A Plethora of Picnics

Fruit Salad in Watermelon at Picnic

What constitutes a plethora of picnics? How does three in one (Memorial Day) weekend sound? And at each picnic I went to, the first question I was asked was “did you bring ice cream?”

A note: ice cream doesn’t hold up well when the plan is to sit out in the park all day in 80+ degree weather.

So, no I didn’t bring ice cream. Instead, I brought fruit salad.

Carved Watermelon Fruit Salad

Yes, my watermelon says “Hello.” No, I can’t tell you how to do that. I just kind of went at it freehand with the $4 Ikea knife set.

Once carved, I scooped out all the watermelon and filled it with fruit salad.

The fruit salad is watermelon, cantaloup, granny smith apples, pears, and bananas. This guy wasn’t invited to the party:
