Fruits of the 4th

I found a Fourth of July dessert that I surprisingly haven’t made. And it’s so simple.

Strawberries.
Bananas.
Blueberries.
Skewers.

Beautiful and easy.

I really hope someone makes it for me.

Call me curdled

Yummy? Creamy? Better-tasting?

Sorry, Greek yogurt, I ain’t buying it.

greek-yogurt-masterOh, I’ve tried your wares — different brands, different fruit-and-yogurt combos, too — and it’s true you don’t taste like other yogurts…

You taste like sour cream.

And I wouldn’t choose to eat anything that has turned for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I did add the fruit. Didn’t help. I added sweetener, too…and then wondered why I was going to all that trouble when I can simply eat Activia when I have a hankering for yogurt.

It already tastes good.

john-stamos-superbowl-commercialI’ll admit, John Stamos is a very appealing spokesperson for Greek yogurt, but he doesn’t deliver, either —

When I bought his brand, he was nowhere to be seen.

Maybe that accounts for the bad taste in my mouth.

Waterlogged

Well, I did it. I bought a whole watermelon at the store.

And now I have five pounds of regret in my refrigerator.

watermelonI usually spring for the over-priced containers of pre-sliced melon. I know they are gouging me, but it’s convenient…and I can eat that much.

Sure, that monstrosity in my frig was a bargain, but once I cut it — I’m gonna have to eat it all…or end up throwing half of it way.

Guess what I’m having for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next few days?

 

Legen — wait for it — dary creature

Here’s one monster you won’t find at the San Diego Comic Con this weekend….

Loch Ness Banana

Website imgur.com says the much feared, very fabled fruit was first spotted almost 12 months ago, but this is my first sighting.

Slippery little devil.

Basket case

If you watch Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson with any regularity — and you know I certainly do — you’ve no doubt noticed…

The fruit basket

It’s Craig’s new way to bid guests good-bye.  Instead of an awkward pause or a big cash prize or a harmonica duet, guests are sent on their way with the exotic fruit of their choice.

After Craig makes an innuendo or two.

Well, today I discovered a new fruit that absolutely needs to be added to that basket.  Heck, you could fill the whole thing with ’em — they are that perfect for Craig’s sense of humor.

Meet the rambutan.

It grows in Southeast Asia, looks like a cousin of the Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors, and is reportedly sweet and sour and slightly grape-like and gummy to the taste.

But I’m pretty sure Craig would just be excited that they look like little hair balls.

Creepy alien-looking hairy balls.

An American tale

Once upon a time there was an apple.

He dreamed of one day being an apple pie on a Thanskgiving Day dinner table.  Or maybe an apple cake for a very good girl or boy’s special birthday.

Heck, he would have settled for a turnover at McDonald’s — gooey, crispy goodness on the run.

But what did life have in store for this apple?

Oh well, at least he was in….
