‘Nanners’ — from baby food to comfort food

banana peelNanners (bananas) first entered my vocabulary, thanks to “Rugrats,” one of the many Nickelodeon cartoon shows I watched with my kids. Star of the show toddler Tommy loved nanners and often fed them to his baby brother, Dil while pal Chuckie, twins Phil and Lil and Tommy’s dog, Spike, looked on. Villain Angelica, the oldest of the tots, always said, “You dumb babies.”

Then we had “Bananas in Pajamas” the life-sized bananas with Australian accents. and finally we all grew to love/hate the dreaded banana peel, at left from Mario Kart, made famous by Nintendo EAD.

Throughout the years, my kids learned to love banana bread, and now it’s the one thing I often send off to my son in Virginia Beach.

Funny how a tropical fruit can have such influence on the family.
