Yes I couldn't resist...didn't try really! I was at a local supermarket that has quite a good selection of organic fruits and vegetables and spotted these luscious berries. Just having arrived these lovely gems hearkened me, calling me by name...really they were!
I snuck a little closer, just for a peek. I smelled them before I got there...ahhh that yummy berry smell, heavenly! My heart actually leapt at that smell.
As I picked up the little packages they read "USDA certified Organic product of the USA" Well I knew they weren't locally grown but at least they weren't from clear across the world!
Now with the economy the way it is I thought it only right to support something grown right here in country...it is funny what conversations you will have in your head to justify what you want!
Of course these little jewels were outrageously priced but darn it, its Christmas time and sometimes you just have to indulge yourself...it wasn't like I was buying myself diamonds or anything!
Were they as good as freshly picked from the garden berries? Of course not, but somehow eating fresh strawberries and rasberries in the middle of December makes for its own a special kind of sweetness!!!
So the question for today is...If you could indulge in something that is out of season what would it be?
