Coffee Date! Blue Blueberry Banana Bread

Coffee Date! Blue Blueberry Banana Bread

Please share if you love it!

There is no better way to start the day than with coffee, banana bread, and a good friend.

I’m not talking about grabbing a latte at your local Starbucks and sitting in a noisy room full of people, but sitting at the kitchen table in the warmth of a friend’s home, sipping coffee and nibbling on fresh baked banana bread.

That’s how I spent last Friday with Pam. I invited myself to her home for coffee and brought this light and lemony blueberry banana bread from Dr. Cookie’s Cookbook. I also presented Pam with a huge bag of celery. Pam’s husband thought this was an interesting gift and proceeded to tease me, saying that most people bring flowers, not celery. What can I say? I had too much celery and needed to share.
