yes, I know what this looks like.

I promise you, fried bananas are a delicacy you MUST try next time you visit an Asian restaurant.  Once again harkoning back to the great state of Oregon, where I consumed myself into a state resembling a coma, this lovely treat looks sort of like a fried dick. On the other hand, it's absolutely delicious (the banana, that is).

What? I'm not gay.

2-6 Bananas
Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Complete Pancake & Waffle mix
frying oil
sprinkle of ground cinnamon
sprinkle of sugar
This is simple as making pancakes.First, slice up the bananas into quarter pieces. Combine pancake mix with water or milk, whichever you prefer.
Dip bananas in batter and fry in oil until golden brown.
Lastly, while still hot, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over cooked bananas.

Also, particularly good with coconut ice cream, if you can find it.

I'm back!

I took a short hiatus last week, as I spent most of the week in Portland, Oregon, enjoying the city. Now, I'm back, and I've come to share my delicious discoveries with you.

The first of these is the world-famous Voodoo doughnuts... linked here. This den of sugar and salt has everything a healthy, growing boy needs to be come obese while enjoying every minute of it. Among their fantastical creations are such oddities as the Voodoo doll, the Bacon Maple bar, and the Dirty Old Bastard... which is a lot better than it sounds, trust me.

Bacon maple bars

Look at that bacony goodness. I had three of these while I was visiting, and regretted not a single bite of it. There's only so much deliciousness in the world, and about 40% of it is allocated towards these little beauties. The salty-sweet flavor might take some getting used to, but for a practicing gourmand such as myself, it was heavenly.

Most fun you can have with your pants on.
