Today I took a quick look see at my calendar and whaaaat  is that – July 1 is next Friday. Really? You have got to be kidding. How did that happen? The Summer is swimming along so quickly and before you know it July 4 will be upon us which brings me to today’s post. (You knew I was going somewhere with this didn’t you). I do love putting together a summer soiree’ and for my money there is nothing better to quell the summer taste buds than a perfect platter filled with an assortment of fruit. Yep-that’s my number one go to when you are looking to start a party or have a low cal finish to your meal. Now we wouldn’t think to just cut up a cantaloupe and plop it down on the table NOPE not going to happen. Instead we want a mélange of colorful fruit displayed oh so pretty. I’ thought a few ideas just might inspire you (and me) to cut, dice and slice some fruit into one perfectly put together platter. Enjoy!

The smores post from Monday was a huge hit-so many clicks on the web which just confirms my notion that people LOVE smores. Bearing in mind that everyone loves a summer treat that is yummy and easy to serve I thought best to highlight one more suggestion for your upcoming July 4th soiree just in case “someone” doesn’t want chocolate?! It’s sooo easy to prepare, looks cute as can be and handles well! Watermelon on a stick.    I knew you would love it!

O.K. so I already posted a super duper healthy drink recipe  today but since we are on the subject of fruit isn’t it nice to know that there are so many ways to present this summer favorite. The options are endless.

Fruit… it’s not just a food group but a fabulous presentation opportunity. Peel and present away!
