What I miss about Australia
I miss the fruit.
I miss being able to get a good rockmelon and know that it is a good rockmelon rather than wondering whether I should buy one from Pac n' Save or three. Two weeks ago I discovered a rockmelon that looked like it might be alright in a bunch of them that were striped. This one was not striped. It looked like a Sydney rockmelon, albeit a bit smaller. So I took the risk (again, I've thrown out countless rockmelons at $6 each because they were crap), and OMG it was actually alright. Not as good as what I'd buy in Sydney, but acceptable.
Last week I looked carefully at the rockmelons and discovered that the things go from stripy to not stripy, so I chose the least stripy of the lot. Pure bliss. I went a little crazy on Thursday and ate half of it rather than the quarter a day I'd been doling out. No rockmelon for me on Friday, but oh it was worth it on Thursday.
Supermarket day tomorrow. Dare I hope that my luck will continue? Should I risk three rockmelons?
I'm not even going to talk about the organic seedless sultana grapes or the lychees that come out in the begining of December .. sob.
