So today I was trying hard to actually write a SLICE.  Well, I think I accomplished this slice about fruit!  As I was making dinner, I began slicing some beautiful red sweet strawberries.  I could smell them as I cut them up into tiny pieces for our salad.  I was reminded about the time I was 11 and we went to Michigan and picked our own strawberries.  Running through the fields I remember the red juice on my fingers.  Yummy!  Couldn’t wait to go home and wash those babies up.  Then, I began slicing a ripened cantaloupe that was sitting on my countertop for a few days.  I just love the sweet taste of orange cantaloupe.  As I sliced away, I decided to put some in a container for lunch tomorrow.   Lastly, I began thinking about what I will have for breakfast tomorrow.  Guess what came to my mind.  Yes, a yellow banana.  Bananas are my favorite at breakfast time ever since I was little.  I will never forget my mom cutting up the bananas and putting them in my bowl of frosted flake cereal.   What great memories this slice has brought out!

  1. Your description of the strawberries, “beautiful red sweet…” Started to make my mouth water. I felt as if I could taste them. Then the cantaloupe…dang it I want a bowl of fruit now! 🙂 Fun to connect an everyday task of cutting fruit to old memories. 🙂

  2. Slicing in your mind while slicing your fruit. I get that! Cool to think about childhood memories of picking strawberries and mom putting fruit in your cereal as a child. I believe food has a strong connection to our lives in so many ways and your slice really showed that!

  3. I love the slices of fruit and slice of life connection! I wish I had strawberries in my lunch now. So many memories connected to fruits and smells. My grandmother was an avid banana eater and I hated them until last year. I like to toast her every time I eat one now. Great slice!
