First Grade Here We Come.....(Guest Blogger)

Today I am so lucky and excited to have a very special guest. While most of you have never met him, you've heard me talk about him many times. In honor of his FIRST day of FIRST grade, he is going to share a special recipe w/ you. (And yes, I helped word it a little, typed it up and helped w/ the recipe, but in my eyes, this is ALL him!)

Hi everyone! I'm Alex and I'm not a food blogger, but I'm a major food eater! You might call her your "Everyday Mom", but she is my Mommy every day. I'm excited to be here to share a yummy recipe w/ you. I love fruit. I love fruit salad. I even love the Wiggles song "Fruit Salad". Since this is my first week of 1st grade, this will probably end up in my new Spiderman lunch box (Thanks Maa Ma). But it's also really good for a mid day snack, light dessert, or even a quick breakfast.Hope you like it too.

Lemon Fruit Salad


1 c. sliced strawberries
1 c. blueberries
1 c. sliced black seedless grapes
*These are the fruits we used. Feel free to add your favorites*

Dressing:
6 oz. container lemon yogurt
3/4 TBS honey
3/4 TBS lemon juice

In a medium bowl, combine fruit. In a small bowl, mix together dressing ingredients. Pour over fruit and combine well. Chill before serving.

Mixing the fruit. Mommy cut it up so I didn't have to use a knife!



Mixing the dressing


The finished product. Yummy!
