K-Bob the Turkey

Now, I know Thanksgiving is still 3 weeks away, but we might as well be looking ahead to the BIG MEAL and how we can infuse creativity into it! Here's a fun idea for you to consider...

Last year, my Quirky Girl and I made the coolest fruit “tray” to take to our huge family Thanksgiving celebration!

Yes, we made a fruit, cheese, and pepperoni turkey!

  • Body = squash/gourd with long neck
  • Head = pear
  • Eyes = green grapes and raisins
  • Nose/Beak = red grape
  • Waddle = orange pepper slice
  • Head thingie = peperoni slices
  • Feathers = kabobs alternating red and green grapes, cheese cubes, and pepperoni slices
  • Feet = red pepper slices cut like claws
  • Displayed on a Thanksgiving-themed platter and garnished with generous bunches of red and green grapes.

Before I go, here’s a step-by-step tutorial to make a K-Bob of your own!

That is so funny!
My kids would love to do this one!
I still need to find out if I have Thanksgiving at my house this year...
We tend to be a last-minute family.
But this would be fun to do!

Looks like fun. I would have a hard time eating it after all that work.
