Just For Fun: Going Bonkers for Bananas

In our house, we all love bananas. There are five of us, plus two college girls staying with us for the summer. If we all eat a banana a day, that's 49 bananas a week! That's a lot of bananas. It's hard to keep up with it all!

If just one person fails to keep up with his or her daily banana quotient, baking banana bread will be on the agenda in no time at all (overripe bananas can also be peeled and plastic wrapped to use in smoothies later).

Does your family have a favorite fruit that is hard to keep stocked through the week? If so, what is it?

(After bananas, it's apples for us).


  1. Clementines are hard to keep stocked in the house! Bananas come right after that.

  2. Strawberries are hard for us to keep in the house. The kids and I love them, but not my husband, he is not much of a fruit person. Then it would be apples!

  3. (in season) Strawberries! My son loves fruit - oranges, bananas, PEARS. I buy a 3 lb of apples at a time so we almost always have those.

    49 - that's a lot of bananas!!

    All my girls really love pears, strawberries and blueberries.

  5. PS Aldi's has the best price for bananas?

  6. I think so...but we don't have an Aldi's here.
    Sometimes the stores will have the spotted bananas that are going brown marked down quite a bit...and they are great on the inside!

    (By the way, I don't actually buy 49 bananas a week! I usually buy a few bunches, and then if I ever make a mid-week run, I'll get some more.)
