Tie-Dye & Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs

When my sister passed along a TON of plain white onsies, I knew instantly that they wouldn't stay white for long. Not because of stains from baby vomit or other bodily fluids... but from tie-dye!!! Therefore, Ross and I decided to throw a little tie-dye party to help us make them all. 

So I made some summer treats.

Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs 

1 pound organic strawberries 
1 large Angel Food Cake
1 bag marshmallows (we used vegan Dandies) 
Almond Bark or other melt-able chocolate 
Bamboo skewers 

Slice the green blossom off the strawberries and cut into bite size pieces if needed, the rinse thoroughly. 
Cut the angel food cake into bite size pieces. 
Assemble your kabobs - skewer the strawberries, cake and marshmallows in the pattern of your choice. 
Then melt the chocolate according to the directions on the package and drizzle on top of the kabobs. 
Let cool and enjoy! It's really that simple, and the result is delicious! 

Invited over some friends and family.

Some friends came all the way from Alaska - so happy to see Michelle from The Runner's Plate and her sister Kristy! 

And we dyed some onsies!!! It's really quite simple - pick up a pack of dye from your local craft store (like this one) and follow the directions. The great thing about it is that you really can't mess it up - just tie the shirts with the rubber bands and dye away! 

The results were beautiful! 

I can't wait to dress our little one in these!
