Banana Muffins (Again)

 It's that time of week again, where I have to start thinking of that onerous task of making nutritional balanced and creative lunches again.  By this time of year the monotony  starts to get to me.  I love cooking and baking, but when I HAVE to, then sometimes it becomes a task.
Today, I am not creative at all, and went to the freezer for a bag of  "rotten bananas" - not a gross as you might think, I HATE bananas with brown spots on them (eat them when they are green and crunchy) and when they get a brown spot on them, I peel them and put them in a Ziploc bag in the freezer.  Very quick and easy to defrost in microwave and use in muffins.
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
