This week a truly important milestone occurred in the Pigalina household – Mr Pigalina gained his 10,000 fruit chopped achievement in Fruit Ninja, which was the last to be gained.
Dragon fruit are worth extra points. It seems that the supermarket thinks so too, charging $8.19 each. We are yet to taste it.
I am a little fussy about food textures – peach and apricot skin? Ick! Squishy fruit bits in yoghurt? Bleugh! Celery? Urgh! (Though I think this is more to do with the earwig in the celery in George’s Marvelous Medicine than the stringiness of it). Therefore it surprises me that I love passionfruit with its crunchy seeds surrounded in slime.
After many weeks of searching they were finally back in stock at my usual supermarket. I bought four and scoffed them. At that price it is a good job they weigh practically nothing.
Had to get strawberries for morning tea at work and practically all of the punnets contained weird looking fruit. I picked, what I thought were, the best two punnets only to be greated by this monster and its many deformed chums.
Our first homegrown blueberry (so tiny).
