The Moroccans and Chinese have it right. There is nothing better than serving a gigantic plate of fresh fruit and tea at the end of dinner. All that delicious fruit stimulates conversation, balances out a heavy meal and keeps everyone engaged at the table a while longer.
After our hearty squash enchilada dinner last night, I brought out a silver tray with slices of ripe pluots, mangoes, blackberries and grapes from the produce market. Delicious!
