Walking In The Shade

July 22, 2012

It DID turn out to be a great morning for walking! Matt and I did an hour and a half, with a 30 minute detour to Karen’s to help her assemble a shelf. Our walk made me super excited for crisp fall mornings when we will hopefully be taking the baby out in his stroller or carrier! Just as we returned the sun came out! The AC has been off for a few days now and it was really comfortable. Glad to save a few pennies when I can!

After our walk we chowed down on leftover gazpacho with garbanzo beans –

And a slice of multigrain sourdough smothered in goat cheese!!

Plus two local plums – I don’t know that I’ve had yellow plums before, but they’re good!

Have a great SUNday!

There are soo many types of stone fruit these days! I just bought a plumegranate from the grocery store (plum + pomegranate). Really, really tasty!
And that bread with goat cheese looks incredible… I’m salivating :-).

I’ve never had yellow plums either! I wonder if they’re one of those hybrid fruits like pluots, or just a different variety of plums. I’ll have to keep an eye out for them the next time I go grocery shopping!

Little yellow plums are my favourite summer fruit…they are just coming in the stores now…better when they hit the market! Our Georgia peaches have arrived…just picked up box full…can’t wait to try one…they need to sit and ripen a bit more…oh the anticipation!

I’ve never seen a yellow plum either – I can’t remember the last time I even had a purple plum!

Love plums but like everyone else I’ve never seen a yellow one. I just ate a Pluot that tasted amazing. I’m kind of digging hybrid fruit lately!

I LOVE yellow plums. I’m not even sure they taste all that different but here in California it’s been all about the stone fruits lately and those yellow plums have been my favorite :)

I have never seen yellow plums before. I like purple plums, so I am sure that I would like yellow plums as well :)

Best wishes you and your family as your due date gets closer. :)

ohhh I find that other colored plums are sweeter than the usual dark ones! And I think there are pinkish yellowish ones too? maybe it’s the same one you had! :P Have a gorgeous day Kath~

I found yellow plums at the local orchard yesterday too. I also have never had them but am really enjoying them. They are super juicy but a tad awkward to eat. I end up just popping the whole thing in my mouth and spitting the pit back out. Its precious, I’m sure.

Pretty plums! Plums are one of those fruits that I usually have one of then aren’t in the mood for again until months later. So weird.

I just had my first yellow plum a few hours ago! My friend brought me one from his yard. It looked just like one of yours with the little brown spot. It was yummy – sweet and juicy inside, but tart skin.
