So the birthday party has come and gone, and the food disappeared just as fast as the time it took my daughter to turn one! Shes not one yet really, that won’t be until the 26th but the sentiment is still there. Time has flown, and I don’t think that I will ever know where exactly it went. On to the recipes! As I mentioned before I really wanted to go for fresh fruit, springtime feel. So on the side of platters of blackberries, blueberries, cantelope slices and pineapple, I tried to give the “junk food” a healthy touch. The kids actually loved it! we must have gone through three pounds of strawberries. This is the fruit salsa I made, with cinnamon sugar tortilla chips to pick up the dip with.
- 1 pound of strawberries
- 8 oz raspberries
- 2 golden delicious apples, peeled, cored and diced
- 2 kiwi’s peeled and diced
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 3 tbsp Jam of your choosing. (I had strawberry on hand)
mix everything so its coated and keep refridgerated. What is great about this recipe is after the party, and a day in the fridge it becomes perfect as a fruit filled ice cream topping! And then for the chips, you just take 10 or so tortillas, coat one side only with butter. I melted margarine in a bowl and brushed it on the tortilla. Then sprinkle the buttered side with cinnamon sugar, bake butter side up at 350 for 8 minutes.
It makes for a delicious dessert afterwords.
