Here is my contribution to this evening’s Independece Day barbecue:
Why has no senator introduced banning flag eating as an amendment?
Here’s how to make it:
- Toss 5 sliced bananas in lemon juice (or your flag will be red brown and blue).
- Arrange about 35 blackberries in the upper left-hand corner of a serving tray. These are the stars.
- Arrange lemony banana slices onto the rest of the tray. Shoot for as many stripes as will fit.
- Top bananas with quartered (or halved, if they’re small) strawberries. Spear together with toothpicks.
Note: If you are not serving this immediately, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
I wish I’d had fancier toothpicks…
