Just Peachy!

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a monumental occasion – for two reasons:

  1. because I have this week’s meals more or less under control for the first time in, well, ever. And…
  2. because this is the first time I’ve ever eaten a real peach.  You know, straight from the fruit bowl.  Not from the syrupy goodness of a can.

Hey guys, did you know that peaches are fuzzy?  Okay, I kid – I have seen a peach before.  I know what they look like.  Jamie Oliver would be proud-ish satisfied.

Growing up, we stuck with the basics – apples, bananas, oranges.  They were cheap and always available.
Peaches were always saved for fancy desserts Mum made when we had guests.  And they came out of a can.

Now that I’m earning my own money and not trying to feed a family of four on a limited budget, I splurged a little.  (Seriously guys, these things are at least $6/kg, compared to apples at $2-3/kg).

Long story short:  Me like.
And it’s nothing like the mushy slices from a can at all!

You can expect to see a few more outbursts like this one as I work through the master shopping list our boot camp trainer has given us.  There’s plenty on there that I love – but there’s plenty on there that I’ve never tried, either.  Like guava, seitan, hemp seeds and quinoa (my parents were relatively straight-forward “meat and three vege” meal kind of people).

So, watch this space!

  1. My parents were very much the same, those kind of meals make me not want to have dinner, they just feel, bland. But i’ve become a seriously picky eater now because that is all i ever had! I wish i could go shopping, pick lots of new foods and be amazed by the flavours, but i havent had any luck so far and im too scared to try some. I want to like peaches too!!
