"Don't you two communicate?" asked my daughter in astonishment when she saw my husband unloading bags of fruits from the car. It's because I came home from the grocery store an hour ago clutching bags of produce too.
"Green mangoes, check, Asian pears, check, yellow mangoes, check, nectarines, wow - you guys bought the same kinds of fruits", Izzy taunted.
The funny part is, my husband rarely goes to the grocery on his own unless he goes in with a list of things to buy. However, he has recently become a regular customer of a grocery next to his workplace, a huge Korean market called H-Mart. He discovered the joys of buying fresh fruits, usually on his way home on a Friday night. I totally forgot it was a Friday until he came in to the kitchen with the vibrant colors of the fruits in the bags he was carrying. Somehow we both knew that we did communicate, saying to each other that we still think the same after all these years, and still sharing the fruits of our work. Sounds trite and I may be pushing it too hard huh? But you know it's summer and we both kinda have the same mind set, that the best way to beat the heat is having tons of refreshing fresh fruits. Only now though, we have literally tons of them haha.
Well the fruits didn't go to waste as we went for an impromptu trip to my in laws this weekend. A big fruit basket was greatly appreciated by my mother-in-law. But for now, expect a lot of fruit infused recipes in this blog soon, and yeah we start now!
