Pina Colada Fruit Salad
So I mentioned we were moving and then disappeared for a month. Totally not my intention but if thereâ€™s one thing Iâ€™ve learned with the Army, itâ€™s to never expect anything to happen when they say it will happen. Anyway, weâ€™re finally settled, finally have internet set up, and finally replaced the laptop cord that a certain rodent made a midnight snack.
We moved from a very hot, wet area on the Gulf of Mexico to the dry, itâ€™s-101-degrees-outside-but-feels-like-80 Colorado. Seriously, weâ€™ve been here a month and Iâ€™ve yet to break a sweat. Itâ€™s the weirdest thing ever. However, the sun is ridiculous. Itâ€™s, like, right there. You walk outside for 5 minutes and your skin smells like you just spent 20 minutes in a tanning bed. You pretty much have to wake up with a bottle of water in your hand and then fall asleep with one in your hand or else youâ€™re dehydrated beyond belief. Iâ€™m hoping itâ€™s just something we have to adjust to but in an effort to hydrate in more exciting ways, I made this fruit salad.
It turned out fantastic and everyone in my house loved it! I think next time I make it, Iâ€™ll throw in some banana slices, shredded coconut, and maybe some mandarin oranges. It was delicious as is but if you can get away with more fruit, why not!
