Fruit and vegetable snack tray

Sorry for today’s late posting…I was called for jury duty, and the change in my morning routine caused me to forget to post. One nice thing about getting called to jury duty in my community is the fact that the courthouse is on the beach. Who could complain about that?
Several of my office colleagues and I decided to whip up a celebratory feast last week. Unlike many offices, we trend toward healthy and homemade options, although we haven’t entirely sworn off junk food. In addition to some really delicious meatballs made by one of the office managers, another colleague made a very tasty dessert, and I brought a fruit and cheese tray. There are about 80 of us sharing office quarters on our floor, and we all enjoyed the opportunity to take a break, and enjoy a meal together.
There’s really no recipe for making a fruit and cheese tray. Use a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables, 1-2 types of cheese, and some crackers or fresh bread. I know you can buy platters already made at local grocery stores. However, I prefer to put together my own. Not only am I assured that the ingredients are their freshest, but I also can make sure that my ingredients are clean with no residues of chemicals or other undesirable elements I’d rather not consume.
