Red Banana

Yesterday we made an impromptu trip to the world food store, on our way to the library.

The girl was wanting some "Happiness in a Bottle", the boy was wanting some "Ginger Beer" and after having re-read an old childhood favorite Enid Blyton book, I too wanted some "Ginger Beer".

Once we got to the store - the girl (perhaps also influenced by having read the above mentioned Enid book) changed her mind and bought "Ginger Beer".

We found some red bananas. They were small and plump and as the girl eats her bananas partly green - I figured it would have to be pretty nasty for her not to eat it.

This morning we cut open the banana and had a taste. The girl thought it looked a little pinkish and though I couldn't see that - I did read up on it later and it said that the banana ranges from a creamy color to a slight pinkish color.

The banana was sweet and tasted to me like a regular banana. The girl, who really loves bananas, thought it was yummy but tasted "different"...hmmm
