California Pitted Dates

IMG_0159

In one sense of the word, I haven’t had a date in fifteen years. In another sense of the word, one that’s more about fruit, I had my first date today. It was okay. I was really enthusiastic about them for looking like raisins but not tasting like raisins, but the more I think of it, the more I realize that tasting like raisins is a really low bar to clear. Also, and this is probably a really stupid question, do they make fresh dates? Are they better? 2.4/5

Frozen Bananas

So many foods make a big deal about how they are “fresh, never frozen.” But there’s a curious alchemy that happens when you freeze a banana that makes it, already my favorite fruit, even more delicious. We ought to turn more fruits into popsicles, just to see what happens. Peaches, maybe. Or watermelons. On another note, guess how many times I had to sing Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback Girl to type this out. Hint: it is more than three. 4.9/5
