guineo

Guineo - pronounced gee as in growl with the hard g and e like in see followed by simply nay and yo - gee - nay - yo. Guineo is a funny word to me because I only use it to refer to small bananas but thats not how its defined.http://www.thriftyfoods.com/departments/_images/prdc_fctso2_mnznbn.jpg Any way I always will call a small sweet banana a guineo. When I say small sweet banana I am talking about the banana often called the 'apple banana' because it, oddly enough, has an apple flavor. I like these babys all kinds of ways. I freeze them peeled and fresh and use them in smoothies, on a constant level. I love bananas. I think a banana is the most perfect food. When I eat a banana a day I am usually thinner, happier and more healthy. Time to start that up again.



Since I am still without camera I had to use my phone camera to bring you these lovely grilled guineos that we treated 'bananas foster style'

I keep buying Casio XLIM cameras, I am caught in an endless loop of them offering me great upgrades or, and thats a big or, pay the same amount to have them fix mine. I upgrade and each time get a new one year warranty. My feeling is that if I spent this same amount on a more expensive camera I would be involved in the more expensive loop. I am not rough with these cameras but they do go with me everywhere and usually in a cargo pocket in my pants (I have them in a case) Point is we went from a 7 to a 10 on megapixels and we are psyched (scroll around on that last link and find the megapickles, I think this is one creative mofo a maverick) Speaking of mavericks I dont know if I should have made my face more orange or my hands more red in that top gun photo.....see always the maverick - I just dont care! By the way in case you havent said it right yet it is pronounced shay what not cheeze whiz what.

I am not the endless typist so I cant 'tell' you what we did even though it involved a tropical storm. I have tried to describe the tasty bites we have had in the past to no avail so why would our recent tasty bites fare any different. As a result we are left with our imaginations, like imagine that buffalodickdy has a birthday this month ( along with a few of my cousins, some friends and me) September is popular, just ask Green Day.

Small sweet bananas, Hmmmm....
I'll keep my thoughts to myself on that!
How about 2 cameras- a cheapie to put in your pocket and a nicer one for the more formal occasions?
I'm a plain old canon powershot owner myself, wish I knew more about it!

The small bananas look yummy. I wonder if they have them in my stores around here. I will check into that. Yeah great pictures.

You know, I hated bananas for most of my life. Liked banana bread, but otherwise, they just tasted too sweet. Which is really too bad, because they are a very near perfect food.

I wonder if grilled bananas would taste better?
