LaPiS: Shades of Spring and Summer

A hearty beach picnic…long, tall and refreshing drinks…plump, juicy fruits…freshly-picked vegetables…

These are the usual images that come to my mind whenever I think “spring and summer foodie thoughts” ๐Ÿ™‚

And I think these photos will give you an inkling of what I mean… ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s a bit ironic though that I actually took a photo of these veggies during winter – hahaha! :mrgreen:

I would’ve preferred taking a photo of the salad sans the fresh orange juice so that the cut-up fruits (in this case, I used gala apples, bananas, mandarin orange wedges and strawberries)ย would be more visible… ๐Ÿ˜ย  Was supposed to do a “re-take” of this but couldn’t – since strawberries were unfortunately not available during my last trip to the grocery (*sigh*).ย  Anyway, I found that this is one delicious way of making the kids eat fruits – and a variety of it, to boot! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Incidentally, bet you’d never guess where I got this recipe? While watchingย a presenter introduce the next show in ย BBC’s Cee-Beebies – hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜†

Pardon the delayed post since I’ve been having some troubleย uploading pics to this site lately… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

A belated happy LaPiS to all! ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. uy, that’s very healthy ha! i haven’t ever tried putting together a fresh fruit salad. kasi we always end up snacking on the fruits. hee hee. ๐Ÿ˜€

    That means you don’t even have to make the salad – since you guys obviously enjoy your fruits as is! Lucky you! ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. beautiful photo of veggies! And yes, to get a variety of fruits into kids, making it into a salad is always a hit ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks, JMom! :mrgreen:


  3. I love taking pictures of produce in my Asian grocery. The people who work there don’t mind.:)

    I’m sure they won’t, Oggi… wouldn’t risk losing one of their “sukis” after all, right? Hehehe ๐Ÿ˜‰


  4. Go Cbeebies! Fresh fruit Salad! Yummy!!!

    Thanks, Twinx! Unfortunately though, the morning programming schedule at the BBC channel in our cable seems to have changed so I’m now at a loss as to when CBeebies is – waaahhh!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Tama bang ako pa ang mas affected kesa kay Marga? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hehehe


  5. Wonderful shot of spring & summer veggies!

    Thanks, Iska!


  6. oh, those veggies are lovely.. seeing veggies that fresh makes me itch to cook! lol! and that fruit salad is very good, and healthy indeed for the kids especially…

    Go on and “scratch” that itch, Jescel… am sure your fam will live you more for it – hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜†

    which reminds me, M made some fresh fruit salad! tinatago ata sakn e haha! makuha nga:) and i love that first photo! they really look so fresh!

    Ba’t naman itinago e healthy naman yon supposedly di ba? โ“ Baka nagpapa-cute si M para pansinin mo… yihee! :mrgreen:


  8. Wow, sarap niyan, very refreshing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks, Julie! Family fave na namin itong salad na ito admittedly… and I don’t mind a bit since it’s certainly the healthier alternative to the rich, cream-based fruit salad we Pinoys are used to. ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. hihi…I bet the winter fruits are from brazil and the south americas! But the veggies, locally grown ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love the colors…

    Para din palang KSA sa Austria – mahilig nag-import! Hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜† Thanks, G!
