Tempura Banana

I had another glamorous lunch of Lean Cuisine and veggies. I know, don’t be a jelly belly we can’t all eat this good.

But this meal came with a show. Vegas wanted to climb on top of our front door.

what gravity?

Spider Cat, Spider Cat…

crazy cat on door

He doesn’t believe in gravity. I wish I didn’t either.


Mid-afternoon I had a major chocolate chip cookie craving. Major.

I considered going to a bakery. I considered baking a batch myself.www.toothpastefordinner.com

Finally I decided on a Vitatop paired with Chobani’s Honeynana yogurt. Heavenly. Try it. I am really digging that flavor of yogurt.Honeynana

I picked up Ben from work (we’re a one car family) and we debated where to have dinner. We drove and searched and talked and finally ended up at a nearby sushi place. It was really anti-climactic. Oh well.

I got the Udon that came with tempura. Ben and I share everything except meat stuff I don’t eat.


I do Udon!


And a couple rolls.

Ben was about to ask for the check when I saw a new sign in the back of the restaurant. They have Banana Tempura now! I don’t know what it is but I am loving Naners lately. I had to try it!

banana tempura is tempting

It is a banana fried tempura style and served with vanilla ice cream and a caramel drizzle. I felt like I was at the fair again with this random fried food.

I truly believe dessert has to have chocolate to be a real dessert, so this was good but it lacked a certain chocolate-y goodness that I desire Smile

    Your cat is so cute!! Not scared either I see, very brave, but they say cats always land on their feet I guess ; )

    At PF Changs they have an amazing banana tempura dessert there too! THe one there looks yummy as well!! Mike and I had a sushi roll that was amazing once called the donkey kong roll and it had banana tempura in the middle, it was to die for! It had crushed peanuts on top and this amazing sweet sauce, I forget what fish was used in it, it was just amazing!

    i am totally with you on a dessert needing chocolate to be considered a REAL dessert. fruity desserts just don’t interest me, at all.
    i’m making choco chip cookies tonight for a super bowl party tomorrow!
    have a great saturday!
    that would freak me out to see a cat over the doorway like that! very funny!

    When I’m craving a cookie, I make one if chocolate-covered Katie’s single-lady cookies. They are vegan and only one serving so they do the trick!
