Question What to do with a banana leaf

I have a 6 foot long, 20 inch wide (at it's widest) banana leaf. Beside the obvious "make compost" what should I do with it?

I was thinking about making tamales...anyone know how to make tamales with banana leaves? I had some on Cozumel and they were amazing.

Any other ideas? My wife says I should fan her with it while feeding her grapes.

I googled borachos for a recipe, and all I got was a bunch of links to Spanish speaking drunk people! Oh, and one recipe for drunken beans! Frijoles boracho.

I guess that means I"m probably going to wind up wearing a toga and catering to her highness. Now to go buy some grapes....

Don't know if this would be similar to what you remember but if you combine banana leaf with tamales and google that.....you come up with recipes

Tamales: Basic Tamales - MEXICO HOT . . OR NOT! - MEXICAN COOKING,
