I know some of you are annoyed when I post about our bounty, but it was a good one today for sure! A couple of items that I never buy myself and one baggie of something I've never even heard of! This was our basket:
I've never bought mangoes or cantaloupe before. I'm not even sure that I've tasted a mango before. That's weird considering I love fruits and vegetables. I weighed the cantaloupe because I was curious to know how big it was...4 pounds!!! There is also a 3lb bag of pears you can't quite see and the little brown things in the bag up front...those are Jerusalem artichokes *aka sunchokes.*
With tonight's dinner, we had the sunchokes *smashed with a little butter, a splash of milk, and some cheese* and also fresh broccoli/cauliflower mix. It was delicious. The sunchokes are a bit sweet and would almost remind you of a potato, but they're not quite as dense as a potato.
For lunch, I had this with that fine looking butter lettuce in the back. The only swap that I made was instead of the light mayo, I used my light ranch dressing *the 2tbsp of ranch mix with light mayo/fat free buttermilk*. Oooh boy, was that yummy. I did use turkey bacon. I think I might make another wrap tomorrow.
Also a friendly reminder go back to this post and leave a comment about what your favorite cookie is so that you can be entered into a giveaway by yours truly *tasty cookies done my way* sent directly to your house. Yumm!
I also want to say, I almost have 20 followers. That's a big deal for me. I have also logged just over 2,500 views just since the end of December. It makes me all warm and fuzzy. So, keep on reading and refer a friend or two. I just like sharing my story with others!!
