On a Sunday Afternoon...

Omar turned the big one month yesterday and he was cranky as ever last night...
We think he gets that way when we take him out in the day.  Chris & I have always been busy bees so we figured that we'd take him out every couple of days to get him used to our routine but he's not having it.  I had to finish my last paper of the Spring Semester (Hallelujah!) by midnight tonight so Chris took Duke out for the day so I could concentrate on "organizational structures" and to give our little baby some quiet time.  It worked like a charm, Omar slept the whole day and I was able to get so much done!  

Chris did some grocery shopping and brought home tons of fruit so I made Mexican Fruit Salad aka Street Fruit Salad - You know, chunks of fresh pineapple, cantaloupe, cucumber and watermelon with fresh squeezed lime juice, chili powder and chamoy.  Mmm!  It also tastes really good with mango, strawberries and jicama.  Super refreshing and perfect for hot Summer days!

There is also a cream version of Mexican Fruit Salad called "Bionicos".            
Sunday Fruit! Chamoy!Tajin!
Sometimes it's good with just lime juice & chili powder...Fruit!
And sometimes it's better with chamoy!  Let it marinate in chamoy for an hour or more... That really sets it off!
