Fruit Gobbler

When I saw this, I knew it was a must have at this week's festivities. This comes to us from

What You Need
Melon (body)
Pear (head)
Raisins (eyes)
Red Bell Pepper (side feathers, feet, snood)
Cheese (beak and tail feathers)
Grapes (tail feathers)
Bamboo Skewers

Make It
1. Stabilize the melon body by cutting a shallow slice off the rind to form a flat base. Using a section of bamboo skewer, attach a pear head to the melon, as shown.
2. Cut a cheese triangle beak and red pepper snood. Attach both, along with raisin eyes, to the head with sections of toothpick.
3. Cut red pepper feet and set them in place. For tail feathers, skewer cheese cubes and red grapes, then insert the skewers as shown. Pin pepper side feathers in place with toothpicks.

These cute pictures reminded me of an idea I saw in a magazine for a Rudolph sandwhich.

You take a piece of toasted brown bread and cute it diagonally into a triangle. Then, spread on peanut butter. At the narrow point of the triangle, place a maraschino (sp?) cherry. Then at the other points, put two pretzels. Add some raisins for eyes and you've got a Rudolph sandwich. Gabi loves that sort of stuff...

That Rudolph sandwich sounds so adorable and easy too! :)
