Yes, I’m writing about grapes. Of the frozen variety.
This may seem like a rather dull and obvious post to those of you that have been stashing grapes in arctic like vessels of your home, namely a freezer, for some time.
But for those of you, who once like myself, are unaware of the brilliant, delicious and dessert-like perfection of a frozen grape, I urge you, de-stem, wash, and promptly stick those grapes in the freezer. Now!
Your world will be revolutionized. Particularly if you are a woman who must suffer through the third trimester of her pregnancy in the heart of summer (THIS GUY!) or a preschooler with a raging fever (it hit a whooping 105! But all is well. Balance and 98.6 degree body cores have been restored to The Universe, namely chez Cart).
Frozen grapes and marathon episodes of Dora The Explorer are how we all survived this weekend. Our four Barred Rock chickens, Sunny’s favorite, are now aptly named Dora, Boots, Swiper and Diego.
During the sweaty summer months, frozen grapes, I dare say, are more refreshing and enjoyable than a popsicle or bowl of ice cream, and, it goes without saying, far healthier. And it truly couldn’t be a more simple endeavor.
