Look at this easy healthy Thanksgiving dessert that is so fun! Who doesn't love fruit! this photo came from one of our most creative visitors, Darcy from California.. It was the snack for a class party. Loved how they have the turkey popping out of a teepee!! What do you need?  A melon to serve as the turkey body, a head made from half a yellow pepper with his gobbler made from a slice of red pepper.  Using kabob sticks add grapes, cheese cubes, more peppers for color and presto.. a colorful edible Turkey centerpiece!
