  1. Peel bananas and split in half lengthwise. Place two halves in a long dish, and add three scoops of ice cream in between the banana halves.  (Jeff requests that the chocolate ice cream be placed as far away from his beloved vanilla as possible.)

  2. Top with sauces of choice, whipped cream, cherries and chopped nuts.
