Banana Refrigerator Cake

Eisenhower says the enemy is whipped! Millions of Nazis are surrendering. But our victory has brought a new problem: we are now feeding millions of people in Europe. The Nazis destroyed farms and field. They killed livestock. They took anything they could carry and left people starving and destitute.

Now she knows the bananas didn’t grow in our Victory Garden but they weren’t expensive and they are very healthy.
