Orange Bear and Happy Father's Day!

My dad and I weren’t very close when I was a kid. He was a quiet and calm man and I was his first daughter. There was an adjusting line between us. We talked about serious stuff that needed a decision. Years later time had gone by and we somehow learned how to “talk” to each other in his and my love language. The silence turned to comfort that we both knew nothing wrong with that. His silence and mine were tuned. It’s clear and loved with comfort since then.

Yeah, that’s my relationship with my dad.

I hope you all have a wonderful Father’s day with your beloved ones. All the dads out there, you’re doing a wonderful job! Happy Father’s Day!

This orange bear is adorable dessert, centerpiece, or even a great table d├ęcor. I got the idea from a Japanese/Korean restaurant called Kobe wellbeing in WA. They served this cute orange after meal. After investigating how they did with it, I could do this too!  It’s actually pretty easy and will impress your guests for sure.

I also think it’s an easy way to eat the oranges too especially when someone cut it for you hahaha. It’s no recipe!

I hope photos help for better directions.
  •  Look at the bottom of the orange or the smaller dot because it will be a nose of a bear.
  •  You cut top and bottom of the orange about a quarter off. Cut the top 45 degree angle
  • Use a small knife to craft out orange meat from the peel. Cut the meat into small bite. 
  • Insert the cut piece into crafted hole orange for the base of orange meat.
  • Put the cut orange meat back in.
  • The top part where the nose will be. Use a small knife cut out part of the peel to make ears.
  •   Make a pouch to insert the cut piece back in for ears.
  • Insert a toothpick to make it stay up like the picture.
  •  Use a marker to draw eyes and mouth.

Oh my gosh, your orange bear is too cute!!! (And beautifully photographed, as always :) ) I'm definitely going to have to try this. I don't know if I'd be able to eat the orange pieces out of such an adorable bear after making it!

My dad and I also have a quiet, understanding relationship. I've never met anyone more reserved than he is, but I love how genuine he is, and how happy he is when he sees me and my sisters! Can't wait to see what he'll be like with grandkids :)

Have a wonderful week, Tanantha!
