today i went to pick up some groceries, and i had a list and everything, but as i approached the store i remembered that i wanted to pick up some apples. our co-op has a really good relationship with a local orchard, so every fall the co-op gets bunches of apples from them, and today they had about five different varieties at 99 cents a pound. yay! unfortunately, none of those were honeycrisps, and those were the ones i was specifically thinking about getting, so i had to buy those at a higher rate. anyhow, my usual favorite apple is fuji. they're crisp and sweet, which are my two favorite things. i used to be a nothing-but-granny-smith girl, but then suddenly my tastes tOtally changed, and i couldn't stand the tartness of a granny smith apple. it was weird, but such is life. so now i've been a fuji girl for quite a long time, and i dally in honeycrisps when they come in season.
but today, faced with the 99 cent per pound apples, i decided to be a little daring and pick up a couple more varieties after nabbing a couple of honeycrisps. in honor of my sister, i got one of her favorite–golden delicious–and then for no reason in particular, i also grabbed two cortlands. i have no idea what they even taste like; they just looked adorable and i grabbed them. here's hoping they don't suck!
in other random apple news: as much as i love apples, i much prefer to eat them sliced than as a hand fruit. i'll eat it out of my hand if i have to, but if i'm at home and i have a sharp knife, i always slice them. is that weird?
