I think it's safe to say that my girlies are fruit monsters. They love love love fruit...any kind, any way, any time. I'm so happy about that because this lady loves it just as much.
Have you priced fruit lately? It's getting up there! Crazy economy...won't you just leave the prices of things be and allow us to buy our food at reasonable prices. Grrr!!! Anyhoo...
Our market has a rack in the produce section for sale items. I compare it to the Merita bread stores...you know the place for day old bread that is perfectly fine but sells at half the original price...yeah...that one. Well, I love this rack. It means I get to buy some sort of fruit or veggie as a discounted price. Since either one of those last only a matter of minutes in our house, I have NO problem buying them this way.
Today...well...I was thrilled when I walked up and saw a big big bag of peaches. I know right!!! I checked them out and there was nothing wrong with them. I immediately had ideas flashing through my mind of what intentions were in store for these little babies. Oh but that's not it!!
I saw this too!! What's that?
Oh just some ginger roots. MMM..hmm! That's right! And did you know we love ginger too? Well it's a true story. The good thing about ginger is it can be kept in the freezer until you need it . YAY! At $1.50 for all of this...I almost feel as if I'm stealing from the market. Wellllllll...nah I don't!
But...back to the peaches...
Washed, peeled, and diced up to create a nice bowl of sweet summer goodness!
And even fruit monsters like these two can only consume so many peaches before they begin to go bad...
Homemade peach fruitcups. Ready to eat at your disposal!!
Summer can't get better than this....or can it?!?!?
