After some counting...some of you all made it tricky for me by not putting separate comments for all of your entries...my Little Man Tie giveaway came to 40 entries! Woohoo!

Oh yeah, we are still drum rolling...

Our helpers at Random.org determined our lucky winner to be...

#18 Melissa who said, "I like the orange one, he would wear it to church"

MELISSA, send me an email so we can work out the details. I will give you until Sunday to contact me before picking someone else.


I just want to say a big THANK YOU for all the excitement and support of my first little giveaway. Thank you to my already followers, thank you to my new followers, and thank you to those who are frequent visitors. You make my heart so dang happy!

I heart you all!

                            


Keep coming back and checking for some more fun projects and more giveaways...

PS...I would love some feed back about the possibility of seeing these ties in an etsy shop by yours truly...jury is still out if I have the sanity...um I mean...time for one of those.

OKAY on to the FOOD

You would think by the title that my recipe today is Chicken...sorry I am actually serving up some of this...



Did you just drool a little?

This little dream concoction is what we here call Kate's Fruit Soup. It is just about the most delightful thing you will have in a bowl, well besides maybe a heaping bowl of ice cream...but you will feel better about this, AND you can serve it at a dinner/brunch without odd looks from your hubby.

It is super easy to make and is a crowd pleaser!

Kate's Fruit Soup

1 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
5 tablespoons minute tapioca
9 oz frozen orange juice concentrate
3 cups water
1  10 oz bag frozen berries (in the above I used blackberries, blueberries are awesome also)
2-3 cups sliced strawberries
4 large oranges, sectioned*
3 bananas, sliced

Combine 1 1/2 cups water, sugar, and tapioca in sauce pan. Bring to boil over med high heat. Stir constantly until mixture is clear and gelatinous, about 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, or a large pretty pitcher, mix 9 oz of concentrate, warm tapioca, and 3 cups water. Stir until well combined. Add berries and oranges. Can be made up until this point and stored in the fridge until time to serve. Add sliced bananas right before serving. 

Serve chilled. Also, make sure you stir well, sometimes the tapioca settles at the bottom.

ENJOY!

*How to Section an Orange: I did not know exactly how to do this the first time I made this...lucky for me I have a "How to Cook Everything" book that helped a sister out...if you don't know how here is a tutorial I found that can show you how.

I would love to see these ties in an Etsy shop! I would buy one for sure!
I just love the fabric you used, it's so different from the usual ties out there.

Larissa,
I would love to see these on etsy also! But I am wondering if you would make me a few and I will pay you for them. Let me know how much you would charge and all that and if you would even be willing to make me some. I just think they would be so cute on my little twins and Caden. Let me know.
Thanks!
Stacey
