A New Food Discovery

We have stopped a few times at a produce stand on the outskirts of town.  They have a nice selection of reasonably priced produce.  The other day I asked what a persimmon tastes like.  The guy had a hard time describing it and told me to take one and try it.  So I did.

It looks kind of like a tomato, but it’s not as soft.  It is definitely not like anything I’ve eaten before with a mild flavor.  I would compare it to a pear for texture and taste, but not exactly.  I found out they are high in Vitamin A and C and fiber and are good for you.  I’ll be going back and buying some.  I love new discoveries!

On Wednesday I had planned to run a few errands.  It had been raining most of the day, and when I got down to the campground entrance road, there was water flowing over it again.  It wasn’t closed this time, but I wasn’t taking any chances so I came back home.  Yesterday the rain stopped, and the road was fine so I did some grocery shopping and picked up some fabric for a quilt project.

We took a little walk yesterday and it was a bit chilly but the sun was shining.  The weather people are going on and on about the arctic temperatures.  It got into the 30s last night.  It makes us laugh :)

I updated my Campground Review page and organized the digital pictures I took while the boys were here.   We’ve rented a few movies at Redbox including Salt, Charlie St. Cloud and Going the Distance.  They were all OK, nothing earth shattering. 

I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable New Year’s Eve.  We have no big plans.  We’ll enjoy the wine we bought in Pahrump and watch the festivities on TV.

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!

  1. Have you tried jicama yet? It is good in salads and as a dipping veggie.

  2. Now I want to try a persimmon. It has been in the 40's here and people are dressed like it is below zero, makes us laugh too. Though this is colder than I would like it is still considered warm for us Upper Midwest folks! :)

  3. My Pop made me try a persimmon. I did NOT like it. The texture didn't match up to what I was expecting. I didn't spit it out. That shows I'm maturing :)
