cavaillon melon.

i have written many times of my love for weiser farms (whole foods, santa monica farmers market wed, hollywood market sunday)... they have been feeding my mamas/families potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, beets etc for a long time... and at this time of year we get these incredibly beautiful melons from weiser. there is something about these big, round, robust fruits like squashes in the winter..

we tend to buy them, share their beauty framed in a favorite bowl and then day by day, week by week we watch the bottom rot out and there is this weird, unspoken resistance to getting the dang bread knife and cutting it OPEN!!! lets look at those gorgeous insides & cube it up. i love having it cut up as though someone has been over (a grandma feeling) and cut the fruit...that's the nourishing piece! ready to be eaten whenever.. open up and eat... it's sooooooo good. see you in the kitchenxxx
