I stopped at the grocery to get a couple random items, and I was so excited to see bags of California navel oranges!
Of course I grabbed a bag.
I adore CA Navels, I think they are my favorite fruit! I miss eating oranges in the summer, by November/December, I’m struggling through “citrus withdrawals” – I count the days until they are in season again!
Whoo hoooooo! I think they seem early this year, but I won’t complain!
I went to Whole Foods yesterday, and thankfully I found California Navel oranges! Oh joy! I have been craving them for so long, and was so happy to see a box of them for $1.69 a pound. I probably would have paid $5 a pound, well, maybe not!
I also found some white grapefruit from Florida at .99/lb so I bought a couple of those too.
I peeled and ate one last night. The peel was thin, but oh it was sweet as ever! Very juicy! Glorious! I only bought four oranges, and now I think I should have grabbed more. Oh well, I can always stop at the grocery store again. I really missed oranges all these months! Trying to be seasonal has its price!
UPDATE 2010-12-10: Went to Whole Foods and found the Cara Cara oranges are now available. Yippee. I grabbed a bunch!
