Well, believe it or not, I tried my very first pomegranate the other day!
I still remember being in grade school and watching kids eat these at recess and wondering
what they tasted like... flash forward forty + years and I finally made it happen, yes siree, Bob :)
Thank goodness for the internet - I was so intimidated that I needed to watch a YouTube video
on the proper way to cut into this most mysterious fruit. (ps: very messy, no matter how you slice it.)
Upon further research, I've since found out there are tons of pomegranate recipes out there,
and that they can be enjoyed in salads, desserts, appetizers, sauces, relishes,
drinks (as a garnish) and can be frozen.
If you're a regular reader, you already know I'm a huge fan of all things second-hand;
be it VV (Value Village), Goodwill, antique malls, flea-markets, out-and-out junk stores...
It's been a while since I've posted any finds; here are a few recent acquisitions :)
Over the course of this past summer & fall, I was able to pick up all the Harry Potter books
for next to nothing at Goodwill. I'm very close to finishing 'The Order of the Phoenix'
(fifth in the series of seven). All are in amazing condition.
These sit on a wooden 'lazy-susan', very retro and they go in my house perfectly.
I anticipate using this a lot throughout the Christmas season.
I have Christmas oranges in them right now, but they'll soon be great for candies and nuts.
I see I need to dust!
Beautiful pottery & my new butter dish :)
I rescued this purse from a 'junk' store in Creston, BC on our trip to Nelson this fall.
It has an extra long strap; the leather is very thick, buttery soft and smells sweet.
One of my very best finds in a long time.
I love showcasing the great stuff you can get at these places and really encourage everyone
to go once in a while (if you don't already) - who knows what you'll find?
