Cantaloupes mainly hit the marketplace close to April. And they peak in the summer months of June through September. A few days ago, I was fortunate to garner one of these specimens. Took it home and decided to leave it on the counter for a few days.
Lo and behold, when I entered my kitchen, a fragrant aroma hit my senses. Without a doubt, that was a sure sign that my fruit was ready for consumption. I placed same in the refrigerator for chilling for a few hours.
Later on, I chopped the golden fruit in halves and just as I thought, it was super ripe and ready for my palate. Moreover, on a taste of a slice, I’m happy to report that it was very sweet and juicy. Decided to cut up a portion and paired it with finely chopped ginger root. With the addition of a pint of cool water and a squeeze of lemon, I had the perfect and refreshing drink of the day.
I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food.
Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds.
I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones.
I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
