Fruit Plates and Tablescapes.
My husband brought home a lot of fruit last night (he hit the grocery store after they'd reduced a lot of produce) and suggested I make a fruit salad. I bristled. I don't know why this is exactly, but fruit seems so much less appetising when presented as a fruit salad. But a fruit platter? I am so in.
In fact, sometimes a fruit platter seems even more appetising than plain ol' fruit. Orange, mango, and pineapple are good, but slice 'em up and call it a 'Tropical Fruit Platter' and suddenly, ooh la la!
Plus, a pineapple top in an old peanut butter jar on top of an oven mitt you made when you were a kid makes a very tasteful tablescape.
