papaya and pasta

New England is basically under water. The rain actually doesn’t bother me — rainy days are always a good excuse for soup and cozy sweats. But I do have to take issue with the crazy winds we’ve been having! It’s nuts, really. Just sitting here, I can feel my house shaking. Umbrellas stood no chance today.

Like I said, today called for soup and warm beverages. So that’s what I consumed for most of the day.

Yesterday at Whole Foods, I decided to try a new fruit: papaya. This might be old news to most, but I’ve never tried the pinky/redy (orangy?) fruit.

At first, I was undecided as to whether or not I liked the texture and after taste. But, it’s a new fave for me. πŸ™‚ But, confusion. The nutritional label says 0% for Vitamin C. Really? So, I googled it. Papaya, dried papaya, does too have Vitamin C. I don’t know why the label says that!

PS. One other reason I tried this fruit over the several other options was price. I never knew fig (especially the Turkish Fig) could be so expensive!

Dinner was pasta.

I used whole wheat penne pasta, chopped up plum tomatoes, and Amy’s light Honey Mustard salad dressing. It was really delicious! Ignore my falling apart bowls. I just say they have a lot of character. πŸ˜‰

Tomorrow’s a big day as far as school work is concerned. I’m totally getting fascinated (in my typical history buff fashion) by my Haudenosaunee research thesis that FINALLY got approval from my professor! Woop! πŸ˜‰

    Strange how there is no vitamin C listed! Maybe the serving size is super small, and the amount of vitamin C is just too minimal to be listed?

    I’ve never tried dried papaya, but I love dried fruit! πŸ˜€
