Today's Small Thing
Is your family still all hopped up on sugar from the holidays? Personally, I'm just coming out of a sugar-induced coma and can hardly function.
So here's today's Small Thing: Take the fruit out of your fridge and set it out in a bowl as an edible centerpiece. Or you can artfully cut it up however you like. The point is, get fruity for a day and enjoy what is long forgotten in the month of December: things not dipped in goo.
We recently rekindled a love affair with clementines, simply by putting them in a bowl on the counter! Even little fingers can peel them and eat them like candy. A bag of clementines cost me just a little more than a bag of Cheetos. Both snacks are bright orange, but only one of them makes you glad you ate it afterwards.
