It's time for a little decadence...
I'll let you in on a little secret. MGG has to weaknesses and I know what they are...
Snacks and Ice Cream. Yes, that's right. Ice Cream.
He loves to have a bite of ice cream for dessert.
It's his guilty pleasure...
I'm sure we all know about those don't we? So as usual the other night after dinner he's wanting a scoop of ice cream. I decided to make him a special treat by creating a Bananas Foster Sundae for him instead of his usual cone.
I grab some ripe bananas, slice them and throw them in a skillet with melted butter, rum, cinnamon, and sugar. Oh my! I remember the first time I had Bananas Foster at a Mardi Gras themed party. and it made such an impression. One that stuck with me. The flavors are outstanding.
So this sundae is a play off of the original dessert. Combining the flavors and then using them as a topping for vanilla ice cream. The bomb if I do say so myself!
Truth be told I have a weakness for Ice Cream as well.
