The life and times of a man who thinks he is a carrot

Florida, we need to talk… I just want to take a shower. Is that too much to ask?

When life gives you puree, make…. mousse?

I was juicing some apples and carrots, and noticed that some of my plums had unpleasant soft spots. Since I would need to clean the juicer anyway, I decided to remove the pits and feed them through. Rather than any juice flowing out, a purple glob appeared in the spout, but didn’t move. Opening the juicer, I found the area where the juice is held before it flows out filled with a plum puree.

I decided to make it into a mousse, and topped it with whipped cream and cookie pieces. Something is only a failure if you let it be; you learn from it, and salvage what you can. In my case, I got a really nice dessert. :D

As I thought, carrot juice really does need some kind of filler added to it. Maybe apple juice, or just water. This is five carrots put through the juicer, which made maybe a cup of juice. It tastes fantastic, but may be a little strong.

I really should’ve known better than to toss my pants on the bed. Anything that gets left on the bed, particularly clothing or plastic bags, is an instant Cleo magnet.

I really wanted to try the carrots I got at the farmer’s market today, so I made carrot soup for dinner! It’s nice to finally have some normal-sized carrots again; where I shop recently replaced the carrots they normally carried, Fresh 1, with Bolthouse Farms. As you can see, they’re tiny. I may very well be getting carrots from the farmer’s market whenever they’re available, as they’re big, fresh, and unlike the aforementioned brands, they don’t have to be shipped from California.

The soup was excellent, by the way.

Flea Market: The Adventure!

Today I went to the Market of Marion, a huge flea market/farmer’s market just a few miles from where I live. Despite how close it is I haven’t been there in at least five years, and I’ve never gone alone before, but I felt like going out today.

According to the market’s website, it has over 1,100 booths. I’ve always known that it was big, but that seemed like an exaggeration to me. After checking it out again after so long, I can assure you that this number is accurate.

While it’s mostly people selling something specific, like the booth dedicated solely to Sanrio merchandise (so much Hello Kitty!) or the model bathrooms (ever wanted a solid granite shower?), there’s also stuff like the Garage Sale Aisle. This place is a junk enthusiast’s paradise. Onward, to Adventure!
