Over the past seven years, I have had lunch with my friend Ken Alexander just about every Monday or Tuesday. The menu is usually pretty standard with a can of Progresso soup, some oyster crackers and maybe a cookie or two or three. A couple of weeks ago, he shook up my palate with two delightfully competing tastes and textures, pistachios and sliced bananas. The combo made my taste buds stand up and take notice and smile. I'd recommend it.
