So yesterday morning something was smelling really funky in my kitchen. I had a bowl of really ripe bananas that I thought may have been the reason for the smell. I decided to make some muffins with them but DS4 wanted chocolate chips in them too. He loves chocolate just about as much as I do so I thought it sounded like a pretty good idea.
