounds make a sandwich, butter the outsides and then pop it in the frypan! Occasionally, because the whole fat & frying thing wasn’t bad enough, I’d sprinkle brown sugar over the banana!
Then I went through a 15-year health phase where breakfast consisted of a banana and glass of cranberry juice and lunch was plain yogurt and a banana!
Having obviously overdosed on them I now rarely eat a banana. But, considering how good they are for one’s health & wellbeing I think I should start eating more of them again.
