What's for Supper

It's a daily question. Tonight we're having Bananas Foster because there's two bananas that aren't getting any younger.

And I made some green chili in the Instant Pot so maybe I'll make some flour tortillas to pour it over and make kind of like Navaho tacos.

Navaho tacos are deep fried yeast dough (fry bread) topped with green chili gravy and garnished with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes and minced onions. Cilantro and sour cream if you have them.

Homemade tortillas tend to be puffier than store-bought, so they are nearly like fry bread.

The other day I made a very elaborate banana cream pie to try out the recipe. The crust is like a pecan cookie: ground pecans, butter, egg, flour. Baked, and spread with a layer of melted chocolate chips. The custard filling is made from scratch, flavored with rum and thinly sliced bananas. And lots of whipped cream.

We had some for breakfast, gave some to the neighbors. The flavor combination is perfect - not too much of any one flavor. It was a lot of work, though, and it will require a special occasion to motivate me to make it again. However, I will mark it as a recipe worthy of the time and cost of ingredients. Can't say that for every pie I've made this summer.

Uh oh, now I will definitely be baking a cake today, maybe with some frozen banana mixed into it. That pie looks very good.

Now I'm wondering about making this pie with a gingersnap cookie crust.... Oh, be still, my heart!

I'm not much into pies--I prefer cakes BUT if you bake and send me a pie I'll eat just to be a nice guy!

We're 7000 feet above sea level, and cake baking is a challenge. Because of the lower air pressure, the batter rises up fast in the oven and then if there isn't enough protein in the batter, not enough structure forms in the cell walls, and they collapse. There's ways to adjust the recipes: less sugar, more flour, but it's always a challenge, so pies are easier in that respect.
