The one thing I consciously do a lot of is to try and get my hands on local produce and ingredients as much as I can. I may not eventually know exactly how to use them, but the satisfaction of having them always remains unparalleled. Besides, with a little help and research, they’re always put to good use.
What I try and keep an eye on are #fruits that vendors sell off carts as we drive along the #countryside. That’s one thing I certainly love about traveling especially by road...you have such easy access to such a variety of #produce from your own #country.
While we were driving to the mountains, I saw carts full of these humongous #citrus fruits, which if weren’t cut on display, I would never have identified as #grapefruit.
I’ve never had this #fruit before despite its massive popularity. So on our way back I decided to pick a couple to give them a try.
I finally got around to peeling them today. The skin is rather hard under which lies this pillowy soft cotton-like covering which envelopes this beautifully coloured fruit. The membrane surrounding these pearls of fruit is a little tougher than other citrus fruits, and therefore easier to pull out especially since it has quite a bitter undertone to it.
I’ve peeled the entire lot and set it to chill...the husband and I enjoyed some of it in a typically Indian way of eating many fruits — with #chaat#masala to help eliminate any bite that could ruin enjoying a potentially wonderful fruit.

Check it... 80% of #entrepreneurship is about eating problems.
Your problems. And, more importantly, other peoples problems.
#Successful entrepreneurship involves developing a #palette for problems.
The more problems you #consume, the more solutions you #produce.
Then, you #sell your solutions and make #bank.
The #glamour you see #online is only 20% of entrepreneurship at most.
If you want to be a successful
#entrepreneur, get used to eating problems.
Develop a palette for other peoples problems.
Yes, #problems are an acquired the taste.
But, riddle me this... How else will you poop out #quality#solutions?
If there is one orchard you visit this season it has to be @countylineorchard! Not only can you pick your own apples, but they have other tasty treats and amazing attractions. 🍎Now pack up the car and head on over - but be sure to leave room for all the EverCrisp apples you'll be picking, too!
I went to the #pikeplacemarket in Seattle yesterday and I had a lot of fun! I've actually got to main things I want to say on this post... So the first is pretty cool! I walked up to a seafood market and I happened to stand next to this random lady. Then I over heard her say to the vender guy "oh yeah I'm from Maryland..." so that's when I jumped in and said "no way, I just moved out here from Maryland!" then I said I lived in Ocean city. She bursted out laughing and said she's from Salisbury Maryland (a town like 20 or so minutes away as the crow flies). Anyways we were talking and she was telling me about how she was reliving her parents honeymoon which was like 50 or so years ago, if I remember correctly, and that she took the train across country like they did and was hitting all the same spots they stopped at on their trip! I thought that was awesome, but then we got to talking about local stuff back home and it turns out she knows my old boss and about my year long fight for the chickens in the old town I lived in and all sorts of stuff! I thought the world was small when I met the folks from Japan that knew me from ig at Paul's tour but running into practically an old neighbor all the way on the opposite side of the country that I didn't know beforehand was pretty crazy!!! So... I pretty much used up a lot of the space for that little story and you all know I write a lot (too much sometimes, I know lol) so I'm going to post the second half of this post tomorrow... I will tell you that it is about this picture that I captured in the market and the significance behind what is going on in it. It reminded me of the only piece of artwork that I own that I didn't create myself... I'll post a picture of that tomorrow with the story, so stay tuned!
