Okay, so Marash Girl was planning to make Banana Cake for Thanksgiving. But what to do? No rotten (or more delicately put, "overripe") bananas were available anywhere. How would she make her famous Banana Cake without rotten bananas? And where can one find rotten bananas? Certainly not at any of the supermarkets. Now what?
I suppose they could rewrite the song, "Yes, we have no bananas" (One of Grandpa Peter's favorite songs . . . a song sung by Eddie Cantor, a song which became a musical hit in 1923) to read, "Yes, we have no rotten bananas!"
But seriously . . . if you want to make a decent Banana Cake, you need rotten bananas! Well, Marash Girl, you still have a few days left before Thanksgiving. Maybe you'll find those special bananas you seek . . . But where?
