In an effort to encourage my family to eat more fruits, I sometimes resort to making them a big fruit platter, like this one below.
I was hoping that it would entice them to snack off that fruit platter, instead of reaching into the cookie jar. It seems like a good idea, doesn’t it? I myself can easily polish off half of that platter. How can you resist a platter of fresh fruits?! But unfortunately, my plan does not always work.
Maybe if I had hidden other snacks in the house, or hollowed out that halved melon in the middle and fill it with some kind of a dipping sauce, it would have been more successful. Oh, well… there’s always next time. Right now though, I need to figure out what to do with the remaining half of that platter. Yup, I did end up eating the other half.
Now It’s Features Time!

“Ruh-roh, I’m in trouble now! I can’t get this out of my mind; it’s mac ‘n’ cheese on steroids, with smoked gouda and parmesan, aaand… Duke’s mayo!” — Angie
“I love Greek food and this is a lighter and fresher version of nachos, always a favorite.” — Liz
“This looks so fresh and green and full of flavor, not like the olive drab saag paneer I am used to in most restaurants.” — Liz
