06 October 2008

Last night I ended up having about 20-25 peanuts and some handfuls of grapes.  Grapes are so addicting!  I bought 3 pounds yesterday and I probably only have about 1 pound left.  They’re just so easy to snack on and they have a great crunch.  I will definitely be buying more this week.  We also have (actually, had) them at work – I finished them up today icon smile 06 October 2008

    Grapes are seriously addiciting! Evrytime I go to my fridge I always find myselfmindlessly sutffing them in my mouth. I’ve developed a very bad habit!

    HangryPants – A persimmon is mildly sweet and reminds me a little bit of a mango… It’s really hard to describe, actually. I got a bunch for $1/pound at the Japanese market which is an insane price. You have to make sure they’re ripe (soft) otherwise they’re bitter! Hope you can try some :)

    Christie – that’s a great idea! I’ll put it on my shopping list or maybe pick it up at Safeway on my home today. Thanks :)
