Another use for a Melon Baller- prepare Apples for the not-so-little little ones

My son loves apples. He’s almost 3. The only problem that I run into is that he loves them so much, he doesn’t realize when he should stop. He wants to eat big apple pieces like his sister who eats a regular apple without problems(even while missing we two front teeth!).

If I served my daughter a whole apple and my son apple slices, he would become so upset.

Everyday I would cut and apple in half and with a knife try to dig out the core and the stems for my son to have the feeling of eating a whole apple and for me to relax that he wasn’t going to eat it core and all. Ugh! I cannot even tell you how many times I’ve almost cut myself or flung apple in my face while doing this!

Enter the the Melon Baller. I finally grabbed my Melon Baller. Now, I honestly don’t remember if I saw someone else doing this on a cooking show, off of Pinterest, Facebook, or out of my own thoughts. But….the bottom line is this is the COOLEST THING EVER!

Here’s how you do it:

1. Wash apple
2. Cut in half
3. Use Melon Baller to scoop out stems(too and bottom) and core
4. Enjoy!!!!

I love how I can send a half an apple in my daughter’s lunches too!

I cannot even tell you how many times my kids really want to eat (or have the feeling of eating) a whole apple…,but in reality only want half. I love doing this!

Enjoy Apple Season! Hopefully this trick will come in handy for you!

Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3

Hi! My name is Dominique and I'm lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home. I'm actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job. I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things...whether it's figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
