Memorial Day




As we all prepare for our get togethers today, getting the grill ready, the food and the table.
Or going on a picnic at the beach, fishing, boating on the lake,
let us remember the true reason why we have this day off
to celebrate this Memorial Day.



This is the day to remember and honor the fallen.
Let us not forget those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country in the global war on terrorism.
Fighting for our country, as well as helping other countries
get there freedom and peace.



Fresh Fruit Salad


Ingredients:

1 whole watermelon
1/2 of a cantaloupe
3 large mangoes

Tools:

Fillet knife
Melon baller
Spoon
Marker or pen or pencil

Directions:

  • Draw lines with your marker, pen or pencil for the placement of the basket opening and handle. The handle shoul be about 2 inch wide. You can draw a straight line, curve or zigzag, or whichever pattern you wish for the handle and opening of the basket. Be creative!
  • With your knife cut the handle first, then the opening, avoiding cutting through the base of your handle. Remove sections carefully.
  • With your melon baller, scoop out flesh as much melon balls as you can.
  • And set aside in a separate bowl. Scoop out remaining flesh with spoon.
  • Fill back in with the watermelon balls you scooped out, cantaloupe and mango balls. You can add honeyballs if so desired.
