Personalized Peels

It is Sunday evening... how many of you are packing lunches for your loved-ones? Anyone packing a banana in that lunch bag? This is a simple idea, but such a good one.

Send a message by writing on the peel of a banana with a pencil. Use pressure in order to make your message slowly appear.  By morning, your writing will be bold.

Write messages of sweet-nothings to warm their heart and yours. Or, use this as a clever way to send a reminder.

Credit for this idea goes to a long-time friend, Jordan, and her parents.  They were the type of family that you were lucky to spend your days (and many nights) with as you grew up.

  1. I was lucky to have my childhood days spent with YOU - I haven't come across the adventurous, creative, kindred-spirit friend replicated in anyone else! (Love the banana message, too. I had totally forgotten about this trick and plan on only using bananas from now on to write poetry.)
