Mashed potatoes

Barbecue sauce

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and continue cooking, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in the paprika and dry mustard. Add the broth and bring to a boil while stirring with a whisk. Add the remaining ingredients, reduce the heat and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

Fried bananas

  2. Cut the bananas in half lengthwise.
  3. With adult supervision, heat the oil in a large saucepan or deep skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the bananas until golden on both sides. Drain well on paper towels.
