185/366 summer fruit

I am so happy the summer fruit has finally arrived here. . . in-season ripeness and in-season prices! Last week was slim pickins, but today we brought home cantaloupe (39 cents a pound!), grapes ($1.59!), nectarines ($1.89, and ripe! And sweet!), plums, corn on the cob, and avocados. Yum.

We celebrated with rice-cake-face lunches. I supplied rice cakes with some sort of sticky medium (Sweetpea chose cream cheese, Mister chose peanut butter) and an array of fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, shredded cheese, raisins, etc. for decoration. The kids loved using white corn for teeth this time. :)
