Christmas Hedgehog.

There are so many parties and Christmas do's on at this time of year, but in this hot weather it is very difficult to do something that will keep, be tasty and festive. So when I was asked to the local betting clubs Christmas do and they said "Bring a plate" This was my answer.
I got hold of a seedless watermelon this morning that weighed six kilos. The man in the fruit and veg shop, kindly cut it in half for me.
I washed the outer skin and then lightly rubbed some olive oil on the skin, and sprinkled it with gold edible sprinkles. Like a gold dust really.
One kilo of Cabanosi sliced.
One kilo of Cheddar cheese, cut in to cubes.
One fresh Pineapple, peeled cored and sliced.
Two jars of red Cocktail Onions.
Two jars of green Cocktail Onions.
Two hundred cocktail sticks.
Load three different things on to the stick, making sure you have the red and green onions at the top, or the pineapple and proceed to load up the watermelon.
This was a lot of fun to make, and everybody at the party enjoyed eating it too.
If anybody knows it's true name, I would be very grateful to hear from you. Until then, I shall call it my Christmas Hedgehog. Such a cute and lovable little animal. (We don't have them in Australia, arhhhhhhh!)
