I love a lot of things but I REALLY......



love
FRUIT SALAD.






I love oranges
cherries
pineapple
apples
pecans

I don't, however, like bananas in my fruit salad....
I sprinkle just a tad of sugar (sub, as in this case)
sprinkle with FRUIT FRESH,
which keeps the fruits nice colors longer
and we like it with a dollop of
REAL WHIPPED CREME.


...and I also LOVE TO PLAY WITH MY FOOD...
The above is done with COLORED PENCIL in PhotoScape.






 GLASS BLOCKS almost make you dizzy....
but fun.
and round and round we go...
Get your
TWIRL on...
 



*shhhhh, JEEVES here, with his little rounded nose up in the air,
is actually a   PRETTY SWEET FELLA,
despite his UPPITY WAYS.

I asked him where he got those FANCY PANTS and he said,
"At the FANCY PANTS store....."

If you are looking, NANA DIANA, you will recognize this cutie bowl I am using....:>)
CHERRIES are one of my favorite things to eat....I like them fresh, canned or in jars. I'm not one bit picky when it comes to CHERRIES.

I hope ya'll have a FRUITY KIND OF DAY...
full of BLESSINGS,
LOVE and FUN.

Well BJ, I finally found one thing we don't agree on. I am not fond of cherries! Love fruit salad...but always with bananas...no cherries....

Reading you posts always make me smile, or laugh. I adore you sense of humor and you always have the best food posts!

My hubby chop cantelope and watermelon every week so we have it daily: A large mixed bowl of fruit every morning. Love the cherries!

Refreshing! I put mango juice in my fruit salad to add a little sweetness. Coconut and chopped walnuts, too. A dollop of whipped cream makes everything delicious. Have a great day. Tammy

Love fruit salad too but has to have berries in it

ThreeOldKeys said...

Stripey Pants Store. That's one we don't have around here.

During the winter I get a can of peaches and stir Fruit Fresh into some of the juice. Then I add apple and pear chunks along with grapes ... they stay beautiful.

But nothing beats a summertime all-fresh fruit salad ... I'll have a helping of yours, before you put it in the Photo blender, please!

Paloma said...

Are you sitting down? Good because I am about to tell you that my husband had NEVER in his life had a fruit salad. Yes, you read me right. Never. Mine was the very first one! I know, I know! I was shocked too!!

Shay said...

You really should be one of those people who photographs tablescapes and food for magazines BJ. Your pictures always look so fabulous.

I am a big fan of Summer fruits and fruit salad and your post just made me want to make some. Sadly it's fruit crumble and hot pie weather here.
