I thought I’d share some nice summer-time eye candy with you while I spend a few days processing the tons of photos I took while on my vacation.
I had a really great time, but I am happy to be back home where the temperature is mild and the fruit tastes like, well, fruit!
And, that’s the story I want to tell you…
My father-in-law buys some of the most beautiful-looking fruit that I have come across in a long time. It’s the perfect color, the perfect firmness, and the perfect shape for taking pictures of food. But, it tastes like NOTHING. Pop a raspberry in your mouth and all you will taste is lightly flavored water. Now, that’s grocery store quality for you.
I am happy to be home where:
- the fruit is not so pretty, but sweet and flavorful…right off the farmer’s stand – and from my garden.
- there is no wax on my fruit to give me indigestion
- carrots taste like sticks of sugar
So, enjoy the photos and I will see you in a few days with more great stories of my vacation and some yummy recipes!
