'Tis the season...

For fruit!!! Pineapple, Tuscan Cantaloupe, Watermelon, Red Grapes, Blueberries, Blackberries, Fresh Strawberries picked THIS MORNING from the Farmer's Market...

It all started at the market actually. The strawberry stand was about to pack up. Sunday is their last day. And they had ONE flat of strawberries left. The lady picked them this morning.
You could smell them from our house. Its actually what drew us to the market.
Okay I'm kidding. But they looked amazing. So we bought them.

Then we went to Fred Meyer and went on a fresh fruit frenzy. Ahh alliterations.
Anyway, 7 billion dollars worth of fruit later [not really], we had this.

So I cut it all up.
And to note, this is not all of the fruit from the first picture. There are six various sized Tupperware containers in the freezer with blueberries, blackberries, grapes, and strawberries.
Perfect for smoothies. And strawberry shortcake. And strawberry lemonade. Which is where those random lemons come into play. But not until tomorrow.
Then layered it for my dinner party tomorrow. Ahh. I'm in love. I also made a smaller [but not much smaller] version of this for Jarvis and took it to him. And a mini version that I will take with me to work tomorrow. And there are a couple bowls of cantaloupe and watermelon in the fridge as well.

Is this making your mouth water?

Lastly, I have about 12 of these cute little fruit baskets and I don't know what to do with them. I wan to do something fun, but I don't know. Any ideas?


  1. You just need some fresh whipped cream to top that great looking fruit!

  2. Looks yummy! It must be the season because I made a fruit salad on Friday.

    If you got the green baskets at the farmers market, you can sometimes take them back to the venders to be reused....
