Because everyone should turn their favorite dessert into breakfast every once in a while. The first time I ever heard the words, “bananas foster” was when I was going to the quick shop in college to get a sugar laden slushy type drink with my roomate. She was a true G.R.I.T.S. (yep, a Girl Raised In The South) in every sense of the word. Imagine the team we were a — me, a Northern Ohio Girl…may as well been Canadian and a girl from South Carolina. Quite the pair! During one of our many trips to get a sugar laden slushy type drink we were talking about our favorite desserts and I honestly cannot remember what mine was. I probably said something very classy like a DQ Blizzard or something like that. Her favorite, bananas foster. I never heard of it and I asked her what it was. As she described it I drifted off into a daydream and imagined that I was eating it. The last thing I heard was…if you like caramel and bananas you’ll like it. Say no more! I had to have it and I did, 3 years later. Such a long time to wait but when you are living on a college campus you don’t exactly have restaurants that serve bananas foster for dessert on the regular.
