back from my holiday vacation with a typical what-do-I-have-in-the-fridge-today
lunch: yakiudon, spinach
with mayonnaise, baked Japanese sweet potato,
taiyaki, grapes, and cactus fruit.
OK, the cactus fruit is pretty weird. I saw it in
the farmer's market and figured that, at that price,
I'd give it a try. I was delighted to see that fluorescent-looking
fuchsia inside. Freaky-colored food is cool! But...
well, there's only a tiny bit of flesh between the peel
and the seed-filled core, the seeds are too hard to
chew, and the taste did not impress me at all. You can
eat the seeded part, sort of sucking the flesh out
around the seeds and then spitting them out, or you
can swallow the seeds. Me, I'll pass. Cactus fruit isn't
nifty enough to be worth the trouble, in my opinion.
