i know. i'm one day late. but i got a little too busy last night to do any posting... eating BLT's, buying diapers, tailor-sitting on the couch, reading a super interesting book on breastfeeding, watching leslie knope and tom haverford.. you know. anyway, isn't it nice that my craving for fruit salsa coincided with cinco de mayo? i know. it wasn't until i was home from school and already in the process of making it that i realized how perfect it was!

so, it's fruit salsa. there isn't much to it, except for a few minutes with a cutting board and remembering to break it out every once in awhile. it's best eaten immediately, but the more it sits together in the bowl, the more the juices fuse and make a nice salsa-like sauce.


make sure to give each fruit a pretty fine dice. you'll be surprised how much you like the tiny bits of fruit all together in your mouth.. way better that a traditional fruit salad.

if you want to make the homemade cinnamon crisps to go with this: lightly brush some tortillas with oil, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, cut into strips (a pizza cutter works nicely for this), and bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes.

and actually, we ate some of ours with regular salty tortilla chips yesterday, and it was pretty delish, too.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
