Ladies' meeting was last night, and I had been asked to bring fruit that was creative. Well, okay...So I brainstormed and this is what I came up with. No pinterest, no google, just my brain. And yes, they were a mild hit. :-)
I used a small, plastic ice cream scoop to make the cantaloupe balls. I have a melon baller, but it would have made the centers way too small. So I threaded a grape, cantaloupe ball/banana slice, and grape on the skewer.
A toothpick all the way through:
Grapes on the ends and another toothpick all the way through:
Grapes on the ends again, and mash the stem into the lettuce! All done! My husband plucked the grapes off the cluster and washed them, and he cut the bananas up. It was fun not doing this by myself. :-) As we were driving to ladies' meeting, I mused that I should have gotten kiwi and cut them in slices to use as leaves. Maybe next time...
Who am I, you ask?
In 2006 I had a stroke, and every day my husband encourages me to use my remaining brain cells to the best of my ability. I love to organize, make crafts, and go on adventures (safe ones). I hope that through my blog posts, you will be encouraged to accept and make the best of challenges God throws at your life.
