Hello, Fresh Figs...Nice to meet you!

I was introduced to fresh figs today.  How have I never had a fresh fig before today??  Where have they been all my life?  Before today the only figs I had ever had were in Fig Newtons.........sad face.

They are DELICIOUS. Subtly sweet, with a sugary texture that melts in your mouth.

Plus I have a special place in my heart for >this< Brett Dennen song.  If you aren't familiar with Dennen you should check him out - you'll be happy you did AND you'll have a new favorite song about figs! I mean come on, after hearing that song, how much better did your already magical day get?

p.s. I love me some  Grooveshark...sure it might be a dated version of this newfangled Spoh-ti-o-ti-doublicious---ify, but you don't need an invite! BAM! :)

p.s.s. That Brett Dennen song has been on my list of favorites for years despite the fact that I had no idea what a fig looked like or tasted like (I know....pathetic...and I call myself a foodie...who am I kidding?).  Which means if you didn't listen to the song yet...you probably should.  You won't regret it - pinky promise!

Happy Weekend!!!
