Fresh Peaches and Apricots

Aloha Everyone,

When it comes to fresh fruits, my eyes are always much bigger than my appetite. Today we wanted to explore Brigham City. As we were driving down the Main Street, we saw signs advertising fresh local peaches, apricots, watermelons and cantaloupes. Peaches were being sold at $9.00 per "lid".

Apricot on the other hand was being sold by crate. When I told the proprietor that I only wanted a few fruits each, she sold them to me by the pound.

Here I am choosing tiny potato for our lunch. The only disappointment came when we were settling our bill and the proprietor told me that the potato we purchased are from California, and that the Rainier cherries, of course, were from Washington.

Brigham City has a population of approximately 18,000 people based on 2010 census. It is a city in Box Elder County. It has an orderly Main Street where commerce seems prosperous. However, once we drove a couple of streets away from the city center. houses are smaller with children's toys strewn in the browning front lawn and the working class neighborhoods gave appearance of deferred maintenance.

For lunch, we had fresh broccoli with blue cheese dressing as our appetizer followed by boiled potato, Swiss cheese and Rainier Cherries as our main dish and Greek yogurt for dessert.

Here is a picture of our main course:
