Horned melon taste tested

Sunday, November 02, 2008


Yuck Yuck Yuck. Not for me. I tried to eat a piece of the horned melon. I got it in my mouth and could tell what it tasted like but spit it out. Could not swallow it.Too slimy like.The insides are all seeds and a gelatin type stuff.Did have a little lemony taste. Smelled a little like cucumber before I put a little in mouth.

    You are a brave woman. I'm not sure I could have put that in my mouth! Where in the world did you find that strange looking fruit?

I rewarded myself at Overstock.com

Sunday, November 02, 2008

I discovered the web site Overstock.com and ordered myself a new set of pots and pans.Plus 2 new stick free skillets. a small and large one. Stuff is so cheap there. The reviews were good so I hope I am happy when I get them. I haven't bought anything for myself in quite awhile.
Then I ordered my gifts from hubby when I lose another 20 #.He will hold on to them until I earn them.I ordered 2 books and the DVD Rocky Horror Picture show ( Your fault Debbie). Now I can't wait to lose the next 20 pounds.
I have been wearing my wedding rings for the last 2 days.I haven't worn them in months and then only rarely when hands weren't swollen. I did just now take them off but I will put them back on.
Hubby was well enough to go bowling today but came home whipped.He went straight to bed.
It is starting to rain here and we need it.The 2 yellow hibiscus Bill bought me have died.He will have to order new ones.Our sprinkler system isn't working and that is not good.
I am going to make a small batch of candy corn popcorn later.I got recipe out of newspaper.It will be first sweets in many weeks. I have several pieces of a fantastic fruit cake my sister made in freezer and I have not touched it.I may have one piece at Thanksgiving.
The rain has already stopped.I hope that isn't all we get.
I added some new pictures of me in the gallery. I can see a change in my face but not much anywhere else. It will start showing more when I lose more.

    I ordered books last Christmas from Overstock.com and thought it was pretty cheap. I'll be ordering from there again in a few weeks.

Candy corn popcorn? If it's good I'll need the recipe. emoticon I need a little snack every so often.

Congrats on wearing your rings again!! Mine are getting a little loose but I can still wear them without a problem. Keep up the good work!

Horned Melon

Saturday, November 01, 2008


Kiwano Horned Melon - is a member of the cucumber family and not of the kiwi family. Looks like an oval melon with horns and is very decorative. Picked green, the kiwano horned melon tastes like a mix of lemon and banana. It is a tropical fruit so it cannot be stored in the refrigerator.
Once grown only in New Zealand, Kiwano Melons are now grown in California as well. Consumers are drawn to these intriguing, yet versatile tropical fruits whose look easily captures attention. The spiky, orange colored shells of Kiwano Melons encase a soft, succulent bright green flesh. Kiwano Melons are mild in flavor and similar in taste to juicy, seed-filled cucumbers. Once peeled, Kiwano Melons can be tossed in fresh fruit salads or served as a garnish with roasted meats.
Selection & Storage: Ripe Horned Melons will have a bright orange shell. Avoid any bruising or soft spots. No need to refrigerate. The seeds are edible. Kiwano Melon shells can be used as unique servings bowls for soups, sorbets and desserts.

    i tried to eat one about a year ago. to me, it didn't have a taste at all. there wasn't any flesh in mine, just seeds. i tried a dragon fruit, too. couldn't taste it either. maybe it's just me?

Got my reward today

Saturday, November 01, 2008


The guy above likes to roam around back yard. He was too fast to get a good picture.
Hubby bought me two books for losing 40#. He got me The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King and Secret Lives of Bees by Sue Kidd.
I was hoping to look around Walmart today but hubby started feeling light headed so had to rush out. I did get a bigger pot to make my soup in and new measuring spoons. I'm not real happy with pot but will try it out.
I did treat myself to a small fat free bag of chips. So that takes care of that craving for a few weeks.
I bought a new fruit today called horned melon.Strange looking thing.Have no idea even how to eat it.But it looked interesting.Will see if I can find calorie count for it. I have been trying new foods every once in awhile. Will let you know how this thing taste.It is about double the size of lemon with spikes all over it

  


Reached a new goal

Friday, October 31, 2008


I am a very happy person this morning. I lost 5# today and that gives me a total loss of 40.4# . emoticon I can add 5 more ornaments to my Christmas Challenge tree.
I just called hubby and told him I hoped he didn't spend all his money on his old truck.. emoticon(He has a 66 chevy pick-up) He has to make a trip to Books a Million to buy me 2 books.
I am just so thrilled. Losing 40# is a big deal. I still have tons to go but this is a good start. What I am doing is working so I will stick with it.Counting calories is time consuming but worth it.Not going out to eat has been worth it to. I didn't measure when I first started but did shortly after and have lost 6 inches so far.Not a lot but again it is a start.
It is a beautiful day today and the neighborhood will be full of kids tonight. I feel a little bad that I am not giving out candy this year. First time but It is necessary for me.My kids have been gone for almost 20 years and I have still gave out candy.So I think skipping one year will be ok.
All of you with kids have a great time.I will miss seeing all the cute kids.
