We had two sets of neighbors over this past Friday evening for dinner. One of the ladies is allergic to eggs, which eliminates quite a few things from a dinner and dessert menu when you think about it...so I was in a bit of a meal-planning quandry.
As I was sharing this with Cody, he said, "MOM! I know what we could make for her! Since she can't eat eggs, we can make what I saw on Sandra Lee's show...Semi-homemade. FRUIT KABOBS! It's really easy, you just take a bunch of pieces of fruit, like strawberries, pineapple, melon, grapes, and then you know, put 'em on a stick! That's what you should do!"
So, my five year-old, as it turns out, is a better and more creative meal planner than I. Sigh.
They actually were quite beautiful and enjoyed by all. I also made little angel foodcake cups and filled them with vanilla pudding and topped them with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries and added a little whipped cream. Very pretty, fresh, and yummy! I only wish I'd taken pictures.
So...just in case any of you were looking for dessert ideas, you know, my five year-old would be happy to help you.
