Fruit


Our fruit bowl is empty of anything edible. It must be shopping day. One apple is plastic. The other is a plastic pull apart and reassemble puzzle. The puzzle takes some time, but it is quite doable. I do not know what they other things are, the yellowish things. I have never asked. Maybe preserved lemons, or dried lemons?

  1. Hello Andrew:
    Now this really is a little depressing! The puzzle, yes, but the plastic apple, definitely no!

    We hope that a trip to the market will rectify this situation. Kellemes hétvégét!

  2. A fruit bowl should always be filled with fresh, delicious fruit. That way, when you can't be bothered cooking straight away, you can honestly say "the fruit is delicious; help yourself".

  3. JayLa, we must have inherited from somewhere or someone. It is not something we would buy. The el cheapo Asian owned fruit and vegetable green grocer will remedy the empty fruit bowl.

    Hels, love your thinking.

  4. I wonder if the lemons started off fresh and have now become preserved (or fossilised)?

  5. Plastic fruit? I remember being a housekeeper for a few months, doing the cleaning and the ironing. one time I'd finished polishing the dining tables and noticed the bowl of apples, the fruit was looking dull, having just been bought and dumped in the bowl, so I got a clean cloth and shined them. The next day the lady of the house told me her son wasn't sure if he could eat one because they were so shiny he thought they were painted wood or ceramic. I still shine my apples, they look ore inviting that way. The dried up little yellow things are lemons.

  6. AdRad, I must ask. I am curious now. I have despatched R to the shops to fill the fruit bowl while I get ready for work.

    Thanks for confirming the lemons River. Reminds me how shiny the apples in Japan were. How can they afford the labour cost to do that, I don't know.

  7. Definitely lemons, I've seen their dried up rellies visiting in my fruit bowl on occasion! Show us this bowl again Andrew when it is vibrantly filled with fresh fruit and minus the plastic..plastic???
