Traditional Banana Split

We still have a couple more weeks of summer, well at least that is what the calender says. The weather doesn't seem to be agreeing though. We went to the fair on Tuesday and it was cold. I wore capris and a short sleeve shirt, because it was summer and I was going to the fair. I really needed jeans and a sweatshirt.

We still had a great time though. We got to check out the girl's projects and animals. My youngest niece got an honorable mention on her woodworking project. It was fun to see her so excited about it. We also ate the ever anticipated corndogs and a deep batter fried piece of cheese. Yes I ate fried cheese... and you know what it was good. I will probably need to take 10 extra walks this week to work it off :)

Well also checked out all the RVs that they had on display. We love to see the different configurations and say who will sleep where. What are some of your favorite things to do at the fair?

So today we are doing traditional banana splits. Enjoy!


1 Banana
3 scoops ice cream
3-4 strawberries, mashed
1/8 cup crushed pineapple
chocolate syrup
3 scoops whipped cream
Sprinkles, lots
3 maraschino cherries

Start with an empty banana split bowl... this isn't necessary, but fun!

Add the ice cream

Peel and cut the banana in half and add it to the ice cream.

Take 3-4 strawberries and mash them with a potato masher. Top over one scoop of ice cream.

Top another scoop of ice cream with the crushed pineapple.

Decorate the third scoop with chocolate syrup.

Add the scoops of whipped cream.

Sprinkle with sprinkles, lots and lots of sprinkles!

Add the cherries!

Eat and Enjoy! Isn't this the best dessert you don't have to wait for anything to cool :)
