Can do it all. And modest to boot.

A little fruity

Today was the first day of school.  Those of you that know me, know that I love my job, however I do have some frustrations with it.  Today, all of those frustrations seemed to be in the forefront for some reason, particularly during volleyball practice.  So after practice, I did what I normally do when I’m angry, and served up 4 baskets of balls, then decided what I was going to do for dinner.  At that point I was torn…after I work out I am in the mood for super healthy food, but when I’m in a mood like that I really want comfort food.  So I wasn’t quite sure what to do.  Luckily for me there is one kind of food that serves both purposes….FRUIT!  I love all fruit, usually just cut up and thrown in a bowl, but sometimes prepared in other forms.  Tonight was just mango and kiwi cut up.  One thing I like about fruit is that it can be for any meal of the day and prepared in a crazy amount of ways.  Cut up raw, baked, grilled, marinated, mashed, juiced….etc.  When I want to splurge a little, I add some whipped cream, or put it over ice cream.  When I want to be a little more fun I soak it in mint infused white wine.  And when you want to get really fun, you can always soak it in straight liquer (one of my favorites :) ).  The point is, fruit is a food that I can always get comfort from, and never have to feel guilty about( except when I get drunk off it, of course), which makes it even more comforting.  So my question to you, my lovely readers, is this:  What is your not-so-guilty guilty pleasure?
