2:00 . . . 1 cantaloupe
3:00 . . . 1 charentais melon (in picture)
4:00 . . . 1 cantaloupe + some campari tomatoes
8:00 . . . 1 large honeydew

I was a TOTAL melonhead yesterday. And that charentais melon was heavenly! They are famously french melons, hence the cute name. Thankfully, someone is now growing them in the US.
You can see it is slightly smaller than a cantaloupe, but richer in color and taste, and sweeter. I tried these last year for the first time and now I am hooked. Yesterday, I was OMGing all over the place. I know why Anne Osborne loves them so much! She wrote an article about the charentais melon that is excellent and so poetic. Thank you, Anne! ♥
Melons are such a WONDERFUL food to eat. . . so soothing, sweet, and easy to digest. It is perfect, like baby food. You can baby yourself with melon.
I am so grateful that I get to eat more charentais today.
Must. Buy. More.
