Stained Glass Fruit Salad




Last weekend our close friends Kevin and Jennifer came for an 
overnight visit.  Their daughter Kenzie was in a dance competition 
here in town.  (They won 2nd place by the way!)  

Our families have a long friendship that started a couple of months 
after our daughter came home from Korea.  Both our families attended 
our adoption agencies Fall Festival that October 2000 and while Bay 
had come home in August, Kenzie hadn't come home yet.  Jennifer's 
mom Gayle approached us and told us that Bay looked a lot like their 
daughter still in Korea.  She wanted us to go over and meet them.  
Well......we have been close friends ever since.  






Here's an old  pic of Jennifer, Kenzie and Bay and me........


and our girls now.............


Anyway............on Sunday morning Jimmy and I made them our 
Garlicky Parmesan Egg and Steak Biscuits and this fruit salad to 
go with it.  It was a big hit!  The nicest thing is that it's so easy to 
prepare and stays fresh for a couple of days.  The secret ingredient
is peach pie filling.  The pie filling coats all the other fruits and 
makes a sauce that's just sweet enough but not too sweet,  Easy 
peasy!
