things i'm loving . . . 'fruitaliciousness'

Greetings all,
So deep into holiday mode, i almost forgot to join in with my regular blog links . . . like
PaisleyJade's Things I'm Loving!!  On a hot balmy heady lazy kind of afternoon, what better than a movie & chowing down on amazing fruit!!
My darling husband has been ordering boxes of deliciousness from My Fruit & having them delivered these Summer holidays.  There are lots of box varieties & he surprises me, this week included mangoes, pears, avocado, pineapple, bananas, oranges, apples, kiwi, rock melon, mmmm.  The fruit is so fresh & saves my poor princess wrists at the markets (carrying fruit weighs a tonne).  Oh it's all small local business too, yay!! 
So my children are gobbling down on the world's largest bowl of grapes . . . 

 & incredible selection of stone fruit . . . 
 The latest delivery was timed perfectly for the weekend & one minute after unpacking the supermarket groceries.  I was talking about The Addams Family to my children a few days ago, they didn't know who they were??!!  Then i found the movie DVD for $9 & they're watching it, jaws open, filling them up with grapes.
 Oh don't you love how Christina Ricci grew up.  I always loved Wednesday Addams (my eldest daughter has a friend called Wednesday, what a fantastic name).  I recently saw Christina interviewed on The Graham Norton Show.  He asked her how she remained so normal, for a child actor (miracle) & she credited her parents - who made her attend the local public high school & she was only allowed to do one movie a year.  She's so beautiful & talented, still a little quirky & dark, certainly a unique style she totally owns. 
So what better way to wrap up the week, with a childhood favourite experience of my own - The Addams Family (even if it is the modern day version) & amazing Summer fruit.  When we were little we used to eat grapes floating on top of the pool water at home, seriously, no one died folks, possibly less chlorine on the fruit than when they wash them today.  Love Posie

Ahhh yes all good fun going on at your place Jennie. I used to love watching the Addams Family too and eating floating grapes, sounds like something my brother and I would have done at home growing up too. Enjoy your weekend. x

Happy weekend.

You are so right, fruit DOES weigh a tonne! I always think this when I'm juggling the pram and Mr4 and about 3 bags loaded with berries and melons and other assorted fruit. What a thoughtful and totally lovely thing for your hubby to do. Nothing beats fresh fruit either, we are so spoilt and lucky in this country with the abundance of fresh fruit and veg on offer. Happy Weekend to you Posie :o) xo

Yum!!! We had the most delicious pineapple last night. It was amazing. YAY ... the girl didn't like it. Fantastic!!! My boy and I were happy not to have to share with her.
Really. Who doesn't like pineapple???

Those fruit boxes look delicious. I must try to source something like that for here in Sydney.

In my mind summer time = fruit time! Our family can't get enough summer fruit! We were in heaven with the tropical fruit every day in Bali and it brought back memories of the fruit we used to eat in Darwin many years ago growing up!
You have teamed it up nicely with the movie! I was just talking aboutthe Adams family too, only I was comparing the front of our house to the front of theirs :-) trying to get some help with the garden!!!! (I may have said something like ...it looks as though the Adams family live here...) Only the kids had no idea what I was talking about .. You have inspired me, I am getting out the movie! Happy week! X

There's NOTHING like a box full of divine, fresh fruit, esp when delivered with love. My mouth is watering.

PaisleyJade said...
