Fruit Salad

My daughter turned two this week and it made me realize it was the second anniversary of something else. Towards the end of my pregnancy with her and right after she was born I craved fruit something awful. Well, maybe awful isn't a good word since it's a very good thing to crave! I remember in the hospital ordering a big fruit bowl with my meals and eating that fruit like it was candy. So, after I came home word spread of my craving. When my sister came over that first week she had a special "package" from my Dad. A large bowl of his home-made fruit salad. Yum! And guess what? He has continued to keep me stocked on this fruit salad for two years. What an awesome Dad! I get a big Tupperware bowl of it just about every week. It is a mixture of apples, grapes, oranges and pineapples. I eat it almost every day with my lunch and my now two year old daughter likes to pick out the grapes and oranges for herself :) I don't always crave it like I used to but how easy is it to eat fruit when it is all cut up nice and right there front & center in the fridge. I'm still lovin' it.

Thanks Dad!
