Wandering Thoughts: How do you measure a banana?
Sunday, October 07, 2012
Just curious about something...we went grocery shopping yesterday, which happens about once a week at this house. I always tell Richard to get the smallest bananas he can find (not those itty bitty 2-3 inch kind, but small). Then I got to thinking about measuring bananas and I wonder how you all measure them? I usually "eyeball" them and decide if it looks like a small vs. a medium vs. a large, but when bananas are tracked, it is according to inches. So, for example, an extra small banana is less than 6 inches.
But, where do you measure them and how? With a flexible tape measure along the outside bigger curve? Along the inside smaller curve? From the top to the bottom in a straight line? And, does anyone care? Maybe I'm the only one who eats them! LOL!!
Just curious about how you do it! I never noticed until today that there is an entry on the tracker for grams of banana. Maybe I'll weigh one and see how much it weighs just for kicks!
Have a great week, SparkFriends, with or without bananas!
