Thanksgiving Turkey Fruit Salad

Thanksgiving Turkey Fruit Salad

I think one of the reasons I don’t enjoy cooking is because it isn’t the right outlet for my creativity.  I don’t like the idea of planning and prepping and cooking only to have the creation eaten and gone.  It doesn’t do anything for me.

When I was asked to bring the fruit salad to Thanksgiving a few years ago, I broke out in hives. Not only do I not cook, I also don’t cut fruit.  What a waste of time!  (Maybe another reason I don’t enjoy cooking and cutting fruit is because of my inability to stand for more than 30 seconds without feeling like I’m going to pass out.)

I did a few searches on Pinterest and came up with a Thanksgiving turkey fruit salad.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 whole watermelon, cut in half (remove inside and cut into chunks for the skewers)
  • 1 pear for the nose/waddle
  • 2 googly eyes and a brown piece of paper cut into a triangle for the nose
  • various fruit cut into chunks
  • skewers

What to do:

Just put the chunks onto the skewers and stick the skewers into the watermelon as pictured above.

It’s a way to cook and be creative at the same time!
