Fruit & Melon Bowl
Fridays are my most favourite day of the week.
Apart from it being the last weekday before the weekend arrives, I love it because of Amplify's Fridays. Some of you might know of this youth ministry I'm in. Also known as Amplify, we meet every Fridays at 8pm and for the past weeks I've been helping out with the hospitality team, and put in charge of the food.
You know, refreshments and stuff for after the session ends.
And so far, it's been exciting and fun as the team and I try to come up with something original every week.
This week was supposed to be colourful and garden-like since we were doing a 4-part series known as God & Life. So it's supposed to be lively and what not.
So the team and I came up with this:
Pretty? I think it's lovely, the colours especially. Lydia and I was shopping at NTUC and brainstorming about how to put together a fruity-thing in a presentable fashion....
Then 'Eureka'! Melon balls I thought!
So we bought a honeydew and water melon. It felt boring so we decided to get these too:
Grapes and kiwis!
Aren't they pretty?
But the grapes, man, the grapes are really special. Know why?
Check out their size:
Not sure if you can see it properly but these grapes are reeeeally tiny. They're known as champagne grapes and we found it at NTUC. A box was about $3.80.
I'm not sure if they're called champagne grapes because champagne's made out of it. No matter what, I still like these grapes. They're really sweet and adorable! Geez I never knew grapes could be that tiny. Pretty things. Perfect for decorating any dessert I think.
So viola, we added these grapes to our fruit melon bowl and got a beautiful fruity combination! You noticed we used the watermelon skin as a bowl? Now that's called making full use of every part of a fruit. Cool eh?
I think this is a keeper. If I ever have a party, I'll definitely make this! So simple, so healthy and so picture perfect! :)
