CSA Veggies and An Award

On Friday, we got a beautiful box of CSA veggies.

So here is an embarrassing bit of information. A few weeks ago, we got grapes in our CSA box. I was very excited to try them and washed them right away. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed when I realized that they had lots of seeds. I stuck them into the fridge and forgot about them. Fortunately, though, I ended up using them in some green juice and it tasted amazing.

Yesterday, hubby tried the grapes in the new box and had the same reaction to the seeds I had a few weeks ago. I know that grapes having seeds is normal and in fact more natural as it is less likely that the plants were manipulated in a strange way. Yet, it takes extra time to take the seeds out, and this is where the embarrassment kicks in because in reality, it’s really not that big a deal. So I’m determined to eat the grapes soon!

Now on to the award. Marion from Affection for Fitness awarded me with the Liebster Blog award.


Thanks, Marion! Marion and I are about the same age and have lots of other things in common as well. She is really into fitness, and recently started a More Fruits and Veggies 30 Day Challenge. She has been posting lots of fruits and veggie info, and I have learned a lot. Plus, she loves jokes, and I often laugh when I visit her site. Again, thanks for the award Marion!

Questions: Do you mind seeds in grapes? What do you do with seeds in grapes? Eat them? Cut the grapes in half and take the seeds out? Juice the grapes? What have you been up to this weekend? We had a couple birthday celebrations, but more on those later.

Be well,
