Few days back hubby bought a bunch of banana and today they suffered a mishap.. Usually my kids will go and fiddle around with them and then the banana will drop on the floor but today i think the banana are too ripe and the wind is too strong, so 4 of the remaining banana drop on the floor... And so they ended up in my oven!
