OK now THATS cool! Where do you come up with this stuff?

Question: when you say stand the melon up, you mean like a bowl right? I'm just trying to picture it. How do you serve this? Scoop the stuff out and then cut up the melon to add to everything?

yes I stand it up like a bowl, remove a little of the melon and dice it and mix it with babana,and the other diced up fruit.it's really great when it gets nice and cold.I just like to play with my food and that is what I did with this one.
