What did you want to be while you were growing up? I always thought I was going to be someone famous. Someone who lived off of room service and had a car for every day of the week. Singing was my thing and I practically sang my way through high school. Summer vocal camps, church choir, school choir….I was in like Flynn.
Then my singing dreams were crushed when I entered my college talent show…and lost.
My poor heart couldn’t take another slap of rejection so I hung my vocal dreams up to dry and focused on being a ‘normal’ person again. I finished college and became hitched to a military man. Now…it’s just me, my hubby, my two kids, my dog…and this little blog 🙂
I still sing…and it’s mostly when I’m making recipes for this blog. I crank up the radio and cook, cook, cook. My talent has been passed down to my daughter. Every time I hear her sing songs that she’s been exposed to it makes my heart swell with joy.
Life is funny like that….isn’t it? Guess you can say in this family…we really do sing for our supper.
This fruit recipe is perfect for the summer and will have your taste buds singing a sweet song!

You are welcome 😉
Perfect for summer!
Oh, I cannot wait strawberries will mature over here. Have to try this, it sounds so delicious. Can I use peaces or nectarine instead of mango (if it is not available?
Sure! I don't see why you wouldn't be able to use peaches or nectarines. The original recipe called for pineapple but I'm not a big fan of it so I replaced it with mango. I think any kind of fruit would be good in this 😉
Yum, I love fruit salads!
