Hellllooo! I hope your Thursday is shaping up well.
Wait, it’s Thursday? Wow. I feel like it should be Tuesday or something. Time is certainly doing it’s thing these days.
This morning entailed the same activities as yesterday’s.
Morning coffee, and a solid study session.
Oh I guess there was breakfast somewhere in there too.
Egg whites, turkey bacon, and a whole lot of leftover fruit from Tuesday.
I have been having a major love affair with fruit lately, ya’ll. I crave it something serious. So hard that I can’t go on with my day until I grab some and feel satisfied.
I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that… fruit is good for you, right?
It just feels like my fruity sweet tooth it’s getting a wee bit out of control when I find myself eating it at every single meal. Or maybe when I just sit there with a huge container of cut up whatever at night and go crazy with my fork during an entire viewing of The Voice. (True story.)
Yeah, I need to get back on the moderation train before I burn myself out.
Anyways, the entire point of this fruit talk is to bring up something interesting I found in my kitchen this morning. Have you ever seen a kiwano, or horned melon before?
I don’t know about you, but anything spiky in the produce department kind of gives me the heebie jeebies. I guess pineapples would be the exception to that theory, but maybe not, since I refuse to cut them.
My husband, on the other hand, loves the looks and tastes of exotic fruits. So much that we had to include dragon fruit and lychee on the fruit display at our wedding cocktail hour.
When I saw this crazy melon on our counter this morning, I left the job of cutting it up to Scott. I was oddly intrigued to see what the inside looked like, and I wasn’t sure what I expected, but it wasn’t this.
I think “I’m sorry… but where behind the slimy fish egg looking seeds is the fruit you eat?” was my exact reaction.
I have to appreciate the fruit for being different, but I’m just not sure I can get fully on board with this one. The taste was tart, which I loved, but I made such a mess eating it and felt like all I was eating was seeds. I started flashing back to my early elementary school days when someone told me about watermelon seeds and I started getting worried.
Where do they even go? Ha! I’m being a little dramatic here. Sorry.

Questions of the Day
• Exotic fruit fan? Yes or no?
• What is the weirdest fruit you’ve ever tried? Or favorite?
I love the idea of trying exotic fruits, but (mostly because of the high price tag) we rarely actually bring them home. I have to say that I am a big fan of the dragon fruit. It reminds me of a white kiwi inside, but tastes more like a melon. I would buy it more often if it wasn’t so dang expensive. Only if Scott was home to cut it, of course.

I love fruit too! There isn’t any I don’t like but my favorites are berries, apples and bananas. Pretty standard!
Berries are my fav!

Ahh I’ve never seen the inside of a horned melon before but it does look weird! It seems like it would be slimy! I have to admit that I’m not that adventurous when it comes to fruit- I like the basics but that’s kind of it. But vegetables are a different story, I’m usually always game for a different kinds!
Ha, I wish I was that way about greens. I get so bored with my repeat veggies!
Omg this is a hilarious post. “Where do they even go?”. I’m not huge on exotic fruit …yet. I think I tried passionfruit (is it white with black speckled seed thingies?).
You might be talking about the dragon fruit! Love passion fruit too, though. And really though… where DO they go? 😉
