My little sister makes a killer cheesecake that's cooler than James Bond in a tux. She can spew out all kind of culinary terms as fast as my little brother can quote sports figures. So it was no surprise when she said she would be attending culinary school in the fall. One of the perks of having a sister who's a serious foodie is that I get to borrow all of her cool cookbooks. I was browsing through one of them this morning and then sometime odd occured...I felt like I was looking at something off the SciFi Channel. Some fruits look really strange, almost alien. Here are a few of God's interesting little creations: 1. Passion Fruit - Have you seen the inside of one of these? It looks like something you would serve to little green men from Mars. 2. Pomegranates - I know they're supposed to be super healthy for you but why does it look like at any given moment one of those pods will awaken and bite the tip of your tongue off. 3. Papaya - Sure these are great in smoothies but what would happen if legs sprouted out of those tiny black seeds? Umm..yuck. 4. White peaches - friendly peaches by day, blood suckers by night. And don't even get me started on vegetables...that's a whole other weird world .
