Cotton Candy Grapes

Last week, I read on my friends Denny and Reilly’s blog about Cotton Candy grapes.  I can’t begin to tell you excited I was to read about these grapes.  In fact, Denny and Reilly’s mom wrote:

“Now for the few of you who haven’t heard of these (probably our overseas readers) these grapes REALLY do taste like Cotton Candy (or Fairy Floss as it is called in other parts of the world) and the best thing for Mom is they are extremely low in acidity.”

I just knew my mom would love these delectable little morsels so I wrote them on her weekly grocery list.  Well, the first market mom went to they didn’t have a clue as to what they were.  So mom went to another market.  And there they were – I do believe mom said she heard angels singing.  She picked up a bag and they are expensive – around $4.99 a POUND.  So mom muttered something about them needing to be made of fairy dust… I didn’t get that.

She got home with her purchase and had one.  Friends, I can not describe the look and joy that went across mom’s face.  It was priceless regardless of how much these grapes cost.  Yes, they were that good.  Then mom had to get daddy to try them.  And she video taped it for you to view.  Enjoy my friends and if you come across these, you have to try them!

Journey with Friends

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!

Hello friends – how did you do last week?  Can you guess about me?  I so need this spoon with a hole in the middle for my “diet”.  I have to admit that I did have a spoon this week helping me out.  Okay, let me rephrase that.  I had a shovel acting like a spoon helping me to cram in all of the bad choices I made last week.  How’s that for a picture?

I’m stomping my feet today.!  Really, I will.  I have to.  Not only for me but for my husband and my four legged kids.  This week, I will walk more.  I will eat better.  I will live and breathe blowing stress out of my life.

So friends – how was your week?  Do I need to order a bunch of these spoons?
