Inspiration and the Fruit Mug

“I get these insane ideas…”

IMG_0658.JPGI get these insane ideas and sometimes it doesn’t work out, sometimes it’s so good I don’t tell anyone because it’s how I plan on getting rich, and sometimes I forget if I don’t write it down and it’s gone forever.  I created a new tab on my website called, “Inspiration”.  For those times when you just want to look at gorgeous photos of food and also because a lot of the time my recipes are more of an idea than a recipe.

I woke up Thursday morning in Seattle with a craving for fruit.  I had no idea what I was going to make so I made my way to the farmers market to see what was fresh.  I’m that disgusting human being that needs to touch every single fruit to make sure I LOVE it before bringing it home with me.  It’s an intimate thing.  I grabbed a mango and my finger sunk into it and I yelled, “OH MY GOD ITS PERFECT!”  The clerk that was working nodded at me like, “I know right”.  I instantly wanted to turn it into a flower.  When I got home and made the flower I looked at the bowls and was disappointed that my fruit was prettier than all of the china.  My coffee mug on the drying rack looked at me and said, “Maybe I can help?”  Unconventional, but maybe he was onto something.  I threw my combo of tangerines and orange slices into the bottom and placed the flower on top.  I filled in the cracks with RAMBUTAN (not to be confused with lychee, you idiot Kayla) and then chopped up a few pistachios and put them on top.

What I’m getting at… I could say YOU HAVE TO MAKE A BANANA TANGERINE SALAD AND PUT A MANGO AND RAMBUTAN AND PISTACHIOS ON TOP OR ELSE UNSUBSCRIBE… but what I’m trying to say is that you should probably put your fruit in a mug because it will make you feel awesome and happy.
