I find that the older I get, the harder it is to make new friends.
[insert sigh of sadness]
I just met a woman who decided to make friends by starting a book club in her community. The book club involved reading a book and then engaging in a related activity in the community (like reading a book about Vietnam and then going out for Vietnamese food). She ended up with more than 150 interested women!
I try to make new friends by looking for and staying open to opportunities. I recently got invited to a potluck at Sew Crafty (a craft studio and sewing lounge in my neighborhood), and I jumped at the chance to meet new people. Since I've been trying to eat healthier foods, I decided not to make homemade brownies and instead make fruit kabobs.
They were super fun and easy to make, and would be a good option for any celebration (e.g., wedding, shower, random get-together, etc.).
- Fruit (any kind, really; I like watermelon, strawberries, fresh pineapple, and grapes)
- Yogurt (I like vanilla)
- Shredded coconut
- Cut up the fruit and set it up in an assembly-line fashion.
- Assemble the kabobs.
- Spread yogurt on a plate. Sprinkle coconut on a separate plate.
- Roll each kabob in the yogurt and then the coconut.
