I can't really pinpoint when my dad first started bringing home the powdery mixture, as white as sugar and as fine as beach sand. He'd step into the kitchen and sprinkle it -- three grams at a time -- into some orange juice and stir to the point it crested the edge of the glass. He'd serve it with breakfast. One glass for each of us. Drink up. Had I been older, I might have protested. But I was just a kid, living in an era when the only things you were supposed to avoid eating were paper and dirt.

Combining with chops that were simmered in a curry powder, cumin and orange juice mixture, adds an exotic touch. Choose firm bananas with a hint of green at the tip for cooking. They will hold their texture and are not too sweet. Store ripe bananas in the refrigerator for a week or slightly more. The peels may darken, but inside, the fruit is good and fresh.
