sunflower market is my new best friend. one of the hard things about accepting the fact that i'm a utahn is the produce here. utah has a short growing season so we're at a disadvantage right from the start. and i grew up with the good stuff...the really good stuff... stuff so good that when i ask my kiddos what mommy's favorite food is they ALL yell "salad!" simultaneously. but this is beside the point...here's my point...
this place has GREAT produce for sometime really crazy cheap prices. even the stuff that isn't on sale is really reasonable. yesterday i made my weekly monday stop down in orem while kiddos were being preschooled and i happened upon some nectarines and peaches. (sidenote: i don't like peaches because they are fuzzy and feel funny on my tongue. but if YOU like peaches, i'd bet that theirs taste yummy too.)
so...i happened upon some nectarines...some regular ones and some white ones. i'd never had white nectarines before, but i knew that white peaches were super sweet compared to regular peaches. ANYWAY (this post is way too long) i ate a white nectarine last night around 10 in my attempts to avoid the not so good for me stuff...it was so good that after my first bite i said, "nuh-uh" as i was standing there alone in my kitchen and THEN i walked my pregnant butt upstairs (one more time than i had to) to give some to jon so he'd know how good they were too. he said the same thing when he ate his piece :)
i've eaten a few more since then and only about 1 in 2 taste as good as the first one i ate, but that's still good odds. so RUN, don't walk and head over to sunflower market to get some. i'm not kidding. they made me so happy i forgot about the other stuff i REALLY wanted to eat.
