In the Mood for the Tropics

This week I've been in the mood for the feel of the Tropics!

I sent an email out to my co-workers this morning planning a Tropical Luncheon scheduled for July 3!

Now I've been searching the recipe blogs. One I plan to try out this weekend is a weight watcher favorite!
