A "Cool" Lunch

It's over 100 degrees here today. I don't feel like eating a heavy meal when it's so hot, so I opted for a light lunch--just some fresh fruit from the produce stand. Very refreshing! I also fixed a sweet dip for the fruit. The kids don't care much for it, but I do! :) Easy Fruit Dip 8 oz. cream cheese 1 small jar of marshmellow creme 2 Tbs. vanilla

Mmmmmm . . . that's looks so refreshing! It's "hot" here this week too (I won't tell you how hot, because you'd probably want to hit me), so I'm having to push myself to cook.

That looks so beautiful and delicious! One of the benefits of living in Florida, I'm sure. (o:

It has been awhile since I came by to see you. And now I can really see you! Imagine my surprise to see your pretty self over there on the right.

And your love pool. Oh, a pool in FL is a must-have which I do not have. But I have woods which bring wonderful shade.

Good to see you all settled in and enjoying your new ministry.

yuuuummy!!!

The dip sounds good! I do a really easy dip for fruit, too. I use vanilla yogurt and add honey to taste. It's sweet with a little tart "kick"!

I hope you're taking some time to enjoy your pool on these days when it doesn't rain!

Try to stay "cool".

Yum! That looks soooo good! And I would be dipping with you. ;-)
I know what you mean by hot. Yesterday, my mom came over, and I had chicken salad, and grapes. Then we went out to Chick-Fil-A for Ice Cream. And let the kids play *indoors*. Man, it was VERY hot yesterday!

Yummo! It looks lush and tropical! I'm off to hit our produce stands tomorrow. Can't wait.

That fruit plate looks so delicious, and we love the dip here, too. I sometimes grate a little nutmeg on the top before I serve it. It gives it a little different taste.

The fruit looks so yummy! Because our temps are often over 100 degrees throughout the summer, we eat LOTS of fresh fruits--there is just something very refreshing about them. : )

Hugs!
