I got these “Little Hands” organic gala apples for the kid’s lunchboxes, since it takes Drake a whole lunch period to eat a regular one. These aren’t really all that much smaller but they aren’t as large as conventional apples.
I also got a Granny Pounder – This mammoth Granny Smith weighs a pound in and of itself and it dwarfs a Little Hands apple
This guy is destined for some caramel dip..
I also got for Drake, some behemoth Navel Oranges
Then something else caught my eye, while in the citrus section.. The ugliest citrus I had ever seen. Indeed, it was called “Ugli Fruit”. As I was tossing it around, analyzing it’s weight, some old bitties walked past me with their noses crinkled up and asked me “What’s that?!”. “It’s Ugli Fruit”, I replied. “I’d say so..”, they returned. Then they scampered off to the salad counter.
Apparently, this Ugli fruit originates in Jamaica, where it was found growing in the wild. It is described as a cross between a grapefruit and a tangerine and is reported easy to peel.
Indeed, it is quite easy to peel. And the flavor of it is spot on. I say, I could and would eat it in a box with a fox. My only complaint is that the membrane on the thing is sooo thick. I simply peeled off as much as it as I could. The pulp is quite large as well..
Lastly, I picked up some of this..
It’s called Vivaloe and it’s peach flavored aloe juice. It’s clear for the most part, aside from the transparent pulp. Much more appetizing looking than the green funky stuff I found in the local tienda. Aloe juice is purported to assist with digestive issues and help skin look more radiant and hydrated. Had some apprehension about tasting it but I was pleasantly surprised. It tastes like peach propel water with chunks of watery refreshing pulp. I give a thumbs up.
And this is the lighting set I got for Christmas. Not sure I’m using it correctly. Sorta just winging it but I’m slowly figuring things out. Tanks Mawm!
