JUST HOW MANY POINTS IN A BANANA???

Me being a Weight Watcher 'n' all... I judge everything I eat by how many 'points' it's worth..

So I know a banana that fits in the curve of my hand is around 1.5 points.....

See??? A nice size banana = 1.5 points. Yesterday I was at the supermarket and saw a new banana, one I had never seen before! So I got two.....

UMMMMMMM.... HOW MANY POINTS DO YA RECKON?????

Have ya ever seen such a huge banana? I sure havn't, it's got me gobsmacked! ha ha ha.

I am hoping it tastes good! It would be a real bugger if it was really awful to the taste.

TODAY:

Dunno! Kids to school, might go for a walk before it gets too hot... might work on me tan..... the choices I have!!! Being a 'kept woman' is wonderful.

ONWARD..... OH and HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIONY!!!!

Apparently (Thanks Teresa) that monster is a Plantain Fruit... in the Banana family... but needs to be cooked to be eaten... so I'm looking up recipes! Me... reading a recipe!!!!

AMANDA: ya grubby tart! lol

It's a cloudy day here, perfect for blog reading! I have 283 updates to read! Hmmmm ... maybe not! Just the most recent me thinks....

Right.... I've been reading/commenting on blogs for 2 hours.. I'm done! If I missed you, sorry. I am off to stretch me legs! I just 'marked as read' about 230 odd blog updates... EVIL. But necessary, I could never read them all. You just have to love me anyway.

OMG... some of your comments are soooooo EVIL....I am never putting a fruit on me blog again... my mind boggles at what you dirty buggers will come up with next !

I'm going to SHARE my banana with Stew... now make what ya like of that statement!!!!

You ever have days where no matter what ya do... you just feel 'flat'? Well that's me today.. can't seem to get motivated to do anything... feel yuk, moody, tired.... and all that jazz. *sigh*

The only good thing I've done all day is help my 81 year old neighbour get her new oven to go..... THAT'S IT. The rest of the time I've just moped around feeling ikkkk. I put some chops in the microwave to defrost.. and cooked them instead... still in the polystyrene trays and gladwrap! NICE. Hope they ain't friggin awful to eat!

Still havn't checked out a recipe for the HUGE nana..... useless.

End of Day: another one bites the dust. Still feeling ikkkk, think it's PMT... got bloody sore boobs. I may not have the girly bits necessary for monthly's anymore, but I still ovulate and get friggin sore boobs.... damn.

NSV: none, friggin NONE. nite nite.

  1. Pretty sure that's a "plantain fruit" and has to be cooked in order to be consumed.

    Oh Chris, sorry you're feeling flat... I been laughing all day about the banana! I'd warm it up slightly, put some whipped cream on top, a few chocolate sprinkles and you and Stew could start at each end until you meet in the middle.. keep you happy for awhile..cheer up girl. You certainly entertain all of us! Take care KJ

  18. I'm loving the banana comments!! Thanks for the comment you left me :) You just need to find your groove now that you are all settled in your new home. You have had so much on lately that you are bound to feel flat now everything is back to normal.

    I'm going to try to lose around 2 kilos over the next four weeks so that I look a little better in the dress I have bought for the wedding we are going to. Care to join me in a little weight loss?

  24. I had a plantain and they fried it in butter with some cinnamon and some sugar at the end to make it have some sauce. Served with ice cream it was a treat. Without cooking it tastes like a green bananna. Cooking converts the starch to sugar. We are going into fall here in the Heartland, USA and it is getting cooler by the day. MUD OH, Happy belated Birthday.
