Banana Whine

I had a hard night. It was rough. I fell asleep sometime around 4 a.m. I had high hopes of sleeping in, but my daughters had a different idea.

5:48 a.m. – Both girls come into my room. Mgazi crawls in bed. Zaffy 
asks if she can watch tv.

6:17 a.m. – Mgazi crawls OVER me, to get out of my side of the bed so
 she can join her sister watching tv.

6:45 a.m. – Mgazi comes into my room.

Mgazi: Mom, I’m hungry. I want breakfast.

Me: Got get yourself a banana.

Mgazi: Awwww. Just a banana?

6:54 a.m. – Mgazi comes back in my room.

Mgazi: Mommy, the banana is gross.

Me: Why? What does it taste like?

Mgazi: I don’t know. Zaffy is not strong enough to open it.

7:05: a.m. - Zaffy & Mgazi come into my room.

Zaffy: Mommy, I can’t open my banana or Mgazi’s and they look gross.

7:33 a.m. – Mgazi comes in.

Mgazi: Mommy, Zaffy’s tooth hurts. She can’t open her 
banana and I need some breakfast.

Me: Ok. Did you eat your banana?

Mgazi: Yes. I ate the whole thing. Zaffy finally got it open. It was gross.

Defeated, I get up to make the girls some breakfast. Mgazi watches me with an eagle eye. She counts the number of items on each plate.

Mgazi: Zaffy gets 1, 2, 3 ,4 things. I get 1, 2, 3 
things. Mommy, why does Zaffy get 4 things and I only get 3 things?

Me: Gaz, what’s on Zaff’s plate that is not on yours?

Mgazi: A banana.

Glass of white wineRecommended wine: I recommend banana wine, of course. Yes, it exists. All you need is 21 lbs of RIPE bananas, 5 gallons water and 15-20 lbs white and/or brown sugar, and some golden raisins.

Here’s a couple of sites that can help you with the recipe:
