Strawberry Banana Bread

What a weekend!

90 degree weather, good friends, lots of food, and a nice relaxing day at the pool. What more could a girl want?

No rain! That's what.

And some good snacking bread to munch on while I don't clean up from the cookout.

I made this early this morning to share with some great friends. They loved it.

Now as I procrastinate in my cleaning up, I am watching it rain sideways across my porch. Stupid storm is ruining my night time plans of watching fireworks and eating funnel cakes.

I doubled the recipe to accommodate for the 8 other people who would be snacking on my bread. The bread is delicious!
