 Everyone knows not to grocery shop when you’re hungry.  We all do it anyway and end up with a cart load of food we probably will never get around to eating.  You also shouldn’t grocery shop with a two year old, regardless if she’s hungry or not.  Every time I’m in the produce section, she’s super excited to see those bright yellow bananas.  “Bananas!”, she always squeals when she rides by them.  Will she eat those bananas?  Nope.  Does she scream if you don’t put them in the cart? Yes.  It’s okay though, that means plenty of opportunities for baking this Chocolate Chunk Banana Caramel Poke Cake.  You would be squealing about bananas too.
