Watermelon Treats / #SundaySupper

I am always happy and sad to see Labor Day come around. I don't like that it means the end of summer, but I love that fall will soon be in the air! Labor Day gives us the chance to celebrate both summer and fall along with the reason for the day~to celebrate working men and women! We are sharing Labor Day Menu Ideas today for SundaySupper, and I am excited about these simple and fun Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats!
Watermelon Treats 
(printable recipe at end of page) 
(makes 12 treats)
3 tablespoons Butter 
10 ounces Marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
Candy Corn Cookie Cutter
Frosting Colors in Pinkish Red, Green, and White
3 #2 decorating tips, 3 decorating bags
Mini Chocolate Chips
Sticks for the treats


Most cooks know how to make rice cereal treats, but just in case it has been a while, here's what to do: Melt the butter in a large saucepan, over low heat. Add the marshmallows to the butter and stir until they are completely melted. Remove the pan from heat. Add the cereal, and mix together until covered completely.
 Place the mix into a buttered or sprayed half sheet pan, or any pan that has sides the same height as the sheet pan. Cover with plastic until cooled. The rice krispie treats should be even across the top with the top of the pan. 
Cut out the watermelon slices. Using the space sparingly, you should get 12-13 watermelon slices from the rice krispie.
Mix the pinkish red color together. Use your favorite recipe, or use my favorite. I have used this recipe for years, and I think you will like it! Use a decorating bag and a #2 tip to outline the watermelon slice and then fill it in. Drop approx. 6 mini chocolate chips onto the top 3/4's of the treat. Insert stick into the bottom of the watermelon wedge. Let dry.
Use the green frosting color, and a decorating bag with a #2 tip to form the rind of the watermelon.
Fill in the area. Let dry.
Use the white frosting to draw a straight line to resemble the white part of the rind.
Insert sticks carefully. Inserting the sticks could make the frosting crack, so moving slowly works best.
Thanks so much for joining me today!

Snack Time Fruit on a Stick /#15 Minute Friday

Sometimes it only takes a few extra minutes to make something look special, and in return make it enticing and irresistible! That was my goal today for this #15 Minute Friday post. How to make simple grapes and bananas look special enough that children will pick the fruit over a cookie or candy. I think this Snack Time Fruit on a Stick just might work!
Snack Time Fruit on a Stick
(printable recipe at end of post)

Red Grapes
Green Grapes
Bananas
Palm Tree Drink Stirrers
Strawberry Yogurt
1 Dollop of Whipped Cream 

This is all you need for each skewer. Decide what design you want to use to thread on the fruit. make them all the same, or change it around. I cut the bananas a bit wide. If they are too thin, they will fall off the skewer. 
I think the skewers add a fun element to this very simple snack.
Mix the whipped cream and the yogurt. The fruit tastes great dipped in this.
That's all there is to it. The stirrers can be found at the dollar store. They come 10 to a package.
Thanks for joining me for another 15 Minute Friday!

Southwest Chipotle Pulled Pork Naan Bread Pizza / #SundaySupper / #Nourish2Flourish

Southwest Chipotle Pulled Pork Naan Bread Pizza is one long recipe title, but it is one of the quickest, freshest meals you will ever put together! What's the secret?  You start with the Southwest Chipotle Nourish Bowl, which comes stuffed full of healthy, fresh veggies like cauliflower, kale, kohlrabi, and sweet potatoes. It also includes a Chipotle Corn Salsa and shredded Cheddar Cheese! Add some pizza sauce to the corn salsa, spread it on a piece of Naan bread, add the fresh veggies from the Nourish Bowl, top it with pulled pork, add cheese and dinner is ready! Three pizzas from one Nourish Bowl! Wow!
I think it is pretty much a given that life today is hectic and to find something to eat that is tasty, quick and healthy is a struggle. You will find that the Nourish Bowls are each a healthy meal in themselves with no need to add anything if you don't want. They are deliciously, wonderfully, perfect for any meal of the day, whether it is breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack.  It would be great to take a Nourish Bowl for lunch at work, knowing that it will be ready to enjoy in 3-4 minutes, giving you extra time for you! Visit Mann's Nourish Bowls website to see the large variety of bowls that are available. You will want to try all of them!

Southwest Chipotle Pulled Pork Naan Bread Pizza
(printable recipe at end of post)
(Makes 3 pizzas)

1/4 - 1/2 pound Shredded Pork
Southwest Chipotle Nourish Bowl
3-4 pieces Naan Bread
4 tablespoons Pizza Sauce 
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Sprinkle a pork loin with garlic powder and cook it in the oven at 350 degrees until it reaches 140 degrees. Take it out of the oven and let it sit until it reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees. When it is done, shred some pork for your pizzas. You will only need about 1/4 to 1/2 pound of the loin for the pizzas.
Open Nourish Bowl. Remove packet of Chipotle Corn Salsa and Cheddar Cheese. Add 4 tbl. of water to bowl. Microwave 3-4 min

While the veggies are cooking, pour the salsa packet and the pizza sauce in to a bowl and mix together. 

Divide the salsa/pizza mix between the three naan bread. Spread mix onto the bread, as close to edge as you can. Add additional sauce directly to the bread, if needed.
Remove the veggies from the microwave and add them to the top of the sauce on each pizza.  
Add the pulled pork on top of each pizza.
Sprinkle mozzarella and some of the cheddar on to each pizza.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
 Remove from oven, slice and enjoy!

Mini Cranberry Orange Bundt Muffins

These little Mini Cranberry Orange Bundt Muffins are a great way to start your day. Of course, they are just as tasty as a dessert also.  I used the Orange flavored Cranberries from Trader Joes to make these cuties. The orange mixed with the cranberry flavor gives these muffins a great taste with a little less tartness. I dressed up three of the muffins for dessert by adding an orange juice drizzle, fresh whipped cream and some orange zest. I left the others for breakfast and snacks!

Chocolate Cherry Banana Bread

Every couple months I try to send a little care package to my former neighbor in Utah. He loves getting small loaves of bread that he can eat a little bit at a time, so I included this Chocolate Cherry Banana Bread! He is the best neighbor we have ever had, and the sweetest man I have ever met, and my family misses him dearly. He is making plans to visit us here in North Carolina, and we are eagerly anticipating his visit. In the meantime I want to make sure he has his full allotment of treats, and I think this Chocolate Cherry Banana Bread will satisfy that craving!
