Christmas - so little time, so many things to eat.

When I was a child, we were revolted at the thought of having to eat fruit cake.  We knew that there was going to be a resounding smack if anyone said yuck within earshot of the dinner table, so the safest thing to do when dessert came around was to claim that we were too full to eat another crumb.  Of course, these days I'm approaching anything edible with more sophisticated taste buds, and can make quick work of a slice or two of fruit cake.  As evidenced by my expanding girth...
In the southern hemisphere Christmas arrives in the middle of summer.  There is an abundance of fruit and fresh vegetables to choose from, and during the very hot days a cool fruit snack is much more suitable than fruit cake.  
Here are some quick ideas I'm going to try.
 Strawberries and cream Santa.
 Marshmallow, strawberry, banana, grape Santa.


  1. What fantastic ideas, I love those Santa's.

    Happy December 3.

  2. Yes we do need fruit and cool things to eat instead of the heavy cake. Great ideas
