Also, Low, has a post on her page about guessing what kind of fruit she is and tagged me so I'm going to try.

Like this fruit, I have a sweet exterior and sometimes can have a tart interior (so you have to take a second bite) but it's mostly sweet as well. This fruit comes from Asia but is grown in warmer climates in the States so like me, it thrives in good hot weather. Like this fruit, which can be eaten but also used as a plant, I am very versatile and adaptable. Also, this fruit can be eaten whole, and used to make marmalades, jams, chutneys, in fruit salads, and they are available as candy. So like this fruit, I am very diverse and interested in many different things. Finally, this fruit has lots of nutritional value - it is cholesterol, sodium and fat free, contains vitamins A and C and fiber, and has traces of iron and calcium. In other words, very much like this fruit, I am oh so good for you...LOL. This fruit is attractive (as a plant) and delicious...just like me. WHAT FRUIT AM I?

Hint: I am not an orange!

In honor of all my Muslim friends and family.....Happy Eid Al Fitr. Save some goat meat for me!!!!!

DiAmOnD hawk said...

ive been hearing a bit about this ofada rice...what is it exactly?

cereal w/milk? are you lactose intolerant...just wondering...i do milk but VERY VERY little...ppl think it's weird..it's like for every cup of cereal i use 1/4 cup of 1%milk

are you a Grape... that's the only think i can think of..but i dont think it's really grown in Asia but it seems to fit everything else.

Ms. May said...

@ zaiprinesa: I have a Nora Roberts collection to rival even her. I've read almost all, if not all of her books. Some of the JD Robb ones too but I'm not into them as much. I'm just a sucker for romance and love and all that sappy stuff. LOL. The "HIM" shall be revealed soon enough. And nope...not a strawberry.

@ biodun: Ofada is the bomb. Hits the spot every time. I'll be on the lookout for your fruit tag.

@ toyine: nope...not a mango.

@ low: you're not right boo. sorry! LOL.

@ daddy's girl: thx. yep, those musicals just remind me of a certain time in my life. i checked yours out too. good one.

@ olawunmi: LOL. I don't drink milk....so I don't eat cereal really except every once in a while i'll eat it dry. If it would taste good with coke, i prob would, the way i'm addicted to the stuff but i'm working on that. Mehn...Ofada don't play. I can almost taste it right now. Another reason i'm looking forward to going home in December. And thank you so much for the love o....as in, we're nowhere near your level but we're honored you even stop by.

@ diamond: Girl, next time you land in Naija, please ask someone to get you some Ofada/Designer Rice/Iresi Elewe....depending on who you ask. It's a certain type of rice, serve with deep fried stew, small pieces of meat/fish/other assorted protein wrapped in leaves. The best thing EVER!!!!! Very hood, but you know it's the hood joints that are the best. I just don't drink milk...not that I'm lactose intolerant cos I eat other dairy. I stopped drinking it when I was 5. My mom says I put my foot down...AT AGE 5! LOL. Nope...not a grape.

Calabar Gal said...
