I’m a Baller…a Melon Baller

If you have been reading the blog for a while you know that I am a big fan of unnecessary kitchen gadgets. They make me happy in crazy ways! Some of my favorite ones include : my beloved banana slicer, the fabulous cherry pitter and my lovely peanut butter mixer

Let me introduce you to my new kitchen BFF– The Melon Baller

My mom has been using a melon baller ever since I can remember. She used it to cut up watermelons, regular melons, cantaloupe and anything else you can imagine.

This little gadget is two sided, one side makes smaller balls and the opposite side makes some larger balls depending on your ball needs.

My mom sent fiancé and I home with half of a rather large watermelon from this past weekend down in Bethany Beach, Delaware. I love bringing home fruit from the beach!

To use the melon baller you simply insert the device into your melon of choice like so.

Scoop out the fruit with a little twist of your wrist.

And embrace the pretty ball of melon!

Seriously how cute is this? I love it!

I made a whole bowlful of watermelon balls for fiancé and I to nibble on! These are the last few weeks to enjoy summer fruit before the Fall is officially here!

I love my new melon baller!

Doesn’t this bowl of fruit look so much more fun to eat now?

Balling fruit is a fun way to make a fun appetizer for a party, or maybe it would be something kids would enjoy to eat too!

The bigger side of the melon baller sized the watermelon a little bit bigger than a large grape.

Sure you don’t NEED this little appliance, but it makes fruit fun!

Would you use a melon baller? What’s your favorite unnecessary kitchen appliance?

Support And Her Little Dog Too

I am so thankful for everyone’s support on my little blog through the past almost 2 years. I am so very grateful for everyone who stops by my little realm of cyber space to check out what I have been up to, whether it be to see how my training has been going, to see what I have been eating, or just to check out the latest pictures of Jackson! I appreciate it all!

I know I have recently asked for my readers support when I requested for you to Vote for Couple #5 in the Flaunt Your Rock competition. Thanks to all of you being totally awesome, we clearly won! The prize was an amazing Engagement session photo shoot with the wonderfully talented April Ziegler. I heart her and I heart our engagement pictures.

This time I am asking once again for your support. I know I have mentioned a few times that I am up for the Best Local Blogger in Philadelphia by MyPHL. Voting for the contest ends today and I would really appreciate your vote! You can vote here.

I honestly can’t think of a better way to spend some time on a lovely Friday than by using your mouse to click a few clicks on the internet to support a blogger friend, but that’s just me! :)

Last I checked I was in second place! Any vote is well appreciated! Thanks so much again for reading my little blog! I’ll be back again this afternoon with some more fun with food!
