These are the ones that most Florida orange juice
As I cut into the first one...Mmm...
I was transported back in time...
Isn't it funny how certain smells can just bring back a
virtual flood of memories?
When I was a child, my Mama Rose, my Mom's mother,
lived in a part of Orlando called Oak Ridge. She had
oranges trees in her side yard, and when we visited,
it was the sheer delight of us 6 kids to grab the pole
picker and snag some of this amazing Florida gold!
We'd just hang out on the back patio or front porch
and enjoy these little tasty
sensations and the sticky hands that went with them!!
OH, the carefree days of my childhood, AND...
OH, THE JUICY GOODNESS OF IT ALL!!!
So fresh, plump and YUMMY...we would take
bags of them back home to Miami sometimes
and enjoy freshly squeezed orange
juice for a little while.
There truly is nothing like a cup of fresh squeezed
Florida orange juice, well except maybe....
the joyful memories just the very smell of the oranges
bring back for this sunshine gal!
Have a sunshiney weekend, sweeties!!
You all are rays of sunshine to me!!
Hugs and Joy,
