It's the little things in life....

I had to take a break from doing my software engineering homework to blog about the best fruit salad I have had all summer.

When i lived in Atlanta, Sunday night was always a time for me to spend about half an hour chopping up watermelon, cantelope, honeydew, and pineapple to make a big huge fruit salad to last through the week.

I still cut up fruit every week, but have found the melons here to be a lot less satisfying than down South. I therefore do not toss all the fruit together, creating separate bowls for the excellent watermelon, mediocre cantelope, passable honeydew, or whatever the melon of the day brings.

BUT today! Today! Today everything was great! DELICIOUS watermelon! Same for the honeydew and cantelope! I threw them all together in my big, huge silver bowl. I even took a handful of blueberries and threw them on the top. This salad is just amazing. I'm so happy.

The fruit was all bought at Wilson's Farm in Lexington, for any of you Massachusetts folk out there hoping to reach the level of euphoria I have achieved today.

For those not into fruit, I am going to try to get my pregnant little sister to guest blog for me about the wonders of Fluff.

There are some AMAZINGLY good local farms within an hour of Boston. They have not only great veggies, but also some fantastic cheese. If you don't have a car or don't want to drive, you can get some of them online, e.g. http://www.igourmet.com/shoppe/shoppe.asp?cat=12&subcat=Massachusetts.

I also always enjoy supporting local farmers. In 6th grade I had to spend one day a week farming during the entire school year, and I have a n appreciation of how hard it is.

Yay! I agree about the local farmers. I try to get to Wilson's whenever possible. Thanks very much for the link!!! And for the image of a 10-year-old Yoav working on a Kibbutz. =D
