30 Bananas a Day!

Today I got to go to some new stores to check out their possibly odd and certainly new produce! I went down to the Asian market in my area of Houston in search of dragonfruit. I'd seen some there the last time I was hunting in the produce section and didn't pick any up, but after reading Freelee's post on how to choose ripe fruit, I felt like I had the power to confidently pick good dragonfruits. Sadly, though, they didn't have any (BOOOO!), so instead I picked up a sweet papaya, some honey tangerines, and some sapotes (although I'm not quite sure what to do with these yet). Next I went to the local Fiesta (super cheap grocery chain surprisingly known for their variety of produce) and picked up a TON of stuff: blood oranges (sooo yummy!), minneola tangelos, clementines, grapefruit, some cuke-a-sauruses (though, again, I'm not sure what to do with them), a breadfruit, pablano peppers (my fave!), regular-type mangoes, atualfo mangoes, bananas (of course), and, to top it all off, a big-ace watermelon. My kitchen counter looks like a fruit stand! 

 

The best part was making myself a HUGE green salad tonight and, instead of using dressing, I cut open one of the tangelos and just squeezed the WHOLE THING right over the salad, then pulled the pulp out as a topping. INSTANT SALAD DRESSING, YA'LL!! It was so sweet and juicy that I didn't even miss "regular" dressing. I had to have a tangelo by itself for my "dessert" too. That's how good they were! I'm thinking about going back for more in a little while, too. Gotta eat them calories!

 

All in all, today was a good fruit day. I'M SO EXCITED!!!

I'm sorry, did you say PEANUT BUTTER FRUIT??? What, is God taking requests now? BECAUSE THAT WOULD TOTALLY BE MY REQUEST. 

 

I'll be on the lookout for purple dragonfruit. In the meantime, I went back to the grocery and bought 24 more tangelos and some sweet lemons to dress some mega-salads. Bought three or four heads of boston lettuce too (MY ULTIMATE FAVE!!!!), so Momma's gonna be eating some salad tonight! YES!

 

And I agree about the "sweet" thing. I'm seeing it in a whole new light. Now it's REALLY a compliment to exclaim that something is "totally sweet"! 

 

Let me know when you go to Hawaii -- I want moment-by-moment updates on the PB fruit.

Sweet!! (I used to hate that word but now it has whole new meaning for me)

 

Try and find the purple flesh dragonfruit, it's the most beautiful fruit i've ever seen when you cut it open. So many fruits, so little time. This is why I want to go to somewhere like Hawaii to try the chocolate sapote and peanut butter fruit, they sound too good to be true but apparently they exist :)
