get fresh

 A few weeks ago, I made fresh fruit kabobs for my daughter to bring to a friends home to share.  They were a huge hit and the Mom told me that I inspired her to make some and even sent me a photo.
 I attended an event in the city a few weeks ago and they had the freshest crudites in fun containers.
Summertime always makes me want to add freshness to my menu and to my table.  Ever since 3rd grade, I have loved ric-rac and how it adds a zest.  What sort of "get fresh" ideas are on your weekend menu.  Hope I have inspired you to create a fun raw bar or add a bit of a fresh face to your table.

I have been doing fruit kabobs for years. I love the fact they are easy to eat one hand and they simply look pretty. The same with the containers. Don't you love to entertain? I do! :) xo
