Resolution Fruit Salad

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Good Afternoon, Darlings!

I know a lot of you make resolutions when the new year rolls around. Me, too.  This year my resolutions include seeking out unusual, off the beaten path experiences and eating a bit healthier.  Saving more money wouldn’t hurt, either.

So, Eric and I set out to the grocery store to gather up the ingredients for a perfect fruit salad.  A wonderful way for us to start each day.  In the past I have purchased the ready made salads, but one tiny container can cost upwards of $4.00 – crazy!  While I was in another part of the store, Eric chose a ripe cantalope, juicy watermelon, succulent pineapple and containers of gorgeous berries – blueberries, strawberries and raspberries (my favorite!)

The next morning my sweet husband cut up all this fruit and filled three large containers – all for about $15 – a substantial savings and with fruit we like best. We call it our resolution fruit salad and boy is it tasty. Take a look:
