Vintage Tiered Dish

Hi everyone!

Man, this week is flying by!! Someone needs to slow down time or add a few extra hours to each day!



It is time for Vintage Thingie Thursday!

I got this fun piece a couple of weeks ago. I love to use different types of serving dishes. And the retro/vintage ones always catch my attention. Not to mention, the vibrant tomato orange with the flecks of other colors, made it perfect for this time of the year!

Even though people don't believe me, I use these types of dishes just for our everyday meals. I figure why not use fun or pretty things everyday of your life! And almost every meal we have has Crudites on the table. Ooooh, look at Diann using the big 'ol fancy schmancy word for fresh veggies! LOL

Crudités are traditional French appetizers comprising sliced or whole raw vegetables which are dipped in a vinaigrette or another dipping sauce. Crudités often include celery sticks, carrot sticks, bell pepper strips, broccoli, cauliflower, and asparagus spears.

The French word "crudité", which designates uncooked vegetables, originates in much the same way as the English word "crude," from Latin. The Latin word "crūdus" simply means raw. Later, it was refined to "crūditās", which means "undigested food" and then on to "crudité" in French.
