Healthy Happy Birthday

This is the second fresh fruit “cake” I’ve made. There were no big watermelons available, so I went with a mini-watermelon. Decorated with muskmelon balls, blackberries and grapes.  It’s a little lumpy, but it pleased Antipasta, whose birthday we celebrated at the writing group meeting.

I also made Herbed Polenta bites using the recipe from Jill Nussinow’s The New Fast Food. Polenta is on my menu a LOT now that I can make it in the pressure cooker.

I seriously recommend the Instant Pot pressure cooker if you want to get more fresh whole grains and beans in your life. It’s great for potatoes, soups, etc. etc.!
