*Note guilty expression at being caught in the act.

Lemon Plum

I was at the grocery store today and what did my wandering eyes behold but a Fruit called "Lemon Plum".
According to the sticker they are imported from Chile.
I was so intrigued by its look and teardrop shape that I bought some to taste test.

Cut appearance - A+ (Looks like a heart, nice touch Chile)
Taste - C+ (Wha Happened?)
Sadly the Lemon Plum was in no way the wildly exotic taste sensation I was hoping for.
It wasn't bad, it just tasted like a slightly more mellow citrusy plum.
Note - Just like any plum you really have to wait until it is ripe otherwise it is tart city.

Fish Bowl Friday

If you are one of the 3 people who read this blog you may be wondering what the heck is Fish Bowl Friday? Well here it is, in a nut shell Fish Bowl Friday is a weekly solution to a flaw in my rampagious imagination. I find when working on any art project my mind tends to wander and other ideas pop up. Unfortunately my habit is either to drop what I'm doing and start the new project or write it down on a scrap of paper that later gets lost. Soooo enter my solution Fish Bowl Fridays.
Now every time I get an idea I write it down on a slip of note card, fold it and drop it in the bowl.

Every Friday I shake the bowl, pull an idea out of the mix and finish it that night!
Bye Bye artistic guilt and hello completed projects!

Happy Almost Valentines

This scene from the Jerk always gets me. What a catchy tune, the ukelele makes it even better.
