Last nite I was blog hopping and came across the blog Ms. Bake-It. Tracy lives in Florida and posted about a pineapple head that her son planted in 2007. You can read that post here. All these years later, they were finally enjoying their first homegrown pineapple.
It reminded me of all the fresh fruit we enjoyed while we were in Sri Lanka in February.
Quite ironically, my husband came home from work today lugging in four boxes. And look what was inside ...
Coconuts (these are used mainly for the milk) ...
Papaya and butter fruit (a/k/a avocado).
I didn't know what this was but Rambutan has to be harvested with the fruit still attached to the branch.
I had the kids pull them all off and we got two bowls full. They now need to be stored in a dry, cool place.
And we will have fresh pineapple for dessert tonite.
All this fruit was sent by a Sri Lankan business man we met while there. He delivers Sri Lankan fruit and newspapers to Kuwait every day and had this delivered to my husband's office.
I think I'll go cut some more pineapple.
Hope your day is filled with many sweet surprises. Peace & blessings, Tammy
