This will be our first fourth of July back home since we moved last summer. I’ve loved getting reacquainted with the place I grew up, and being close enough to family to share in traditions and holidays.
For the fourth, one of my sisters is driving down with her family which means that our little place is going to be packed with kids, laughter, and fun. In preparation, I’m working to get some of the food ready today, so we can enjoy our time together tomorrow.
My nephew that’s coming, claims I am the best cook he knows. Someday he’ll learn that I’m mediocre at best, however I’m not quite ready to burst his bubble. 😉
In light of my amazing-aunt status, no boring bowl of fruit for us. We are going with fruit kabobs!
The best part has been that my kids can get in on the action and enjoy creating something fun for their cousins. (Not to mention we got to practice their fine motor skills and patterns.)
With all their help, we were able to conquer our fun dessert for tomorrow in a matter of minutes. (Score!)
- Using your cookie cutters, cut fun shapes from your fruit. (Make sure they are thick enough to stay on the skewers.
- Load the fruit on the skewers. (If you aren’t planning on eating them until later, you can spritz the fruit with a little bit of lemon juice to maintain freshness.)
