Show & Tell

We made pet rocks.

We had Christmas parades.

We built solar systems out of styrofoam balls.

But we NEVER had Show and Tell when I was in school.

Clearly this is my chance to get back that time where I longed to share my latest in the Barbie collection, the Indian money I found on the playground, or the puppy I taught to sit, shake, and rollover.

So without further adieu, I present you with…

Things that make Heather squeal (aka what I bought in Atlanta):

Buford Farmer's Market Loot

My collection of goodies from Buford’s Highway Farmers Market!

Lupini Beans – they remind me of butter beans only with a bit of bitter/tartness to them…and they have FOURTEEN grams of protein per 1/2 cup serving!

Eggfruit – Laura said it tasted like vanilla custard…NO WAY I was leaving there without it!

Culinary Lavendar – Hmm, perhaps there will be some pancakes inspired by a certain vegan scone?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Liquid Smoke in APPLE FLAVOR – need I say more?

Passionfruit – My very FIRST one!

Yali Pears – so crisp, so sweet, and so juicy that I made a mess out of my scrub top at work!

TWO YEAR aged Gouda – they had samples…and those samples WORKED! Oh my god, weak in the knees!!!

Teeny tiny itty bitty tittiesย patty pans – Oops, did I say that? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dried persimmons – HELLO, persimmons are my favorite fruit…how could I turn this down?

Oat Fit Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal – I LOVE the cinnamon roll flavor so when I spotted these, I just had to get them…now I can’t decide which flavor I like more especially after this:

I kid you not!

I tried the passionfruit yesterday…it was definitely more tart than I thought it would be but in a good way!

PassionfruitA little stevia and some Cho and I was good to go!

Hee hee, I made a rhyme! ๐Ÿ˜‰

While I was pleasantly surprised with my passionfruit purchase, the REAL treat was this beauty:


Behold the all mighty eggfruit!

Never heard of it before? Don’t worry, I hadn’t either…that’s why I took plenty of pictures to share with the class you guys!

EggfruitThe peel is really thin, but bitter-tasting so I had to work like crazy do my best to scrape the flesh out with a spoon. The texture is like an overripe avocado but the taste? The taste is like SWEET pumpkin pie!


A bowl full of pie…


Or a pile of pooย of chocolate pudding! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am seriously in love! Look out persimmon, you have some competition!

But there are OTHER things I found in Atlanta besides a carload of food…

My very first trip to IKEA definitely proved sucessful!


After TWO YEARS of looking for a modern looking dresser in WHITE that did not come with Disney princess decals, I finally found the ONE!ย I’m so excited for the man-friend to help me put it together this weekend!

Well, that is if he can forgive me for chasing him around the store with this:

DSC_0074Seriously, you guys, I have wanted one of these since my first REAL art class in middle school!

The man-friend says he’s creepy…


I say he’s got style…he’s got grace…and his name shall be…BOB! ๐Ÿ˜‰

But Bob’s not the only thing I didn’t know I HAD to have…

DSC_0082Yay for foodprops!

AND a handy-dandy milk frother just like Kat’s! Mmm, chai lattes!

Oh and I also picked up this awesome bamboo salad bowl…


Aka Bob’s swimming pool!

Yeah, I’ve been having a bit too much fun with this! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Did you have Show & Tell at your school?

What’s your favorite exotic fruit?
