Good morning!! It’s Friday. Woohoo! I have a super exciting weekend going on. So. Super. Exciting.
You will not believe what I get to do today. In a previous post, I mentioned I do a lot of volunteer work. One of the organizations I help out is Make A Wish. It’s an organization that grants wishes to kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Basically, it tries to put some happiness in an otherwise not very cool situation. I am a wish granter and it is my favourite volunteer gig so far =) It’s pure awesome helping make someone happy. And today, I get to cheer on Batkid!! Check it out. I’m pretty pumped about it.
In other, unrelated news, I have been trying new things lately. Terry and I went to the market last weekend and bought some fun, new things to try.
I always get the same kind of flowers from the market – pink gerbera daisies, but these looked so pretty I couldn’t pass them up. I have no idea what they are. Fresh flowers make me happy =)
We also found this crazy looking lemon:
Doesn’t it look like something out of a horror movie? Alien or something…
Apparently all you use it for is the zest part. I haven’t used it yet, but I’m excited to. It just looks fun to use!
And this isn’t entirely new, but we bought some persimmons. I’m not a huge fan, which is disappointing as it’s big here and you can’t get them in Ontario, but they just aren’t really my thing. But I bought some and thought I would try my hand at drying them out. This was my first attempt at drying fruit out and I was pleased with how simple it is.
They took about 8 hours.
What new foods have you tried lately?
Have a super fantastic weekend!
