Last Sunday, it was our turn to bring the snacks for the small group meeting we attend at church. The other group members had set the bar high – homemade guacamole (that’s amazing), fruit trays, tortilla pinwheels, and spinach and artichoke dip (also amazing). We had planned to bring a fruit tray, but there were none available at Walmart. Bummer. The only produce that looked nice was the apples. We bought 6 of them, 3Â red and 3Â green, and arranged pretty apple slices on a tray. Something was missing. We needed some fruit dip. I have a good fruit dip recipe that uses cream cheese and marshmallow fluff, but it was 20 minutes before we had to leave, and we didn’t have any marshmallow fluff. That wouldn’t do. Fruit dip. I started with cream cheese and cinnamon, but I needed something to thin it a bit. I tried a can of sweetened condensed milk. It tasted good, but was missing zing. I added a splash of lemon juice, and it was perfect. The kids liked the fruit dip so much that they each ate a bowl full (of the leftovers, after small group was over).
