Whenever Ty does the grocery shopping with me we end up with a few interesting things in our cart. This time it was plantains. I've never eaten them before and he suggested we give it a go for family night treat. He tried them in Mexico with salsa and liked them. I decided they'd be better with cinnamon and whip cream (my kids are always asking if I "made up" the recipe and this one I didn't). The verdict? A plantain is more like a potato than a banana and if we ever eat them again it will be with salsa. They were ok, but only 2 of us really liked them this way.
