Today was a fruit kind of day. Mostly because it was a dont-leave-the-house kind of day, and our fridge is full of fruit!
I took pictures of the Big Three today. Mostly because they are so darn photogenic (well, at least 2 of them!)
1. Grapefruit! So delicious, so worth all the work, and satisfies my “sour” craving (cant compare to Sour Straws but it helps hold it off!)
The one below was SO RIPE. Look at the color, it was perfect!
2. Cherries. They feel so decadent. Maybe its because they are so expensive? I didnt eat them as a child. The pits scared me (I may or may not have had a little bit of a choking problem when I was little…ice cubes, oranges, gobstoppers, etc.), In fact I didn’t even try one until 2007! Now, I cannot live without them. Everytime they are on sale at the grocery store, I eat my fill, to hold me over until the next sale!
3. Flattened bananas. The only way to eat a banana, in my opinion! Its like dessert, tastes like banana bread, and is chewy (so…almost like candy?). The only place Ive ever found them is Trader Joe’s (aka the best store on earth.) They ARE core friendly–they are nothing but bananas, flattened!
If you never take another recommendation from my blog, just take this one: TRY FLATTENED BANANAS! Will change your life!
And on that note, I am going to relax, and watch reality tv into the wee hours of the night. Because SCHOOL WAS JUST CANCELLED FOR TOMORROW! A nice little mid-week vacation, I guess! Now I can squeeze in another bike ride tomorrow, I guess, so no complaints from me!
What’s your favorite fruit(s)–I know it is hard to pick one so give me your top ones!!
-It took me a while to narrow this down. I also really like raspberries and kiwis! Im totally a fruit girl, not a vegetable girl!
Is it snowing where you are? Considering its snowing in 29 (right?) states, the odds are in your favor that it is!
-It is snowing here…7 inches today, 10 more tomorrow. A lot of shoveling to go!
