Watermelon-whale Fun

           When a little family gathering is coming, or a birthday party, or even just a BBQ that you want to make something a little different and twice as fun as normal, then here is something that my sister Angel, and I   did this past week for a lunch that my was going on at a business lunch-in. 

           My mom had this book about creative things to create and this just happened to be one of them. We thought it was cute and totally a summer food to enjoy while it has been hot. I am sure you could go online and look up ways to create the watermelon-whale and also many other ideas I am sure.

           We had to trace the outside of the whole watermelon with a pen and then went back over the line with the end of a fork to make the line visible enough to then cut out with melon into the whale shape with a knife. In this watermelon-whale we have taken a melon-baller and balled watermelon and cantaloupe, added blueberries and then put the grapes around the outside of the whale on the tray so they would not turn brown from being picked off the vine and cut in half.

       You can use any fruit you would like to use and I would even consider getting a recipe for making home-made whipping cream to add as a yummy topping to your watermelon-whale fruit salad. 

ENJOY!

Go Further Ford 2012


I recently had the pleasure of attending the Go Further Ford trend conference in the end of June and was more than surprised and pleased with the information I walked away learning and understanding. I have such an excitement about the things that Ford Motors are doing in their company to help make a more efficient, Eco-Friendly, and “green.”
Over the 3 day trend conference we heard from experts about Urbanization, Design, Technology, and Eco-Psychology. We heard from Bill Ford himself, the proud great grandson of Henry Ford, about why he has decided to take Ford Motor in the direction it is going in to be more sustainable in the long term of the company. We heard from actor Adrian Grenier, Co-founder of SHFT.com, fashion designer and winner of Project Runway, Christian Siriano, and Ari S. Goldberg CEO of StyleCaster + Co-Founder of Sociocast, along with many other expert panelists about the impact of choosing a sustainable vehicle, product, and brand.
Along with the expert panelists, the attendees of the trend conference were allowed to test drive some of the new Ford cars; the Ford Focus, Ford Expedition, and even the Ford Mustangs on the actual test track used by Ford Motor in Motor City, MI.
I am proud to call myself a Ford Motors supporter and fan. 85% of each and every vehicle is recyclable. That is more than any other automotive maker out there. Time to give the leader in technology, sustainability, and eco-awareness the recognition they deserve for all this hard work. Go Ford Motor!
