Dearest Derek,

It’s been two years you have passed away…

They say “everything happens for a reason in life.”  I still struggle to understand what could be the reason you have left us so early.

We will never forget you.  You will always be in our hearts and our thoughts.

Rest in peace little angel.  We will love you forever.

My prayers and love go to all the people who have lost a child and especially to the family of Derek.

Fruit salad (my secret ingredient)

Post image for Fruit salad (my secret ingredient)

by Rita H. Azar on October 20, 2014

Bonjour!

Last week, I made this very nice fruit salad.  I posted a picture and I asked if anyone could guess what was my secret ingredient.  I had many answers ranging from love to vodka and maple syrup.  But, no one guessed what my special touch was so I decided today to reveal the mystery!

Ingredients:

- Fruit washed ant cut in small pieces (I put 1 banana, 1 apple, 1 pear, 1 orange and strawberries);

- 1 tea spoon of white sugar;

- And, the secret ingredient is…  1/4 cup of rose water.

*I find rose water at my local middle-eastern supermarket.

rose water

Preparation:

- Toss all the ingredients together and put the salad in the fridge for at least one hour before serving.  This will allow all the flavors to mix well together.  It’s actually even better the next day.

Fruit salad, the next day.

Enjoy and please come back and let me know if you give it a go.  Also, you can see more of my recipes here.    

Have you written a post on NaNoWriMo?  I would love to read it.  Link up your NaNo post with my linky party here.

Do you use rose water?  What is your secret ingredient for a fruit salad?

Au revoir!
