A Public Service Announcement

As I browse the blogosphere, I've noticed blogs on all kinds of subjects. There are blogs about books, blogs about dieting, blogs about exercise, blogs about scrap-booking, and blogs about art. Some blogs feature fantastic photography; there are blogs about parenting. You name the subject, someone is probably blogging about it.


Some of my favorite blogs are about cooking and feature wonderful, mouth-watering recipes! What I notice is missing, or at least I haven't encountered the subject, is a blog about buying and storing produce. Sometimes it's hard to know the shelf life of a fruit of vegetable. In an attempt to help fill that void, I thought I would post this helpful reminder, How to tell when bananas have gone bad:
I hope all you mothers, chefs, and others benefit from this tip. Just consider it my public service announcement.

Too funny!!

My 6 yr old just told me this week she wanted the clean banana (bunch I just bought) not the dirty one (brown one left from the last bunch)-gave me a chuckle and made me realize it's time to make banana bread!

Hi Eva,

Thanks for stopping by last night. Can I just say, that pic is hilarious! I love it.

I am also in school at the moment and we had a discussion about how produce was distributed and the environment necessary to keep it fresh till it reaches the superpmarket. So very interesting that you would have a PSA on this!

Enjoy retirement!

You make a post like that and you expect me to not comment in the way I do? Sheer will power and respect alone keeps my mouth shut on this one. Any other blogger I'd have said what I am famous for. Don't temp fate and make two posts in a row like this one, Eva. Fair warning.
