Maiden Voyage

Well, here I go! After some strong encouragement from a few friends, I am starting a blog. Since its late, and I spent way too long customizing the “theme” of this thing, I am going to start small.

Fruit. What is better than fruit? I am always amazed at how satisfying fruit can be. I live in the mountains of Appalachia, where winter is suffocating. I have probably muttered, “We should move to f**king Florida.” a hundred times. But this week a little ray of Florida sun found its way into my local Food Lion. I had my eye on onions, and potatoes, stew was on my mind. When suddenly the smell of grapefruit surrounded me. And it was on sale!

My rule with fruit is: if you walk by it, and don’t smell it, you probably shouldn’t buy it. Following this logic, I tend to flock farmers markets for local fruit, but in Winter when the markets are closed, I have no other choice.

To make a long story short, I bought several pounds of grapefruit, and we all had a glorious summer snack, while preparing for a snow storm.

Sometimes, you have to make your own Summer.
