Fruit Kabobs ;

i smell spring !
dont you?
the days are getting warmer, which is great news for me because i cant stand the cold!
i know California is one of the warmer places in the states, especially during winter, but for someone whos teeth chatter uncontrollably in the freezer section of a grocery store.. its painful!
i still sleep with 2 THICK blankets in 55 degree nights.
Oh, im trailing off..
i ment to bring up some  *special news ;
I HAVE NEW LEAF BABIES !
yayyyy !
i have just recently adopted 2 little fruit plants~
one is a strawberry  & the other is a "super sweet 100 hybrid" baby tomato plant !
i cant wait till they start poppin` their fruit !
i love vegetable / fruit gardens, and i admire anyone with a green thumb.
i havent  cared for any plants since... i was really young, living back in Texas.
i use to help my mom raise lettuce & lots of jalapenos (which would grow to be HUGE ! some even managed to grow 6inches.)
we had very impressive peppers, and they were very easy to grow, if i remember correctly.
But me being less than 10 years old at the time, i guess it doesnt really count for a green thumb, haha.
Although ive only had my plants for a week, i can already see a few little green strawberries beginning to grow !
(nothing yet from the tomato plant though, boo . )
Anyway, since spring is in the air,
i was in the mood for some sweet, fresh, & colorful fruit.
First thing that came to mind was Fruit kabobs with some lightly powdered sugar. Mmm!
Use whatever fruits youre craving that day, no need to
follow this recipe exactly~
Recipe ;
- 1 mango, cubed
- Strawberries, halved & sliced
- Banana, sliced
- Blueberries
- Skewers
- Powdered sugar (optional)
Just skewer them in any order & sprinkle some
powdered sugar if you like .

A Presentable Mango
Whenever guests come over, id usually serve some
fruit as dessert, & mango are my personal favorite!
isnt this such a cute way to present a mango?

Directions ;
1 mango *Serves 2 ;
Cut 2 slices of mango off from the flat sides, to
avoid cutting into the large seed within.
Carefully, make 3 lines going across horizontally &
3 lines vertically,  (try not to cut through the skin.)
Then, Just press from underneath and "pop" it up!


Assorted Fruits
(i just cut off the squares from the mango picture up above)

  1. haha, that's cute. i like how you even used the strawberry tops to separate the fruits from the fingers, as sort of a gripping point. that's preeetty clever!

    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, wonderful blog!
