Matt and I celebrated Easter (and the Masters) with my mom and Jim and some friends of theirs. I was asked to bring some fruit... so here's what I did.I used oranges, pineapple, grapes, apples, and blackberriesI sliced the top of the pineapple off, cut it into quarters, sliced off the center core, and then under cut the hunk of pineapple so that it's detached from the skin. Then I cut the pineapple into chunks.I cut the grapes so that people could take one clump instead of the entire clump and then I draped them over the pineapple.I peeled the oranges and added some (pre-cut) apples. The (pre-cut) apples were a great idea because they were already sprayed with citric acid to keep them from browning!Finally came the blackberries... yum. This is my finished fruit plate.The dinning room table set with Jordan AlmondsThe food. Maple glazed bacon, baked french toast, frittata, fruit platter, and in the back-- lemon poppy seed cake for later.Mom's frittata. It had Honey Baked Ham, cheese, onions, and asparagus. It was pretty good-- I think I would have liked a little less asparagus, but it was still pretty good-- and looked really pretty. After all, that's what cooking is all about-- food that looks good-- right?
We had a really good time-- very relaxing. After mom's friends left, Jim and Matt practically ran to the tv where Jim had Tivoed the Masters. Mom and I joined them and we spent the rest of the afternoon watching the tournament. Too bad Phil lost-- we were root'n for you!!
