Refreshing ‘Dew Snack

A hot day like today calls for a thirst quenching snack.

I bring you Cinnamon Honey Dew!

I love fruit. Love it.

Be it a roadside stand, supermarket, or Farmer’s Market, you can find me in the fruit aisle.  Any day, any time.

I hardly ever buy honey dew, but it was looking and smelling delicious at our roadside stand the other day. I’m so glad I bought some because it is probably the juiciest, sweetest honey dew I have ever had.

All I did was cut some up, throw it in a bowl, and sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. The cinnamon really does an excellent job of bringing out the sweetness of the dew and adding a wonderful spice.
