I work with a girl who has more food allergies than I ever thought possible. I am completely fancinated because rather than substituting fake and processed blah-blah, she chooses to eat various unique fruits and vegetables. Quick side note– I still don’t understand why someone would buy something like vegan “cheese”. If you are vegan- why the heck do you want cheese anyway? Now, back to my coworker. We are constantly talking about what we each cooked for dinner the night before and I am always blown away with the things that she cooks. She uses vegetables I have never heard of. She mixes ingredients I would have never thought to mix. Seriously, this girl needs to write a cook book.
I use the same vegetables almost every week and eat the same fruit as snacks on almost every occasion, so I have decided to challenge myself to buy atleast one fruit and one vegetable every week that I have never had or have never cooked before. This week I purchased a Honey Rock Melon.
I had really high expectations and was hoping that it would taste significantly different than your average cantelope, but it really didn’t. It was much bigger though, so I did get more for my money.
I am looking forward to trying spaghetti squash for the first time on Monday night. I will post of my reaction later this next week! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!
