Thanks for the nice compliment Casie. I have plenty of pictures of my garden but for the moment I'll put another one.
I hope nobody is getting bored of my plants.

Nice garden! Wish I had one like this.... sigh
If cutting your nanas' leaves away is an emotionally painful option (it would for me lol!) you could probably buy frozen leaves for really cheap at south asian markets. My favourite nana leaf dessert is some kind of sticky rice with bananas in it and coconut milk, all wrapped with leaves and steamed for hours. Tastes like heaven!

Hey Jellyfish - that dessert sounds mouthwatering. If you can find a name or recipe - post it here. I'm sure that both mskitty and I are dying for it!

yeah, me too. I tasted some of those but without the bananas but they put sugar or honey instead wrapped in banana leaves.
and thanks to cookiecow, jelleyfish and mskitty for the encouragement and support.

You can take a look at this: http://www.fao.org/inpho/content/doc.../AE617e/35.htm

I don't understand the whole recipe (sometimes confusing), but you can experiment. You could probably use canned coconut milk instead of fresh coconut, and replace the filling with whatever you feel like.

I will try it next weekend!

Wow Celine - that is a formidable recipe and obviously some things were lost in the translation, but with a little experimentation it could be really good.

I was amazed by the cooking of the parcels for 6-8 hours - who would have thunk it would take so long! No problem with the fresh coconut as the gardeners are coming tomorrow to cut the coconuts off our 3 trees - the darn things are falling like bombs and each time we get up to a tonne of nuts off them. We pass them on to neighbours, the gardeners and even the dogs get to eat coconut - they love them.

that recipe sounds really good...but it needs a major overhaul for me to cook it. you could probably use jasmine rice, or even regular rice and cook it the way chinese do( sticky rice and just add coconut and the milk in the cooking of the rice ). and it cooks for 6-8 hours? you could probably put it in a water bath( like one would for cheesecake) in the oven on 350 *f - 425 *f for about 2- 4 hours. that might make it more manageable time wise. next time i go to cookvegas might have to find nana leaves and give it a try. it does sound very tasty!!! could even put some (drained if canned) citrus in it too.

MsKitty:
A suggestion. If you use regular or jasmine rice as a substitute for sticky rice, it is not going to be as good taste as the original recipe.
You can buy a sticky rice in any oriental store in 1 lb or 2 lb bag and it won't cost as much as you may think.
Also if the taste is not as good as you may want add sugar on top or better still syrup or coconut syrup. It is a desert type of thing.

Also the banana wrapped sticky rice should be cooked in a pot big enough to immersed all the rolls in boiling water. And the lid must be very tight so there is a pressurized steam inside the pot. You can do this by wrapping around the lid with cotton T-shirt. I think 1 and a half hour is plenty to cook the rolls completely also please don't cook the rolls inside the oven. The sticky rice will get hard and crumble. What you want is moist and sticky when cooked just like in the picture. When you unwrap a roll cut a spoonful, roll it in sugar and enjoy. You'll find that it will be hard to unstick it from your tongue or palate and that's the fun .

ok thats it...im coming to your house to rob you of your nanas and flowers. lol. your yard is so lovely. did you draw out a plan or did you just stick them wherever? i have actually drawn out one im just hopeing it will look as nice as your and randys after a few yrs. my daughter bought a croton at walmart last nite. she bought it for me and then said it was hers. she hates plants. im just amazed at her. it is the red, yellow and orange polka dotted kind.they call it the bush on fire. it was 2.58. they had the yellow and green, but she liked the red in it. it is such a wild looking plant. its going to be put in a nicer pot today if it rains and i cant get outside to play in the dirt.

Would you believe that 90% of my plants are in pots? Those bananas are in pots so are the flowers. Thanks for the compliment Mskitty.
