Yep, it’s true. I’ve been indulging in the delights of sunshine and delicious produce like heirloom tomatoes and avocados. Since it’s the middle of winter here and summer there, I couldn’t stop eating salad in the first two days. It’s just made me all the more impatient in waiting for our season to begin.
I also tasted a whole lot of fruit. The tasting stations are so generous at the farmer’s markets over there that you can go early without having had breakfast yet. And that’s saying a lot if you know me.
And I further indulged in something I wish we had over here, Mexican and Tex-Mex food. Well, OK, we sort of have a bit of Tex-Mex…but it’s not the saaaaame! I mean, where are the free tortilla chips and the giant margaritas?
And, lest I seem ungrateful for all the awesome stuff we do have here in Aotearoa, here is a photo of the only (most were “barn raised” at this particular shop, anyway) free range eggs I could find in Wholefoods supermarket. Ready? Wait for iiiiiiiiiiiiit…
I know! They are from New Zealand!! How weird is that?
