Who Could Resist this Fruit Salad?
May 4, 2015 9 Comments
I seem to be on a kick to beautify the fruit and vegetable world.
I have heard from many that small steps lead to big changes and I have to say that I am a fan of this thinking.
What if using a star cookie cutter on watermelon makes it into the treat that you desire and you leave the cookies alone? Cool, right?
In my school district, they are talking about stopping the birthday cakes, cupcakes, and juice that parents bring to school in order to share their child’s birthday with the class. I find this a bit heavy handed.
Instead, I would like to offer suggestions for cupcake alternatives (such as the fruit salad above). It was super fast to make and you can use a few blueberries (they are expensive) and it will still look amazing.
All you do is slice the watermelon into thin sheets and cut with a star shaped cookie cutter (or whatever shape you like). Kids love helping with this task.
I am not sure where you put the candles but what child wouldn’t love this?
Here are a few more ideas for those school districts trying to limit treats:
- Mini-cupcakes instead of large ones
- Birthday pineapples (might work)
- Strawberry cheesecake bites
I am sure all of you have thought of an alternative to mega-cupcakes for a child’s birthday. Please share below.
