Strawberry Banana Orange bread

I bought the most beautiful strawberries the other day at Trader Joe's.  As I have previously mentioned, I have a soft spot for berries of any kind and am totally content to just pop them in my mouth, sprinkle them over cereal, yogurt, throw them in a smoothie - you name it!! I love them in ALL forms.

And I love trying new things, so was delighted when one of the many blogs I follow, shared a recipe for Strawberry Banana Bread with Lemon Glaze

I made a few alterations, adding 1 tsp of orange zest, chopped the strawberries, and made an orange glaze instead.  Next time I will try adding some orange extract to the bread recipe to see if that orange flavor will pop a bit more!

In her instructions, she made three loaves. But I opted for two large loaves and was really happy with how they turned out.  The banana was the predominant flavor, but the strawberries surprised the taste buds with almost every bite. It was a great combination!
