Discount Bananas at Meijer!

The bf and I took a late night Meijer trip after hanging out with some friends.  At 11PM the grocery section is very empty.  It was nice.  Only bummer was that they hadn't restocked a few items yet.

BUT, one thing that they did have was discounted bananas!  These are the ones on that stand that says "Oops, we ordered too much".  I bought 3 bags of them.  They were really ripe, but not bad.

When I got them home, I chopped em up and put them on a baking sheet in the deep freezer for the night.

Then in the morning, they were mostly frozen and I placed them in a bag.

I also felt the need to make some OhSheGlows Strawberry Shortcake Stacked Pancakes.  The photo on her website was irresistible.

One of the reasons I bought the bananas to freeze is for making Banana Soft Serve Ice cream.  The topping on these pancakes is, in fact, strawberry-banana soft serve.

Don't these pancakes look like the best breakfast ever?
 Yeah, they look amazing....
Sadly, the pancakes themselves were not very good  :(  I guess I am used to fluffy buttery pancakes.  These were tough and the spices didn't seem to go well at all with the strawberry-banana flavor.  Next time I shall make some buttermilk pancakes to go with these, or the bf's flat Finnish pancakes  :)
