It’s party time with this ultimate dessert! Make room for this show stopping Gluten Free Banana Split Cheesecake. There won’t be a single slice left in the room.
My dad claims to be allergic to bananas. He says they make him throw up. Apparently since he was a baby, he would gag whenever he ate a banana and then throw up violently. I have yet to witness this reaction in the 33 years I have been his daughter. Something seems a little fishy to me.
Even my mom is skeptical that he really is allergic to fresh bananas. She’s spent the past 35 years making sure that every fruit salad is portioned off for him before she mixes in sliced bananas. She also makes sure that the paring knife that was used to slice a banana doesn’t touch any food that may go on his plate. But even as she takes these precautions, she rolls her eyes as if she is doing them in vain.
I’ve asked her before if she’s ever seen my dad get sick from eating a banana. She recalled that on a vacation one time he ate a popsicle that apparently had fresh bananas pureed into the mix. Having seen her skepticism to his allergy claims, I assumed that nothing extreme happened to him. But when I asked if he got sick she simply stated, “Yep. He threw up and was sick all day.”
Hahahaha! Um…okay…so then YES, mom, I think he must be allergic. I think in reality, rather than her actually doubting his banana barfing, it just annoys her to have to cater to one more individual in the family….
