Sketches for Hunt 496

I sketched in the living room on the hassock/footstool in the big book with the Micron 01 and added some colored pencil.
For Scavenger Hunt 496

Sorry about the blurry photo, taken with my old iPhone.
Number 1, gat - this is a substitute, Gene's air pellet gun.  He shoots at the squirrels and crows with little success.  Not that he is a bad shot, the squirrels just jump and run off, the crows know and fly away.  He did get a rat with it!  He has a gat, revolver/pistol, that was his dad's.  I forgot about it.
Number 2, drink - the V8 Fusion that has become my favorite
Number 3, red and Number 4, blue - hard candies  of unknown flavor and quality.  They were with the little dog I got while in the hospital.  Probably made in China!

Gene usually does our grocery shopping.  I really dislike going to the store, but when I was out the other day with the sketching group, I went and picked up a few things.

I saw this section of exotic fruit ?? at our HEB grocery.  The green ones in the middle are as big as a medium watermelon.  I'm hoping my Thailand friend on the Hunts will advise on use and how to eat.  They look like they are covered with little plastic stems.   Maybe a reader will know??

Have a happy Mother's Day tomorrow.  Hope you see your mom!  Larry is coming tonight and the plan is to have lunch tomorrow with Joanna and Jennie, too.  :)

my first thought was they were durian fruit, but they might not be, but if they are they stink and are even banned in places due to the smell lol probably a jackfruit tho since they are not as spiky as a durian, but I have no idea how you eat one

Jo Castillo said...

Yep, Jennifer they appear to be Jackfruit. The durian are very stinky according to wikipedia. There is a Jackfruit Company that uses unripe ones and makes it up in as substitute meat, like BBQ I read. Ai in Thailand says they are sticky inside so they have the vendor slice and put the usable pulp in a carton to take with them. Sort of fruity when ripe. Seems to be a lot of trouble to eat any way you do it.

I'm so jealous of your HEB store.

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, yes, HEB is a really nice store. We have so many choices and more and more ready to eat things. I got a meat loaf with mashed potatoes last week in an aluminum casserole, just heated for 20 minutes. Also a salad. Dinner for two nights with no fuss. Not as good as my mom made but definitely passable for the two of us. I miss the store when we travel. I am amazed at the complaints I hear walking around the store. I can even get Sadie's Salsa from the Albuquerque restaurant! We are such a spoiled generation!!

Now you are just rubbing it in!

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, we will bring some Sadie's when we come up! They must make tons of it now. Wow!
