I don’t know why, but I am a fan of eating things off sticks.
It started with a very passionate love affair with chicken satay skewers from a backyard BBQ when I was 11.
Now, I’ll eat practically anything, if you skewer it.
So tonight, after a delish dinner of seared rib eye in a delectable red wine sauce and roasted vegies, I was feeling a bit stuffed, but couldn’t face the prospect of going to bed without dessert.
I decided something simple, light and fresh was in order and was going to whip a simple fruit salad (being such a gourmand that I am, insert eyeroll here).
But then an idea struck me- put it on a stick and call it a dessert! So out came my trusty bamboo skewers…and the mess began.
I would count the number of times I stabbed myself with the bamboo skewers if my fingers weren’t bloody stubs dangling off my palms, but I choose to live dangerously. What can I say.
I made enough for my husband and me.
Fruits I used were:
- Fresh apricots
As for the Honey Berry yoghurt, I used a tub of berry flavoured yoghurt, mixed with a teaspoon of honey. Complicated, huh?
As much as I adore complicated, delicate, delish desserts, let’s face it, how many of us are going to be whipping up culinary delights for desserts after a day of screaming kids, screaming bosses and honking horns? Not me.
But put it on a stick and suddenly it’s not just fruit on a plate before bed, it’s “Fruit kebabs with honey berry yoghurt”.
