Today I have a fun treat for your 4th of July party. Ramona from Curry for Comfort is here to share it with you. Ramona and I started blogging around the same time. I am a big fan of curry, so I really enjoying reading and trying her recipes. If you like curry too, but can’t always find the ingredients, you need to check back during the Colorado Wildfires Bake Sale. Ramona put together a Curry Starter Kit, that I can’t wait to bid on! Her website is full of all kinds of great recipes to try the spices out on.
Hello Everyone! My name is Ramona and I am so happy to come over from Curry and Comfort to guest post at Erins’ blog today. I have really enjoyed getting to know Erin this last year since we both started our blogs around the same time and we also have sons the same age. So I knew these Patriotic Fruit Skewers were a perfect fun treat for her to make with her son.
My son is actually the person that saw these very cute Patriotic Fruit Skewers in a Target circular and asked me to make them. I was more than thrilled to do so because they looked so fun, pretty healthy and a breeze to put together. They will also make a very festive treat for any 4th of July party. My kids loved helping me assemble them and they loved eating them even more. Hope you all enjoy this great idea my son and I saw (thanks to the folks at Target) and make it a part of your 4th of July celebrations as well.
Thanks Erin for having me guest post today!!
small star cookie cutter
Note: I will not give you quantities because you can make as many or as few as you like.
Slice 1/2 inch thick slices of watermelon and take a star shaped cookie cutter to cut out stars.
Then skewer in order with the blue (blueberries), white(marshmallow), red (strawberry). Use the watermelon stars to separate the red, white and blue pattern and finish off the top of the skewer. Chill or serve immediately. Enjoy.
Note: You can cut the strawberries in half if you like.
**Thank you very much Ramona for posting today! I love this fun skewer idea. Not only are you getting your kids to eat fruit, but they are having fun and it fits with the holiday perfectly! Tell your son Thank You!!
