It’s the week before the “Big Game!” Are you drooling over the thought of the food more than the game itself? Me too!!! (Okay I totally get that I may be in the minority. I like football… alright. It’s just that I like food WAY better.)
This year the Broncos have made it to the final game, and I’m here in Colorado watching this absolute fervor unfold. Every day it gets stronger… Pretty soon I think we will see people dancing on their rooftops shirtless in the sub-freezing weather. I’m just sayin’.
The important thing is that I have a huge buffet of tasty appetizers ready for my family. And the one to start it off, as always, is the fruit platter. Fruit is the kids’ favorite healthy snack and it adds so much beauty to an appetizer layout; it’s a must. So today I am going to share the best presentation ever with you! This is courtesy of my momma-in-law, who taught me how to make a “fruit bowl” eye-popping.
Buy your fruit. You will need a fresh pineapple, but the rest is up to you. The idea is that everyone will pick the fruit chunks off with toothpicks so buy things that you can easily chunk or make toothpick-friendly.
How to create the presentation:
As the “token vegan” (as my husband was just recently called) in our circle of friends, we always endeavor to bring fruits and veggies to parties and get-togethers. We know there will always be a shortage of such things and also that people expect them and enjoy them, so they aren’t just for us. I will leave you with a picture of a pretty veggie tray that I brought to a party recently. I found radishes and all kinds of goodies for it. But usually I just stick to the usual suspects: broccoli, carrots, and cherry tomatoes.
