Try It, You'll Like It....Maybe
I am one of those people who love to try new foods. I do not like being stuck in any food ruts. Even on a budget, I scour my cookbooks for new dishes to make. Also, when at a potluck I will typically put a bite or two of every dish I see that I DON'T recognize on my plate. Who cares about the fried chicken and homemade mashed potatoes that everyone fights over. I am there to discover something new!
At one of our churches we had a Laotian group who used our building for their church on Sunday afternoons. J & I, being the pastor and wife, were invited to their potluck dinners for special occasions. J would look carefully for ANYTHING he could recognize and only eat a very small portion of it. I, on the other hand, sampled it all. I do not know what all I ate, but I LOVED it!
I am going to have a label called, try it you'll like it, for foods that I try that I really enjoy. Today I am featuring the Crenshaw melon. Oh, how I love this melon...it is like a Cantaloupe taken to the next level! They are very sweet & juicy. They are in season and on sale at my local Wal-Mart.
Have you ever tried this melon? What are your favorite summer fruits? I'd love some new ideas!
