Okay, I just love fruit! My favorites are bananas, oranges, grapes, pineapple, apples, strawberries, blueberries, rasberries, and watermelon. They just taste so yummy! speaking of fruit, last night I was watching the Food Network Challenge where the contestants have to carve fruit into a big sculpture. Hawaii was the theme, and you should have seen the finished pices! the level of detail and artwork on some of the carvings on fruit was simply amazing! I think it would be fun to carve my fruit into a beautiful piece, but then I'd probably eat it afterwards. Anyways, one guy used pinapples and watermelon to make a totem pole. The carvings were so detailed, too. I have just never seen this before, except when my mom wouls make a watermelon fruit basket, and then fill it with fruit. Have you ever done any fruit carvings? Fruits like watermelon and pineapple would be best because the fruit inside is hard enough to manipulate as you wish. One lady made a rose in the face of her watermelon. It was so cool!
