Monday Musings + Caramelized Banana Sandwich

1. First things first.

I have a new (incredibly dangerous) obsession:

Much more flavorful than my beloved Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter, Wafels & Dinges Spekuloos Spread is utterly addictive.

I have to thank Kelli for mentioning this product in the comments on my Speculoos Cookie Butter Baked Oatmeal post; I LOVE it =).

I can say with certainty admit that the majority of the jar will be was consumed like so:



2. I made my carnitas for the second time a little while ago, and used the leftovers to make pulled pork nachos.

Yes. Pulled pork nachos!

I made my homemade corn tortilla chips, loaded on the pulled pork along with some shredded 50% reduced fat jalapeno cheddar, baked the nachos, and topped ’em with diced avocado and chopped cilantro.




3. I have some exciting (non food-related) news!

John and I bought a house in a nearby suburb, and couldn’t be more excited to close in late May and move in early/mid June =). I will share some photos once we are settled in this summer!



4. Back to the food.

Here we have my version of the Grilled Banana Sandwich from Mike & Patty’s in Boston’s South End. Cinnamon honey butter crisps up the bread while caramelized bananas keeps the center nice and soft.

Check out the recipe on the Back Burner blog!

  3. Congrats on the new house! Medfield is such a cute little town! I grew up around there and worked there until very recently! Once you’re settled in you have to try the Blue Moon Bagel Cafe in Medfield. It’s a cute little bakery / sandwich shop with lots of healthier choice options!! Good luck!!
