Vitamin C

We were given a box of oranges last week.  Delicious, juicy, and straight off a Florida tree.  The children were hesitant at first.  "Why do they have spots?", "They look dirty", "Oranges aren't supposed to have stems", etc.  "Fine", I told them, "you don't have to eat any".  Of course the minute I cut one open the smell changed their minds and they were grabbing for slices.

Our box is almost empty.  I know the minute I have to start buying "Lil' Cuties" again they're going to realize just how much they've been missing.  We may just have to plan a road trip to get some of our own Florida citrus soon. I hear the Grapefruit is even better.


  1. My grandaddy used to ship us a bushel of Florida oranges every Christmas and I look forward to it all year. I so prefer FL to CA! Now my dad has taken over and sent us some this year---I only have about 4 left---see how I savor them!?! :) I'm jealous of your easy access to FL citrus!

    1. That sounds delicious. What a fantastic tradition. Now your girls will have the same memory of their grandpa.
