Ode to Clementines from Google
How I love your juiciness.
Tiny and compact.
I put you in my purse,
for when I want a snack.
Eight to ten pieces per,
and not so hard to peel.
Though you stain my thumbs orange,
love for you I will always feel.
I know, I’m a nerd. But I thought it was cute…and totally appropriate. Especially for me — I kid you not, in my purse you can find 2 clementines. Right. Now. They travel well and I ate the rest…there were 5 😉
Clementines, the smallest member of the mandarin family, are in season come November and December. Enjoy these 35-calorie, easy-to-peel, seedless, sweet slices of heaven! They’re a nice break from the heavier squashes and potatoes of the winter months, when apples are on their way out and most other fruits are fair at best.
Question: Do you love clementines, too? 😉
Off to Columbus…hopefully in time for my hockey game…and then grocery shopping! Lots of good stuff on the menu this week…watch ouuut!!!
