Food Of The Day: Fresh Raspberries

I'm really going to miss these guys when they're no longer plentiful and relatively inexpensive.

Raspberries with a dollop of fat-free Cool Whip has been my afternoon snack all summer. And, in other news, I seriously could eat a whole container of fat-free Cool Whip in about 10 minutes. Not saying I have, but I could.

Does this mean fat-free Cool Whip is now a trigger food for me? Because, if so, that's one lame trigger food. And Cool Whip isn't even really "food," much like I Can't Believe It's Not Butter is not really butter, but a collection of chemicals that taste like butter. And I can believe it's not butter. But, for 0 Points+, I enjoy it.

Anyway, I stocked up on sale raspberries today and I fear it will be the last hurrah until next summer.

  1. I asked at my farm stand yesterday about raspberries and the farmer said his fields were all but ruined by the rains - there are raspberries there but they are so wet and mushy that they are only fit for making jams or jellies. I also inquired about sign up for next year and he said November 1. Also said early sign ups get a price break. If you are interested, it's really a good deal.
