I LOVE when seemingly weird things are just absolutely amazing, especially in the food realm.

I was composing this wrap in my head yesterday while riding home on the bus after a fun day filled with crafts, artistic inspiration and girlfriend talk (a much needed and overdue day). It was a 45 minute bus ride so I had time to go over lots of different options. I even made a carrot ginger soup that I didn’t get to make in real life.  I do this pretend game of recipe composition often. Sometimes it happens while I’m laying in bed staring at the ceiling right before I fall asleep, could be when I’m bored, or on a contemplative hike.

The way it looks or plays out in my head is almost like a mobile app game. With various food items going on and off the plate until I finally rest on a combination I’m pleased with.

With tonight’s reverie I really contemplated the banana. I thought maybe that’s just too weird and I went back and forth and so on. I finally convinced myself to include it because it was sweet and sweet will balance out the flavors….I hoped. That is how I surprise myself because this was DELICIOUS. So delicious that I just ‘read shouted’ that at you. 😉
