Meteor Showers = stars = star fruit drink

Tonight and Tomorrow there will be the Perseid Meteor Shower. Essentially, 100+ meteors per hours will light our skies. If you can find a dark location free from the busy city lights you can enjoy this spectacular phenomena with a bevvie and good company.

I hope to take my hubby and perhaps even the kiddo up to a local park where there is no hustle and bustle of lights and people.

"Can we pretend that airplanes, in the night sky are like shooting stars, I could really use a wish right now, wish right now..."

Now you can wish on REAL "shooting stars"

You can read more about the showers here but what I want to talk about is what I enjoy most...


Speaking of stars, Star fruit is the cutest way to garnish any drink. Slice is in it's star shape and place on the rim of a glass or even floating in the drink so when you take a sip you see the star shaped fruit.

Here is what you need to know:
Best to buy
Star fruit, or carambola, is available all year long.

Cut & clean
Star fruit does not need to be peeled. Simply rinse under cool water and slice.

The star of your next salad
When sliced, star fruit’s unique shape adds beauty, style, and a sweet, tangy flavor to cocktails, and fruit or vegetable salads. They make a great, edible garnish as well.

Power food
Star fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C.
