LIMPET NUMMIE

Take all but a third of a banana and mash it.  Place the mashed banana in a circle on a plate. Take the English Muffin and place it on top of the banana. Put some sliced banana on top of the muffin to create the curve of the shell. Spread Peanut Butter on it, then use small amounts of Jam to create the different colors/stripes on the shell. Use the rest of the banana for the two sensors in front.
