Every once in a while someone in the house will ask me what's for dinner, and I'll say "Mystery Dinner." This response always causes widespread panic as it means I'm trying a new recipe. As you might surmise, my family isn't all that fond of change. Some of the new recipes are keepers, others go by the wayside. But no matter what, trying something new is fun.
(Original recipe from Women's Day.)
1/2 small seedless watermelon (about 7 lb), rind removed
large seedless green grapes, removed from stems
1 pt blueberries
2 Tbsp sugar
Have ready sixteen 6 to 8-in. wooden skewers, and line a rimmed baking
sheet with plastic wrap.
Cut watermelon in chunks. Alternating fruits, thread on skewers. Arrange
on baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving.
Grate zest and squeeze juice from lime. Put zest, lime juice and sugar in
a small bowl, let stand 10 minutes, then stir until sugar dissolves.
Just before serving, drizzle or brush kabobs with lime syrup. Transfer to
*Tip: Mix and match your favorite fruits. Oh, and think about grilling them as an option, too. Just soak your skewers so they don't burn!
