YES, WE HAVE NO BANANAS TODAY

THAT SONG HAS been stuck in my head since Debbie showed a video of her funny daughter Rachel talking about nothing but bananas and which also reminds me to watch (again) Audrey Hepburn's movie SABRINA this weekend.

Yesterday while at work, I was craving so bad for some crunchy deep fried TURON with coconut-pineapple ice cream. Yeah, don't be silly, I'm not pregnant!

This Filipino dessert is FOR YOU EYES ONLY cause I'm not expecting you to make this with me. Not for the faint of heart...too much work but it's really worth it! Armed with two plantains, spring roll wrappers and a can of jackfruit and I was frying! I just learned that jackfruit is the largest fruit in the whole world! Click HERE to see it for yourself!



"Sweet, delicious tropical treat"... Joey's words.
And my words..."life is good"!


Well, a little bit off topic here... does anybody know if strikeouts (words with line across) work for BLOGGER? Please let me know. Happy Wednesday everyone!

UPDATED: Thanks for the code, Meg! You're so brilliant!

Thats so weird that you want to watch Sabrina! I was just thinking that I need to watch that the other day!

Wow! Rachel inspired this?? YUMMY! That is one beautiful looking treat (and those dishes are gorgeous too). I shall be going to see that enormous JACK fruit just as soon as I am done here. : ) XOXO ...

That looks wonderful. What time are supposed to come over for dessert? I've never heard of jackfruit before. Looks very interesting.

Connie! I am just having my first cup of coffee, AND NOW I want a big plate of "crunchy deep fried TORON with coconut pineapple ice cream"! I love fried plantains, never tried jackfruit.

I would brave the recipe, because I know the results would be worth it.

Yum...

Joy said...

They look fantastic.

Looks delectable! Wish you could come cook up some stuff at my house! I'd make us a nice cup of Starbucks coffee and we'd sit down and have a chat.

That looks so good. I love sweets, thats why I am always on my bike. LOL

Sabrina, the older version is so much better. I didn't care the new one. Audrey Hepburn has so much class.
