                         Peanut Butter Whipped Mousse:
      2/3  Cup           Chilled Heavy Cream
    5      Tablespoons   Sugar
      1/3  Cup           Smooth Natural Peanut Butter
      1/2  Teaspoon      Vanilla Extract
                         Grilled Bananas:
    4                    Ripe But Not Overripe Bananas
    2      Tablespoons   Unsalted Butter -- Softened
                         Warm Chocolate Sauce (Optional)
 To make the mousse, whip the cream in a small bowl, gradually adding the 
 sugar.  When the cream holds soft peaks beat in the peanut butter and 
 vanilla extract just until smooth.  Cover and refrigerate.
 As the peanut butter mousse chills, prepare the bananas:  Leaving the 
 skins on, cut them in half lengthwise and rub the flesh with the soft 
 butter.  Place the banana halves on a rack over hot coals, flat side 
 down; keep them toward the edges of the grill if the coals are very hot.  
 Grill the bananas, without turning them, for about 8 to 10 minutes, 
 until the flesh is soft.
 Serve 2 halves per person, the ends touching, with a big spoonful of the 
 peanut butter whipped mousse in the middle.  Drizzle the chocolate sauce 
 here and there if you're using it.
