On my way home from work the other day, I was thinking I should write about ice cream. It’s summer, and it’s pretty hot for Northern California, so it’s definitely ice cream season. My VERY pregnant daughter-in-law called and she was eating ice cream. It must be destiny. When I opened my email, I had a notice from FoodBuzz to their Featured Publishers (and I’m one of those) with a banana split blog post challenge as a fund raiser for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. On Monday, there will be a Top 9 Takeover where all nine of the featured posts on FoodBuzz.com will be about banana splits.
I know about banana splits and unfortunately I know about ovarian cancer. Too many women have ovarian cancer and often it has spread before they know about it. Progress in both early detection and treatment is needed. So if you go to http://www.kelly-confidential.com/foodbuzz and click on the link, you can create a virtual banana split. For every virtual banana split, Electrolux will donate a dollar to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. And for each Featured Publisher who submits a post, FoodBuzz will donate $50, up to $5000. Check it out and support ovarian cancer research.
So much for virtual banana splits. How about the real thing! When I was in college, I used to go to the local ice cream shop and have a banana split as my lunch. I had very little money for food and I decided with a banana, the nuts and the calcium from the ice cream involved, at least there was some nutritional value in the pleasure of a banana split.
