Donut & Fruit Brunch Kabobs

I usually am overly ambitious when planning food for a group setting and figuring out how much food will be necessary. For example, when I made these Greek Lamb Kabobs for Mother's Day, I bought entirely too much meat but ran out of vegetables. A few weeks ago, I made a two pound meatloaf just for Brian and I, with the goal of thinking we'd have some leftovers (hey #mealprep). I quickly learned that two pounds is a ton. I mean, we had meatloaf for days. We hosted a fondue party last New Year's and doubled almost all of the ingredients.

I suppose it's better to have more food than to run out (gasp!), but I also assumed I'd get better at eyeballing portion sizes by now.

Recently, I helped host a bridal shower brunch for one of my best friends. Brunches can be tricky to plan for; everyone has different levels of hunger in the mornings and you don't want to have too much or too little food. As for me, I'm usually starving right when I wake up, but that's another story.

I wanted to incorporate fruit into the menu but wasn't sure a large standard fruit bowl would be the best option, so I made these Donut & Fruit Brunch Kabobs, complete with layers of adorable little Entenmann's Glazed Donut Holes, strawberries, and blackberries.

Healthy fruit nestled around sweet and tasty donut holes makes for easy entertaining!

PS - more on donuts here. I love them.
