March 3, 2009

Today was a much better day temp wise. We woke up to cloud cover which lasted most of the day and managed to keep the temps in the low 80’s. That is a good thing! Decided it was cool enough to leave the furballs and head over to the downtown farmer’s market. I decided I wanted to try a Papaya. Once home, I cut the thing open and scooped out the seeds, removed the outer skin and popped a chunk in my mouth. “Ok, now that is different from what I expected!” Not a bad taste, but not a really good taste either. At first it is a little sweet and ya start thinking you’ll like it. Then, it changes and morphs into something not so pleasant laying there in your month. I also notice when I was cleaning it that it has a somewhat slimy texture like an avocado. I don’t know, I’m certainly not going to eat this thing raw. I will have to see if I can come up with a recipe that I can use it in. I also bought a whole bag of lemons for $2.00. I made lemonade! That was just as I expected and quite good. Actually reminded me of the lemon shake ups I used to have at the county fair.

Came home and found the cooler temps had revived the furballs. They were definitely ready for a walk. I took them out to the sand lot so they could burn off some of that pent up energy.

One thing is clear, the desert is starting to come alive with color. Almost everywhere you look now, something is in bloom. I’m really looking forward to seeing it in all it’s glory. I’ll try to snap some photos for next time..........
