A New Career?

Kelly & the Fruit Plate I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up but catering/food service might have made the list of options for me. A few days ago I was asked to make a fruit plate for a funeral luncheon for some friends of ours. I was happy to do it. I really enjoy making things, especially food, for other people. I rarely, if ever, hear complaints. It's also another way I like to be creative. I went to the store last night to pick up some fresh fruit. The blueberries were gone. How could that be? I picked up some grapes (green and red), pineapple, kiwi, strawberries, and watermelon. I was trying to find different textures as well as colors. I would have loved to use banana and apple but as everyone knows they don't look so great after 10 minutes. I ended up not using the kiwi because there wasn't room. Here's my creation. Doesn't it make your mouth water?

That does make me hungry, and reminds me of tasty parmesean chicken and chicken and rice burritos that have been enjoyed by us in your kitchen!

Yum, I LOVE fruit! It looks absolutely delicious and beautiful! I miss dinner with the Standifords. . . someday we'll do it again.

Oh don't forget the chicken cordon bleu. Kelly, have you made it for Richard yet? I'm making the burritos tomorrow.
