Bananas Foster Sundae

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.
