Yesterday we celebrated my grandmother's 70th birthday! My mom and I were assigned to bring fruit salad for dessert (as well as a cake of course), so we stopped at Wegman's before heading to the party. We decided we didn't want any ordinary fruit salad, and since Wegman's has so many great and fresh fruits we tried something new! Have you ever heard or Uniq or Ugli fruit? Neither had I, until yesterday. It is the size of a grapefruit, but is much softer and greener in color. I'll let you see for yourself...
My little cousin Nicki was just as intrigued as I was. This fruit is more sour than an orange but not as bitter as a tangerine or grapefruit. If you buy one of these be sure to get all of the "veins" out since they tend to have a bitter taste.
We added strawberries, blackberries, mini tangerines, pineapple, watermelon, grapes and uniq fruit to the salad to enjoy for dessert!
How trendy is my grandmother? She makes headbands too! I have learned all of my craftiness from her. Girlfriend has serious talent and I can only hope that one day I will be as gifted as her with my sewing machine.
Of course Ollie came to the party as well! It was the first time he met many of my aunts and cousins. He loves meeting new people.
You can't really tell, but Ollie in the middle of all of my little cousins and loving every minute of the attention!
Happy birthday Mammy! We love you.
If you can't tell, I love being home with my family. There isn't anywhere else I would rather be...
...Ollie agrees :)
Jeff and I are in the process of checking off another item from our Bucket List. It is probably one of the must difficult things on there. Want to know what it is? Check back later tonight to see! There will also be a giveaway coming later in the week so stay tuned for that as well...
