Bananas and ice cream

Bananas are one of those foods that I like, really, but I can rarely bring myself to eat. I try to eat plain ones from time to time, and as long as I'm doing something else, I can. But there's just that umm, banana flavor that gets to me after a while.

Today I remembered how I do enjoy bananas: sauteed with butter, brown sugar and a little cinnamon. I usually don't bother with the alcohol and go all the way for Bananas Foster, but if you're ever in New Orleans, just get the real thing there -- it's worth it.

Here's how I made my bananas today:

About 1 1/2 T. butter, melted over medium heat in a cast-iron skillet
Between 1/3 and 1/4 c. brown sugar added as butter begins to melt
1/4 t. cinnamon

As brown sugar begins to bubble, lower heat and slice in one banana. Stir together for just a couple of minutes until bananas are warmed and sugar is completely dissolved.

Pour over vanilla ice cream and eat asap!!
