Deli Pickle in Afternoon Light

Just walked back up Grafton Hill from the Bryant Street Market.  Took the pickle out of the deli paper and bag and set in on a plate. I was just about to cut it up into spears to share it.  And then I looked down.  The sun shining through the back porch door was perfect illumination for the pickle to take on some life.  Perfect amount of juice and crispy when you bite into it. Makes your mouth water.

Crisp, Crunch and Juice

It was sweet pickles when I was small
And I still eat bread and butter ones-
especially homemade.  I put some up
with Carolee in Okanogan one summer.
But this one from the jar in the deli case?

Went nicely with the corned beef and swiss for St Patrick's.

  1. Reminds me of an old song. I can’t remember exactly how it went. Something like ….

    My mother gave me a nickel to buy a pickle,
    I didn’t buy a pickle, I bought some chew gum.
    Chew gum, chew gum, chew gum,
    How I love chew gum.
    I didn’t buy a pickle, I bought some chew gum!

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
