An Empty Place and Dessert
What a whirlwind! I’ve been really busy trying to get things together at my apartment.
I love the apartment so far and can’t wait for my parents to get here and hang out with me! In the mean time, I was invited to a barbecue this afternoon. I thought about making a pie to bring along, but new apartment means no food, so I had to make due with what I had on hand.
Luckily this site helped me out to use of some of the 8 grapefruits I bought yesterday. Why did I think walking this far and carrying all my groceries was a good idea? Not sure at all.
Well only 1.6 miles total, but definitely an arm workout.
Anyway, I wanted to make something delicious today and grapefruits delivered.
I hope the rest of the group likes it this afternoon. I am also curious about the sustainability of grapefruits. I tried to do a bit of research and found that they are grown in California and Texas. This fruit fails the 100 mile test, in that it’s trucked into where I live. But aside from that, I couldn’t find that much information. Agriculture is definitely not the most sustainable thing, and in fact 60% of emissions that contribute to greenhouse gases come from agriculture. I also came across a great article about sustainability and fruit. Anyway maybe this lack of information is a sign that we could be aided in more research on foods’ sustainability potential.
As much as I love pulled pork and cornbread, I figured I would get in some healthy snacks before throwing in the nutritional towel.
I also chomped down a carrot which happened too fast for pictures.
It’s a beautiful day for a party, and I’m really excited for this afternoon. More later on!
What is your favorite summer dessert?
