And they ate them up!

Good morning.
After a few 80 some degree days, we are going back to normal temps of only low 70's.   :-)
Yesterday we bought a bougainvillea for the back yard.  I'll get a pic once I get it situated with a trellis. They are hardy to 20, so even though we can get lower than that, it will usually die back and regrow from the base. I've seen a few in the community and they look rally nice so I thought I'd give it a try.
Thursday, we went to a birthday party. I decided to take fruit kabobs with a special added ingredient.
I made them with cantaloupe, strawberries and kiwi. And added, that's right, the item in the top left corner are Twinkies! Cut each of the Twinkies into 4 pieces and placed them between other fruit.
Most people who took them didn't realize what they were until they ate them. And eat them they did! Every single one got eaten. They were a surprise hit! Mostly healthy with a little bit of decadence.
Craig and I first had these at a camping pot luck back when we had our mo-ho. I was very impressed then and wanted to try them in another setting. Happy everyone liked them.   :-)
It was a nice party, not too big, and we even got to meet some new neighbors. Everyone seems really nice.
Went to the ARC meeting Friday morning, and as expected, my surveillance cameras were approved.  I'll call Monday and get the ball rolling on installation.
And that's it for now.

  1. At first I thought they were pineapple. Don't know why.
    We do kabobs every so often in the summer. Very easy.
