Darling, Clementine.

Fact: I would subsist entirely on clementines and coffee, were it feasible.

Really? I knew about the coffee, but not the clementines.

I don't know which looks more beautiful: the clementines or the sunshine.

The sunshine, I think. I actually had to get the shades out for the drive home and it was lovely.

I like clementines as long as they're already peeled for me. I'm real lazy.

ds said...

oh yeah - are they on sale yet? I forgot all about them. I'll be buying a case soon.

Charmi said...

The clementine & sunshine. My house faces north, with all the back windows towards the south. In the winter the sun (when it shines) really streams in.

DS - they're ready! My family is on the third case!

Same here Talia. I'll peel oranges, but clementines are just too little for me. Once I learned that the mandarin oranges in the can were clementines, I had even more reason to not buy or peel them.

Charmi said...

Okay, you women are pitiful! There's nothing easier to peel than a clementine!

Jennifer - repent and step away from the can.

Ryan said...

Charmi is right, peeling a clementine is easier than unwrapping a candy bar.

Press thumb into top - wedge thumb under peel - pull a bit. :)

You see, I need more than one clementine to satiate my orange hunger. I'm not the type of person to just eat half a grapefruit. I need the whole thing and I still want more! I go bananas when they sell those ruby red grapefruits in the 18lb bags for $3.99. Now tell me, how many clementines would I have to peel to equal the large can of mandarin oranges?
I know I know Charmi, I normally stay away from canned goods. Ever since I learned about the chemical leaching into the food. Anyway, I only buy a few canned goods.
