It’s that time of year again when Florida’s Honeybell Oranges are in season. My Mom and Dad send my family a big order every year, we can’t get enough of the best oranges you will ever taste. They have a short picking season, normally about 10 days so you have to have your order in to assure you get a supply. I have never seen these for sale in a store but my Mom has a tree growing in her back yard and that’s how we discovered them. I think hubby stripped the tree of every orange the last time we were there. If you have a chance to order I highly recommend doing so, they are so juicy and delicious they even provide bibs with the order.
I have been so thankful to have fresh oranges this time of year with all the snow, dark days, and cold weather. For some reason an orange slice just brings a little sunshine to my day and often times several times a day, (I just can’t get enough of them.) I remember when I was a kid we has straw like contraptions that you could stick into a whole orange and drink it like a juice box. If I had to guess I would say they were made by Tupperware but I’m not for sure of that. Do any of you remember those? I haven’t seen them in years but these oranges would be perfect for those straw thingamajigs. I will have to be on the lookout now for some, funny the memories that come back to you at times. I’m not sure Tupperware even exists anymore, I haven’t been invited to a party in forever.
These oranges also have set well on my stomach, I fell on the ice about 10 days ago and because I took so much ibuprofen my appetite was nonexistent. For some reason an orange tasted good and It was actually something I wanted to eat. I never knew ibuprofen could work like an appetite suppressant, maybe I will loose some weight in the process, wouldn’t that be a benefit from it all?
