Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Pita Chips

Let me say this outright.

I cannot take any credit for this fruit salsa, other than taking the photos.  My sister made it this past weekend and she made sure to tell me more than once that she needs the credit.

My sister made this.

My sister made this.

Does everyone know who made this?

This salsa gets better the longer it sits, the fruit softens and really it tastes like a fruit pie when you take a bit with a cinnamon pita chip.  You can make your own cinnamon pita chips or you can take the easy route and buy them {we used Stacy's}.

If there was any of this left, it would also be good on ice cream or over pound cake.  Or you can be my brother and avoid this dip all day like it were the plague.....he hates fruit.  I know, we don't understand either.

Fruit Salsa
1 lb. strawberries
2 apples
2 kiwis
1/2 lb. raspberries
2 T. sugar
1 T. brown sugar
2 T. fruit preserves or jam

Cut/chop all fruit {except berries} into small chunks and place into a large bowl.  Combine sugars and jam and toss with the fruit.  Serve with cinnamon pita chips.

This weekend we also {finally} got my children's hand prints into their little cement slab in my parent's backyard.  All of the other grandchildren have theirs, but since my kids are the youngest we just hadn't gotten around to it yet.  My parents have a beautiful backyard, so their two stones seem to complete it!

They both had fun putting their hand print in the wet cement, spelling their name and embellishing each of their stones with a little flare {buttons, rocks, pennies, etc.}

Something they will remember forever!
