Ladies and gentlemen, this is a monumental occasion – for two reasons:
- because I have this week’s meals more or less under control for the first time in, well, ever. And…
- 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
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!
