Apples, grapes… any kind of fruit gives me the energy I need to get through my busy day.

Dear Friends,
Summer days are still with us, albeit we’ve having a fairly mild one with temperature. Thank heavens. The plants and crops are responding to the shorter days, especially late season fruit with final output and this week adds to what you already might have in your kitchen. It’s a great time to compile a bowl of mixed cut fruits, including chopped dates, nuts, dried berries…anything else you might have. The thing to keep in mind and juggle, is getting everything ripe and ready at one time. You have to keep an eye on them, like the plums or avocado, and check to see if they are softening up.
The dressing part is fun. As a base, you might use yogurt, cream, mayo..lots of choices and depends on what you have on hand and then start adding. Could be vanilla, a little cinnamon, honey, stevia, a little home-made jam, nuts, dried fruits, granola and a squeeze of lemon. They all seem to come out delicious so be creative and savor.
Happy Birthday to my mother, Betty Caughlin, celebrating her 92nd today! Still gorgeous.
