I stepped out on the porch today – freshly showered after a hard cycle class – and realized it was warmer outside than it was inside. I think our heat is set on 68 – and my computer says it’s 70 out there, so it’s no wonder! It’s especially pleasant when the sun is shining, which is less and less as the clock ticks. I am going to LIVE on this porch this spring and summer!
For lunch I made an egg + cheese sandwich on Dakota. This was outstanding!!
I think it was my extra sharp cheddar.
Have you ever had a kumquat?
I’ve heard about them and seen them, but I’d never tried one until I found them front and center at the grocery store last week. The first one I ate, I peeled. Because the peel just didn’t seem edible. It wasn’t that great. Then they sat on my counter for 5 days. Today I decided to incorporate them into lunch and I had a gut feeling I wasn’t supposed to peel them. After a quick Google search, I found that you are supposed to eat the skin.
Excited about a new flavor – hopefully sweet and succulent – I put a whole one in my mouth.
My gosh – burst of BITTER + SOUR! It definitely tasted like I was eating a mini orange, skin and all. It kind of grew on me for a bit, but I couldn’t finish the bowl. They weren’t all that different from those Warheads I used to eat in the 90s. Perhaps this batch was just off!?
A bit of veg on the side – carrots + Wild Squirrel PB.
We planned this porch for computers – outlets on both sides! I’m all set up and blogging outdoors. Hoping to work for a few hours and hoping the chill stays off the air.
Please share your kumquat experiences!!
