I just went to the grocery store to pick up some fresh fruit for dessert at a friend’s place tonight. I was thinking maybe strawberries or a watermelon. I walked through the door and it was information overload! Sales left and right on prime fruit!!! #1 — RAINIER CHERRIES! Heaven on earth at a great price. Then, the personal/small/baby watermelons on sale. Berries — raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, all on what felt like a blowout. Pineapples all screaming ‘pick me, pick me.’ I barely knew what to do!
I had to control myself. For dessert for two people, I left with a small watermelon, cherries, blackberries and raspberries. Sure, it’s a lot, but it’s fruit! I had to be very good and not eat to many while rinsing/prepping. Now, we have to get through dinner!
Summer is such a great season to take advantage of everything we can, from fresh fruit to fresh veggies and enjoy their flavors as much as much as possible. Bon appetit!
