Thursday Thirteen #5

Thirteen Things about Juliadamus

Today - my favourite fruits!

1. Apples
"An apple a day, keeps the doctor away"

2. Bananas
2 bananas, 1 cup of cream, 2 tbs peanut butter(creamy), 2 tbs honey, 1pt crushed ice
put all together in mixer, blend and enjoy your smoothie ;)

3. Oranges and all other kinds of citrus fruits
hmmm, a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning ... delicious

4. Melons - all shapes, all tastes
Cut a cantaloupe-melon in two halfs, scratch out the seeds - it's like a bowl now - put chocolate ice cream in the hole, and poor Baileys on top of it!

5. Cherries
Well, if anythings reminds me of childhood, it's sitting under my grandmas cherry-tree, having cherry pit-spitting-contests with my brother

6. Persimmon
How about some persimmon pudding?

7. Mango
Cut it in small pieces and mix with vanilla-yogurt!

8. Grapes
Serve them with some cheese (real cheese please: italian, swiss, french or from the Netherlands!)

9. Papaya
Make sure to get rid of all those little black seeds, they're extremly bitter!

10. Strawberries, raspberries, ... all berries! and black currant ;)
pure, with sugar, cream or yogurt, as a smoothie or ice cream, I just love them!

11. Pears
I especially like Nashi pears - they are really delicious, somehow sweeter than "normal" pears!

12. Nectarines
I'm addicted, I eat about 3-4 a day during summer! And I prefer them to peaches cause they are not hairy!

13. Cacao
What do you mean - that's no fruit?!? Well at least you can cut all the fruits above in slices and have a wonderful chocolate fondue ;)

Babystepper said...

Those pictures were great. They almost made me want to go eat some fruit, but I think I'll probably end up with ice cream instead.

Great TT!

Lesley said...

Wooooow *staring at the melon one* I like the way you think!

Thank you for stopping by. My daughter adores fruit and you've listed many of her favorites.

I have to admit to not liking watermelon even though I think they are so beautiful to look at.

Thank you for stopping by my TT earlier.

Natalie said...

Great I really want some fruit! :)

tickledpink.nicole said...

Umm! And I LOVE that you've made a decision that chocolate BELONGS in the "Fruit Family!" I'm going to get myself some now.....

Julia said...

kats: it's a sin, but it's worth it, believe me! and I'm not only talking about the smoothie ;)

pussreboots: well, maybe you would give the infamous vodka-melon a try? :)

natalie: well then, why are you not in the litchen already? ;)

Julia said... for me chocolate belongs in every food family ;) isn't it great to be a choc-a-holic?

kwrenb said...

You've reminded me to make one of my favorites - frozen grapes.
They never freeze solid, more like the texture of sherbert.

Sleeping Mommy said...

My favorites are apples bananas and strawberries!

Thanks for visiting my TT today!

Library Lady said...

Chocolate is THE perfect food and fits in all parts of the food pyramid!
I love those little purple plums folks call Italian prunes. My mom used to put them in my school lunches--they always let me know fall is arriving.

Infinity Goods said...

I'm salivating! These are good.
Happy Thursday.

Julia said...

kwernb: hm, sounds good, I'll try this! Thx for stopping by!

sleeping mommy: there's nothing wrong with the classics!

library lady: it's a staple food I say!!!

infinity goods: ;)
