The most popular pick!

Maybe my neighborhood is different from yours, but the most popular food at community gatherings is a tray/plate/cup/bowl of freshly cut vegetables! There was a time when it wasn't on the menu, but then a friend decided to bring "something else," instead of baking a cake or cookies, and she didn't want to bring anything ready-made.

We frequently have "events" in which lots of people share in the preparation of "nosherei," food. The standard "order" used to be: "bake a cake," but now things have changed.

Colorful and delicious selections of cucumbers, peppers, carrots, tomatoes, canned asparagus, baby canned corn and other healthy goodies are the target. And we don't even provide lots of dips. There usually are bowls of chumus and t'china, the mid-eastern standards made from chickpeas and sesame, but most people just take the crisp juicy vegetables straight to their mouths.

Try it!
