Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Tropical Rain Forest

Tropical Fruit with Coconut Ice Cream for a Tropical Rain Forest

Tropical Fruit with Coconut Ice Cream for a Tropical Rain Forest

I have never been to a Tropical Rain Forest, but if I did go, I would eat grilled fruit! Well, come to think of it, I like grilled fruit, and  I don’t have to be in a Tropical Rain Forest to enjoy it!

I hate trying to think of things to eat every week! It is a real chore, as it seems you eat the same things over and over! Well I experiment a lot now by using an APP called Yummly! I love it because you can tailor the recipes to your particular food likes or dislikes. There are over 1 million recipes to choose from with gorgeous pictures and instructions. When you find a recipe you like you can save it and automatically add the ingredients to a grocery list. The most important feature for me is allowing me to see the recipe, on my list, that I have bought the ingredients for. I used to look through all my cookbooks for particular recipes, make a list, and then get home from the grocery store and not be able to remember what ingredient was for which recipe! Sometimes I couldn’t remember which book I had found the recipe in! What a senior moment! Now, even if I do not get the ingredients on the list, the ingredients do not go away and I can save them for another week and never lose the recipe either! You can look for recipes by Ingredients, Occasions, Tastes, Diets, Allergies, Nutrition, or Cuisine, just to name a few filters. If you wear an Up band you can save the calories and information of the meal to your band! You will know how many calories you consumed with any meal!

You can add other things to the list, like toilet paper, soap, all your staples or anything else, all added to one list. I LOVE this APP!

Summer is coming so it is time to grill fruit! Since I have not done a video for awhile I thought I would share a  Grilled Watermelon Pizza recipe.

There are 25 recipes for this on Yummly! Enjoy!

Tropical Rain Forest is a green color in the Crayola Collection that was added in 1993.

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! It is Day 103!

Check out some of the other 150+ challenge participants, it’s amazing what we have done with the Crayola colors!

    That watermelon pizza looks interesting. Never thought of grilling watermelon but I definitely feel like those flavors would work out.
