Once again I see I didn't blog yesterday.I really wasn't feeling so great so it just slipped my mine.
I did not sleep well last night so am tired again today.
A friend sent me an email about the saturn or flat peach.So I sent my sweetie on a search for them.He found them at Publix and they were on sale for 4 for $1.00. They tasted pretty good.Not as sweet as a real Georgia peach but none are.But much nicer than regular peach I bought last week which was tasteless. Here is description that was sent to me followed by pics I took
Saturn Peaches, the coolest thing since sliced bread.
SATURN PEACH : These cool looking peaches were originally known as a “Chinese Flat Peach,” and was very popular in China. It’s time to get your 5-a-day by eating 5 donuts a day…Donut Peaches that is. Domestically, there are two main growing regions, California and Washington. Melissa’s is bringing back one of the truly stone fruit treats, the Flat Peach. 20 It has a white flesh, very thin skin and is loaded with sugar and flavor. That’s one of the reasons they are still so expensive. A thin skin makes them tougher to harvest, handle and pack. High sugar content means they ripen very quickly and become too soft to pack. Heh, here’s a peach, when ripe, that you’ll have to roll up your sleeves to eat. The Saturn Peach is also named Peento, Chinese Flat, or Saucer Peach and is deservingly regaining popularity. This white-fleshed variety, originally from China, was first grown in the United States in the 1800s. It was popular for some years directly after World War II. As many new varieties of yellow-fleshed peach gained popularity, this excellent variety was nearly forgotten. Saturn Peach is much flatter in height than traditional peaches, with a slight center depression top and bottom. It has yellow skin, slightly blushed with red. This juicy peach has a superb flavor and is very low in acid and very high in soluble solids, =2 0 with a hint of almonds and a sweet finish. Saturn Peach is excellent for baking, glazing, sautéing in butter and brown sugar, but best of all eaten out of hand. It’s not nearly as messy as other peaches, but it has more flavor. Slice the Peach around the pit, and the peach just pulls apart as you twist it.
And next is my One Touch lid opening.I love this thing. I broke the first one I got by not using it right.It takes a few tries to get where you can work it right.Or it did me. I put a bottle of green tea that I use it on all the time.These caps are on so tight and with my one touch I sit it on top and hit start button.I hold bottle steady and one touch and it opens it so easy. It will open small caps up to large pickle jars.They advertise these things on TV but Wal-mart carries them.If you have arthritis in your hands this is great. I also have the one touch can opener which I also love.
So far today I have done well with my eating. But I was up 3# this week.Because of fluid my weight has been all over the place. But it is a new week.Will try to do better.
My right eye has been bothering me and it looks like I am getting a stye on it.First time since I was a kid.Doesn't hurt but is itchy and annoying. Always something.Hope your weekend has been going well.
I did put some of the chinese beans in my soup yesterday and they didn't taste any different.I am going to cook the remainer by themself for supper and see how they taste. I did measure one and it was 19 inches long.
Ok Have a good evening
