Today has been a pretty dreary Sunday for us here in V-town. But My Love and I still made the best of it! We busied ourselves with market trips, cooking food for him, mixing music and yoga-ing. All in all, I would say this day was a success.
Earlier in this week, when it was still raining like it meant it, I ventured to the markets on my weekly big shop. I a let down of sorts! They had no Shady mangoes, which made my heart sad, and when I got to the far away market, they had no Cantaloupes!! Imagine my dismay, knowing well how I feel about melons;
Instead of walking away empty-handed, I went for some Honeydew!!
I do love Honeydew, the only reason I don’t go for it as often, is because it is usually more expensive, and I am on a wee bit of a tight budget. This week, caution was thrown to the wind, because a week without melon, is a week not worth doing at all.
I treated my new melon like I would my old melon. Cut off both ends, cut in half, scooped out and blended the seeds, peel and placed on a plate along with his new family;
Honeydew live up to their name taste wise. When they are ripe they are absolutely syrupy sweet with a texture that will melt in your mouth. They are high in vitamin C, the B vitamins, copper and also potassium, which can help to regulate blood pressure!
I love my Honeydew, and I did not regret spending the extra cash.
Their pudding is pretty good too;
Honeydew, when mixed with some banana, makes an AMAZING ice cream too!
Don’t be afraid to try a new melon every once in a while. You never know how much you will love it until you eat it!
