LP11 – Round-up Part 2

Temperatures here in NC has been in the mid 90’s the last couple of days and today, for 4th of July celebrations the weather will remain in the 90’s with plenty of humidity. I was outside for my morning coffee in the backyard earlier and I was already starting to sweat. I almost wish I had something cool to drink instead.

We saw these mini-bananas at the Filipino store over the weekend, and I just couldn’t resist but buy this bunch even though it costs more than the gigantic bananas at the regular grocery store. They too remind me of summers we spent with my Lola Faus where she had banana trees right in her backyard and these sweet little things were the exact variety she had. They may be small but they pack a great flavor. They are sweet with more intense banana flavor than the giant ones, their flesh have a brighter yellow color, and the peel much thinner. The girls have been devouring them, but I am glad to see that Jade had also put them to good use in other ways.

We have two more entries for Lasang Pinoy 11 on Summertime Coolers and Memories of Summer.

Chef Jade made a mini-banana split delight from the mini-bananas that we picked up from the Filipino store over the weekend; and an iced coffee topped with whipped cream and cherry. I dare hope that she didn’t make these two cooling refreshments at the same time! 😀

Toni of Wifely Steps reminds us of another totally Pinoy treat, the iced avocado candy which her mom still lovingly prepares for her and makes her feel like a ten year old again.

I said only Blogger blogs and you said that you are copying Duke’s answer so it okay with me. So please send me a password and username of your blog so I can work on it as soon as I can. TC
