“I get these insane ideas…”
I get these insane ideas and sometimes it doesn’t work out, sometimes it’s so good I don’t tell anyone because it’s how I plan on getting rich, and sometimes I forget if I don’t write it down and it’s gone forever. I created a new tab on my website called, “Inspiration”. For those times when you just want to look at gorgeous photos of food and also because a lot of the time my recipes are more of an idea than a recipe.
I woke up Thursday morning in Seattle with a craving for fruit. I had no idea what I was going to make so I made my way to the farmers market to see what was fresh. I’m that disgusting human being that needs to touch every single fruit to make sure I LOVE it before bringing it home with me. It’s an intimate thing. I grabbed a mango and my finger sunk into it and I yelled, “OH MY GOD ITS PERFECT!” The clerk that was working nodded at me like, “I know right”. I instantly wanted to turn it into a flower. When I got home and made the flower I looked at the bowls and was disappointed that my fruit was prettier than all of the china. My coffee mug on the drying rack looked at me and said, “Maybe I can help?” Unconventional, but maybe he was onto something. I threw my combo of tangerines and orange slices into the bottom and placed the flower on top. I filled in the cracks with RAMBUTAN (not to be confused with lychee, you idiot Kayla) and then chopped up a few pistachios and put them on top.
What I’m getting at… I could say YOU HAVE TO MAKE A BANANA TANGERINE SALAD AND PUT A MANGO AND RAMBUTAN AND PISTACHIOS ON TOP OR ELSE UNSUBSCRIBE… but what I’m trying to say is that you should probably put your fruit in a mug because it will make you feel awesome and happy.
