better than banana bread

One day my wife and I will sail the world. What will we do with those bananas we provisioned and didn't eat?

Here is a tried and tried and true recipe for old bananas. Peel and cut them up into blender friendly pieces and freeze them.

Mix up a batch of powdered milk and blend with the frozen banana. Instant milk shake. Enjoy.

Stayed tuned for Italian beef Chicago style, tuna casserole EVERYONE will love and potato casserole that any empty but well stocked larder can make.

Unhappy Bananas?

Sounds like a great drink, but, who carries bananas on boats? My understanding is they are bad luck, and as we all know, you don't want to push your luck when on the high seas.

Bad Luck?

Bananas are bad luck? That explains a lot of things for me.
Maggie & I always carried bananas, as do every other cruiser we know. Carried them ripe, green, and frozen.

Bananas are indeed bad luck, according to marine folklore.

So are women onboard, especially if they are red-heads....

As for the bananas, yup there is a thing about 'em.

Not sure what the connection is, but yers truly got a good chewing a few years ago in the class-room for meh USCG ticket course.
During a break I threw a banana peel in my instructors thrash basket, in her office, as I passed by on my way to the next class room session.
Not a good idea.....

This petite and sexy blond gal, that really was the ultimate symbol of breaking barriers, of new thinking, and with lots of sea time behind her and teaching old salts and hippies like my-self and my class mates, she was the one most upset about bananas...Not only onboard, but in class and especially in her little office.
She chewed out a class mate aboat that banana peel in her cubicle thrash can, 'cause she thought this other person was the culprit....Finally I got up and claimed "mea-culpa", I did it...Don't chew out my poor mate, who had no idea what was going on.

I got a light chewing from the little girl with the big mouth, but passed my exam...Phew.
Halleluja, what is the big deal with them little bananas?
(Been sailing with the yellow monkey-loafs for years and years and never had any bad luck....Am I pushing it?...

I'm really pushing my luck

I think I'm in deep doo-doo.
My bride (woman aboard) is a Red Head who makes banana bread (you guessed it, from Bananas), often on the Thursday before our Friday departure. Four ill omens in one sentence!
Pray for me, brothers & sisters.
