So the other day I tried something new. Not new in general - just new to me! A new food - A Pomegranate! Now some of you may be laughing - but this is a big deal. I don't usually veer out of my comfort zone when it comes to food. For fruit - I grew up on bananas, oranges, apples, grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew and occasional grapefruit, pineapple or strawberries. That is pretty much it to my fruit experience as a child. Nothing out of the ordinary.
When we had little honey, hubby and I decided we would expand his food repertoire and try new fruits. To most they aren't that exciting - but a new flavor in the mouth is weird ♥
I tried pears (all different colors - red, brown, green and yellow), peaches and apricots (hubby and little honey really like - me not so much), eggplant, kiwi, mango, star fruit (weird but pretty), plums, cherries (again not my favorite - but the boys LOVE them), plus many more I can't remember. But lastly we tried the
♥ But I don't like to try something new and do it WRONG - call me weird if you may...
Well last Sunday at church I noticed on the snack menu that the kids were going to eat pomegranate! What trying something new at church! Again a little weirded out. I couldn't wait until after service to ask little honey what he thought of the new fruit.
When I finally got the chance to ask him what he thought - he liked it! WOW! I was shocked since the past few months have been a little iffy on the food front as to what he will eat. So at my next grocery trip I noticed the pomegranates were on sale and thought I would try. Lucky me the pomegranate growers had made a cute little pamphlet to show you how to cut and wash and eat them! Yeah- nothing could go wrong now!
They aren't my favorite. A little hard - maybe mine wasn't very ripe? But I did like the juice that squirted when you bite into them! Very Fun! I cheated and just bit them and then spit them out! (I felt a little like Madagascar when they drank the salt water and then spit it out!) But fun none the less!
Am I weird? Do you try new things or is this all old news to you?
Please let me know I'm normal today ♥
