Thursday, Whats for dinner??
Tired- woke up early and made the fruit salad. It came out really pretty and was a big hit at her picnic. You can really use any kind of fruit you like, but here's what I did for this one:
Tropical Fruit Salad
1 large pineapple, carefully cut in half and flesh scooped out, diced, core discarded
1 pint raseberries
2 cups blue berries
2 kiwis, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch rings, then quartered
2 mangos (ripe please, or don't use -I went through 4 to get 2) diced
1/4 watermelon diced
1 can manderine oranges packed in juice if you can find them and drained
1 lb strawberries, diced
mint, chopped fine and clusters of leaves for garnish
Combine all fruit in a large bowl and toss gently to coat - add chopped mint. Scoop into
pineapple boats (or use a bowl) and garnish with fresh mint sprigs.
Now for tonight -since it was a special day for Jess, she gets to pick the menu. She wants meat sauce and pasta and garlic bread (i'm adding salad)
