Green Grapes

Every time I eat a grape, especially green ones, I think of my mom. In the mid-70s she had an intestional bypass done to facilitate weight loss. See this infomative link about the procedure, and why it is not done anymore. Afterwards there was a list of forbidden foods, some foods that were okay if some modifications were made. One of these involved grapes. She could eat grapes, and loved the green ones. The draw back was, before she could eat them, they had to be peeled. Have you ever peeled a grape? It is not easy. I remember sitting on the front porch, mom on the glider, and my brother and I peeling grapes...
