Friday night my husband's and my Bible Study group had a dessert party. Just the idea of a dessert party makes me shiver - so much sugar, so many avoids, so many temptations.
I had already over eaten last week. I stayed away from avoids, but I ate too many nuts and too much dried fruit. I had just turned the corner and was getting back into my usual routine. I didn't need an excuse to splurge on desserts.
I took fruit salad to the party. It was very pretty: pineapple, blueberries, cherries and red grapes. The colors even went along with the Valentine theme.
I was probably the only one who ate all fruit. However, ever so many people commented on what a great idea it was, and most people had a spoon of fruit on their plates alongside the cake and ice cream.
