Yesterday I ate:
9:00 . . . juice of 8 valencia oranges
12:00 . . 2 cantaloupes
4:00 . . . 4 valencia oranges + 8 dates
8:00 . . . juice of 10 oranges + 1 lb. cherry tomatoes
They are predicting a major snowstorm for this weekend, so I will need to stock up. I imagine I will just pick up LOTS of oranges, bananas, dates, cantaloupes, tomatoes, pineapples and anything else that looks promising.
I am really into the oranges now and thankfully they are excellent. So are the cantaloupes. All have been quite syrupy lately, and I find myself thinking orange. The other day in the store I saw a bottle of Orange Crush, something that was a special treat from my childhood. After that, I just wanted to get home to my own orange syrup. It also reminds me of another childhood favorite: Nikl Nips, little wax bottles filled with fake fruity syrup. Have you ever noticed how children LOVE fruit-flavored candy and drinks? Man, I sure did. Children KNOW.
Yes, lately I have orange syrup on the brain. ♥
