Feelin Fruity

During the summer, there is nothing like good, yummy, refreshing fruit! I eat fruit a lot and at least have it once or twice a day. Last night I got a watermelon at the grocery store and it was SOOO good! It was so refreshing and it was seedless, which makes it even better. I hate it when I'm trying to eat watermelon, but constantly spitting the seeds out - just makes it hard to enjoy.

A few weeks ago I went to a live concert at the Memphis Botanic Gardens. Everyone takes blankets and lawn chairs and sits outside under the stars and listens to music. This night was Pat Benatar and she rocked. I took some goodies and one thing I took were grapes on skewers. I was just going to wash some grapes and put them in a container but then I thought, hmmmm . . . how bout I put them on skewers. They were a great hit. It was so easy for everyone to just grab a skewer of grapes and being where we were, it was much easier to eat then grabbing a handful or putting them on a plate and rolling off.

This would be great to do for a party as well, which I plan on doing!

Technically, a tomato is a fruit (something I still can't figure out . .) I fixed a yummy salad the other night with tomatoes, avocado, fresh garlic and poured some Italian dressing over it and then topped it off with some Parmesan cheese. It was very good!!!

Some of our other favorite fruits in the summer include, strawberries, kiwi, cantaloupe, peaches and fresh pineapple!!! So how bout you, what's your favorite fruit in the summer?

I'm totally with you on the watermelon. I buy the seedless kind and use a little melon baller and fill up tupperware with little balls of watermelon. :) YUM! Heirloom tomatoes are another fave--any tomatoes, really. I'm a regular at my local farmer's market in the summer.

I love watermelon too but hubs doesn't. In fact, he doesn't really like fruit at all.
