Love to entertain? Of course you do! Having friends and family over for a visit and a meal is great fun. And planning the menu is also fun. Since fruit is healthy and refreshing, and it is a great pre-meal idea, because fruit digest faster than the proteins, carbohydrates, and fats found in most meals, so by eating fruit first, they help digest and move the heavier foods through your body more quickly, which is great for cutting down on the risks of cholesterol and it’s also great for those who are watching their weight.

Eating fruit before your larger meal will also fill you and your guests up at bit before the main faire, and you will find that you and they will eat less because hunger has been satisfied by that fabulous fruit and cream cheese dip you just set on the table.

  1. This is the closest one I could find with your ingredients, but I don’t see why you couldn’t use your whipped cream in the recipe as well, once the dip has “set”, it would make it lighter and fluffier!

  2. Anybody have recipes to make the dip itself… I like to do an easy fruit salad using the cream cheese dip and different kinds of fruit and it’s just delicious

    The best time to purchase a Medigap policy, also known as a Medicare Supplement policy, is during your “open enrollment period”. Don’t get your open enrollment period confused with the Medicare‘s annual open enrollment period – Oct. 15 thru Dec. 7. Federal law gives you a 6-month open enrollment period to apply for a Medigap insurance policy, beginning with the first month that you enroll for benefits under Medicare Part B.

  11. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know
    a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure
    why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it
    in two different internet browsers and both show the
    same outcome.
