forbidden fruit | Chantilly

forbidden fruit

i saw that pomegranates were $2 at trader joes the other day, so i thought "hey why not?"

this is first time in years i've had one. mostly my lingering memories of this fruit involve one of my former roommates, who would keep them in the fridge for way too long, and its smell would eventually taint the other food (pomegranate tuna helper anyone?)

but whatevesss. pomegranates are all healthy and stuff. here's how i ate mine for breakfast.


...and here lie the demolished pomegranate carcass. gods rest its soul. i don't tend to eat the seeds, but i hear they are good for you. do you eat the seeds?


so yeah! in other news, i decided to start reading the game of thrones books. super happy about that. i forget how entertaining books can be- a lot better than television or movies. even though there's a lot of great tv shows out there right now that i love (breaking bad's coming back!!) with books, you get sucked into a whole world you wish you were a part of. i'm about a quarter of the way through the first book so far :)

hope everyone had a nice weekend! i had a kind of busy/ social one. lots of catching up to do in my google reader :)



  1. What are the game of thrones books about? I'm always looking for recommendations on books!

  2. game of thrones is like a medieval/ fantasy-type series of books. not something i'd typically be interested in... but it's not as cheesy as you'd think. it's a great story, good characters, lots of sex and violence :D i originally got into it because they made it into a tv show on hbo!


  3. WOw that breakfast look delicious!

  4. i love pomegranates, your breakfast looks so yummy :)

  5. I haven't had pomegranate in years! I can't even remember what it tastes like. I do remember not wanting to eat the seeds, hehe.

    Have a fun week, Chantilly! :D
