Fruit Flag with title

For the 4th of July I was looking for something festive to make/do for our guests that were coming over. I decided to make the Fruit Flag I saw on Pinterest since it looked pretty easy and like it wouldn’t take too long. This flag was definitely super easy to put together…and who doesn’t love fruit?! I used strawberries, bananas, and blueberries, but you could really use any fruit that brings out the red, white, and blue in the flag. I paired the flag with the Fluffy Fruit Dip and had a delicious and refreshing treat. I also discovered that bananas in the fruit dip is a whole lot of deliciousness!

Happy creating!

We had some very ripe bananas so what to do? Make banana bread, of course! I found a recipe on food.com that was claiming to be the Best Banana Bread and decided to give this recipe a try.

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a loaf pan.
2. Cream the butter and sugar together.
3. Add eggs and bananas and combine all ingredients well.
4. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the mixture.

I was worried that putting the bread in the refrigerator would make it dry out, but the bread stayed moist and delicious over several days! This truly is a delicious banana bread recipe- the best, though? I’m not sure…I’ll have to try out a few more recipes!
