What's Red, White & Blue and is Also Good for You?

The answer to this riddle is Calli's Berry Kabobs. With all of the hot dogs and burgers everyone will be eating this July 4th why not sneak a little fruit on your plate?

These could not be easier. In fact I have my six-year-old make them. You simply thread berries and marshmallows on a popsicle stick. The one pictured uses blueberries and strawberries. Blackberries and raspberries are pretty too. These can be displayed standing up in a pretty juice glass or a piece of floral foam.

Another option is to set up a "kabob bar" where bowls of berries and marshmallows are set out and everyone creates their own stick. For this weekend, I bought a bag of holiday inspired red, white and blue marshmallows to use on the kabobs.

So, this weekend, while I am scurrying like mad to prepare for our July 4th get-together my daughter will be busy making her soon-to-be-famous berry creations! Keeping her busy and having her make something that she will be proud to show our guest is a win-win.

Happy 4th everyone. God bless America!!!!
