Lately I've found myself explaining the things I do, to someone who has recently been getting to know me better. I've been slightly aware of my odd behavior, but apparently it is glaringly obvious to other members of my family (as my daughter has pointed out to me many times). I will do things over, and over; not in an obsessive-compulsive way. But what I will do is listen to the same CD constantly (for months). During that time, I will not play any other CDs. I will listen to the music and know it inside-out. I will know all of the words. I can sing all of the harmonies. I will hum it to myself as I'm trying to fall asleep at nights (which keeps me from falling asleep at nights). Does anyone else do this? It seems to be the same with food. When I really like something, I will make it non-stop -- especially salads. There are winters we will eat greens with dried cherries, toasted walnuts, Gorgonzola, and a cherry balsamic vinaigrette most every night (o.k., sometimes I will throw in some bacon). It's not a lack of creativity or that I'm in a rut... I just love this salad and I'm happy as can be consuming this and nothing else.
Years ago I fell into that same routine with this breakfast of whole grain bread, banana slices, peanut butter and honey (chocolate chips optional ;-). It was what I made every morning for weeks on end. I think I see a pattern developing... again.
Broiled Bananas with Peanut
Butter and Honey
• 1 slice of whole grain bread
• Natural peanut butter
• 1 banana, cut in 1/4-inch slices
• Chocolate chips, optional
Spread the whole grain bread with peanut butter (smooth or chunky). Arrange banana slices on top of the peanut butter (toss on chocolate chips, if using),and drizzle with a good dose of honey. Place the bread on a baking sheet and broil until toasted and the bananas have begun to caramelize.

I came across this wonderful blog of three. How fortunate to have a sister who shares the same interests and friends from across the land and ocean you also share with.

I found this an foodgawker and showed it to my very picky morning eater. And he can't wait to eat it tomorrow. And like you he will eat it and enjoycancel it for months on end. Thanks for sharing.

OMGoodness! Back in the 60s when I was little, I used to get Humpty Dumpty magazine. This was one of the recipes I used to make over and over again... for years! Decades have gone by since I even thought of it. Good thing it's breakfast time!

I do the same type of repetitive things... But instead of a CD, it's normally just one song... Can't wait to try broiled bananas & peanut butter with honey. Sounds delish!

Que receta más original para plátanos. Como vivo en Canarias, donde los plátanos son buenisimos siempre me gusta buscar recetas con este ingrediente, y la tuya está estupenda. Saludos.

My husband and I had this for lunch, it was so tasty and my husband loved it. It's one of those recipes that I will be making again. So easy and delicious!

You said 1 peanut butter (how much is this supposed to mean??)

Hi Shirley -- I cannot find "1 peanut butter" anywhere in the post. There is "1 slice of whole grain bread" and "1 banana" listed in ingredients. You may use as much peanut butter as you desire ;-)

Actually, this is one of my favorite foods. The broiled bananas with peanut butter and honey. My kids like this lot. The photos look stunning. I appreciate your photographic skills too! Anyway, thanks for sharing the recipe and the photos!
