Icky, Sticky, Yummy

We do sticky things every week:

we sculpt,

we knead,

we glue,

and we use plenty of tape.

But we were not ready for the weather to be so incredibly sticky this week!

I was caught completely unprepared for this heat wave -- as of three weeks ago we still had a snow bank in our backyard. I had barely gotten warm weather clothing out of storage.

Did anyone notice that there were no popsicles in my freezer inventory last week?

The weather just called for a frozen treat, so I created "bananasicles" by inserting a salad fork into a half banana, drizzling it with honey, and rolling it in corn flakes. I then froze the whole batch for two hours.

It was very messy, extremely sticky, but incredibly refreshing.

My only suggested improvement for next time would be to substitute wheat germ for the corn flakes, which would result in a nuttier and more nutritious snack.

You know, I like to freeze my bananas, then dip them in melted peanut butter. Yum. Just a suggestion :D

The bananas sound yummy. Sorry things are stickier than usual there. We have had strange weather too, but things don't usually get sticky here until July, right before the monsoons start.

yummy!, Will have to try to do the honey. I love chocolate but ds does not like chocolate, I know!!! SO honey would work great.
