A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Fresh Produce – 25 August 2006
By Mary T. Hoffman

Among our latest purchases from our favorite farm market are Ginger Gold apples and Roma tomatoes, in addition to fresh corn, sweet red peppers, onions, and cucumbers, which we have been buying and enjoying for several weeks. Around this time of year, we look forward to buying some of our locally grown favorites as they become available – like these apples and tomatoes.

Also recently, we bought a watermelon that turned out to be a variety that we had never eaten before: round, solid green in color, seedless, but with yellow flesh; it appeared to be an “ice box” type. We also bought a delicious, very large cantaloupe. Usually, we use one whole, smaller cantaloupe (peeled, of course) for a smoothie; but this time we cut this large cantaloupe in half, stored the unused portion in the refrigerator, and enjoyed cantaloupe/banana fruit smoothies for two days.

For our cantaloupe/banana and other fruit smoothie recipes with photos, see:
