I have had a really busy day. They all are actually.
I did go to the grocery store today and have been going to town on juicy food.
I picked up this “personal watermelon”, i.e. a mini watermelon, from the grocery store.
I like the theory of smaller watermelons because really, I don’t need to buy a watermelon the size of a TV since I have no parties coming up and therefore no help to eat down that tv-sized melon.
Christine told me that she looks for watermelon with white on them because it means they’ve been ripened on the vine longer and produces less mealiness.
I tried the white tip today…
…with nice success!
I also picked up this huge yellow pepper for $1.25
Peppers are a splurge item if they’re not on sale but I’m so glad I bought this gem
I could make a Wild Rice & Raw Stuffed Pepper with it
Or stuff them with any sort of quinoa salad or pasta salad.
Or use as a most excellent vehicle for dipping out mouthfuls of Cheater’s Guacamole
Who needs chips when you have pepper wedges?
I love having fresh fruits and veggies cut up and waiting for me in the fridge. Makes my life easier.
And I love having a treat stash in the freezer. Dozens of balls, bites, and bars.
Today I reached in for a few No Bake White Chocolate & Mango Cookie Dough Bites
It was fun reading over the comments from my last post, Greens & Reds, about what the last green (or red) food you ate was.
And I also enjoyed hearing what supplements you take, and your overall thoughts about supplements vs. real food.
And my Packing Lunches post is still going strong. Guess everyone likes to read about what other people pack in their lunches. Thanks for continuing to fill me in on your lunch bag stash.
1. What was the last juicy thing you ate?
The yellow peppers and watermelon! Yum! And I’m well-hydrated from all that watermelon.
2. Do you have any whole watermelon picking tips?
3. What was the last juicy thing you did or heard?
The last juicy thing I did was buy a few things online for myself. Not “juicy” per se, but it sure was fun cyber shopping when I should have been sleeping.
Last juicy thing I heard…where do I start? From who’s having an affair, to who’s getting divorced, to who’s getting plastic surgery, to who’s pregnant, to who’s short-selling their house, I have friends with very interesting lives. I heard all of that in the past couple days. Juicy much?
Your turn to dish on all things juicy!
P.S. I just started a new giveaway, Summer Tea Time!
And it’s the FINAL reminder to enter the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Giveaway. Winner announced on the next post.
