Sweet.

First of all, if you read my “No comment” post and thought that they were comments I declined leaving on your blog…you were wrong. They were are comments for blogs of people that I am pretty darn sure don’t come around these here parts…the backwoods of the blogosphere. The comments I didn’t make on your blog? Those were all nice comments. Because I also fear making nice, sweet comments and being mistaken for a weirdo. It’s a lose/lose situation. What can I say?

For lunch I had a “spicy bean burger” in a pita, with tomato and lettuce and…black cherry jam. Weird, I know, but it was really, really good. I don’t know what exactly made me think it would be good except that I was kind of taking “spicy” to literally and thought something sweet might cut the spice a little. Turns out the “spicy” was more a suggestion but it all worked out in the end. I am quite sure I am not the first to do this. In fact, I know that a local restaurant offers a burger with peanut butter and jelly, which I have never tried, but have thought about. Anyway, if you are feeling adventurous, I recommend it.

Oh, and you know what else has been tasty lately? Fruit. I am not typically a big fruit eater (that sounds like something you get called on the playground “FRUIT EATER! FRUIT EATER!”). I like fruit, quite a lot, in fact, but I have always been more of a veggie girl. And I also don’t much care for fruit that has been sweetened, like, in a cake or something. I like it plain. But the other day for no reason at all, I sprinkled some coarse, organic, washed cane sugar on a peach. It was good. The little bit of crunch was lovely and it was only a very little bit of sugar so it was less about the sweet and more about the crunch. Don’t let it sit and break down. Sprinkle the sugar just before you eat it. Same thing when you drizzle figs with honey. East ASAP or else they just make a sickly sweet sauce out of the sugar/honey and the fruit juices.

Um…so, that’s all. Just…ate lunch and it was good so I thought I’d tell you.
