Today my son made a gorgeous fruit salad.

{Warning: This has nothing to do keeping kosher, nor with doing it on a budget. I am writing this post because my kids support me in my crazy blogging dream – and when they ask me to do something, I like to say YES! if I can.}

Today my son made a gorgeous fruit salad for lunch.

He’s five and he asked if he could make a fruit salad. How can you say no to that, right??

So we washed grapes and an apple, and peeled a banana. He got out the cutting board and the really sharp knife (it’s not actually that sharp, but it wasn’t a butter knife, either.)

All by himself, he chopped the fruit into lovely little pieces and filled up a plastic orange bowl with his efforts. He got out four bowls, spoons and a way-too-big serving spoon to feed fruit salad to me, his sister and his daddy.

But before we dug in, he asked me:

Mommy, will you take a picture of my fruit salad?

Oh! I know! You should blog about this!

You should write, ‘Today my son made a gorgeous fruit salad for lunch.’

And so I am. I love that boy.

The End.
