Works for me Wednesday: Freaky fruit :)

Looking for fun things to do throughout the summer can wear a mama out. (Well that and trying to do the hundreds of other things we a day :) )

It was during a trip through the produce isle that my family decided on a new summer tradition. They love it so much, I thought we would share!

It was when we saw a round orange, spotted prickly "thing" in the fruit section. They were mesmerised. We have no idea what it was but it looked weird, gross and fun. A irresistible combination to bored children in the grocery.

"Why don't we try it?" I found myself saying.
I got looks of pure joy and disbelief. Alot of jumping and loud talking followed.

Since then we have decided that each week we would try a "weird" fruit or veggie. Nothing is off limits. (We feel downright exotic tapping into a coconut or enjoying a starfruit!)

Not only is shopping just a little more fun but the kids look forward to trying the new treat each week!!

And that totally works for this mama.
