On The Hunt for Letter "S"....

Yesterday my wife and myself were back at the supermarket doing our fruit and veggie shopping but also on the hunt for the @alphabethunt contest run by @barbara-orenya and this week begins the hunt for letter "S" so follow us down the aisles and see what we can find starting with the letter "S" honestly this reminds me of the little games we use to play as kids , i spy with my little eye i am sure we have all played this game at some stage of our childhood life anyway lets move on.


Let's start of with these little baby yellow squash one little cute squash used in many recipes in roast dinners with carrots and potatoes , garlic roasted baby squash with herbs and even babies love mashed up squash soup. This little yellow baby squash is seriously a nutritional power packed veggie and is has a great mineral that helps to boost your bone strength.

The Sapo Melon originating in Spain also known as the Santa Claus melon is different on the outside and the inside to a Rockmelon it looks old and wriggle with a green , yellow look on the outside and creamy yellow flesh on the inside and is much sweeter then a Rockmelon. Also rich in vitamins and very rich in potassium which is good for your heart.
