My newest discovery was a pummelo. Shopping in Whole Foods last week, I saw a large display of them. They caught my eye because they’re huge – easily double the size of a large grapefruit, if not more.Pin It
Month: December 2010
I created this recipe after researching pummelos. I kept finding it paired with avocados in different things, so I put together a quick salsa. I was a bit worried about the cilantro, but the final product was very tasty.Pin It
While researching pummelos, I came across several referenced to candying the rind. It smelled so wonderful that I thought that I would try my hand at candying it just to try it out. I’m so glad I did. What a delicious,citrusy treat. This would be perfect on top of a cake – I will get started on pairing the perfect cake for these little sugary strips now.Pin It
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of December 6th. Wow. Is it really December already? Outside of my home in central Kentucky, the world is blanketed in snow, while inside my tree lights are quietly blinking – yet it’s hard to imagine how quickly the last year has gone. I will be putting together a Christmas menu, just like I did with my Thanksgiving Extravaganza, so be on the lookout for that.
This is a busy week – we have something almost every night. As such, my dinners are simplified and will be easier to make ahead of time so that we can eat as we have an opportunity. As far as desserts go, I still owe you a recipe for whole wheat chocolate chip cookies – and my cookie jar is nothing but crumbs. I hope to get to that this week!Pin It
Shopping at the mall Thanksgiving weekend, I saw a sight that broke my heart. A little girl of approximately six or seven years old in pigtails and Mary Janes was sitting on the ledge of a store’s window front. She was all innocence and bubblegum bubbles, and was laughing at a baby in a stroller. In the window above her head was a Victoria’s Secret model, looking up with a seductive look at the camera above her, that looked down the exposed cleavage of the barely covered up breasts, her torso bare down to a very skimpy pair of panties.Pin It
While shopping in Abu Dhabi with Gregg, we came across this purse. Gregg saw it first and directed my attention to it, then convinced me to purchase it. Back story: I LOVE purses. But, since I no longer work a job that requires me to dress up in business suits and leave the house every day, I refrain from feeding what Gregg calls my “purse fetish”. Well, I try to refrain. heh. Anyway, he convinced me to buy it because it matched my set.
