compiled from my personal grimoire

I remember that when I was 8 I had dinner at a friend’s house with both of our families. Her mum put some peanuts and cashews on the table as appetizers. I had never eaten cashews before and they tasted like heaven. I asked my friend what was their name and she was surprised I didn’t know. Then she told me “they’re yummy but each cashew becomes 2 centimeters on your butt” and laughed. Then I laughed as well and ate on, but “cashew” became a bad word in my head. Cash=fat. It was the first and last time I had cashews.

This morning I ate cashews (and an apple). No, my butt is not larger. No, it’s not going to be larger in a few days. No, cashews don’t make people’s butts larger. Cashews make people happier because they’re fucking yummy and from today I’m going to eat cashews every time I crave them.

Cashews don’t ruin lives.
Eating disorders do.

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Demi-Sec

Feeling like a princess with my off-dry Veuve! Yellow flowers, cashews, lemons, golden apples, and freshly cut pears on the nose. Sweet apples, browning pears, lemons, cashews, and marzipan on the palate. Nice balance of fruit acidity and sweetness.

Where do cashews come from? From the Cashew Apple tree of course.

The nut, core or heart of the fruit, which is the green bit hanging down is outwardly located and is where cashews come from.

The fruit of the cashew tree is an accessory fruit and is called the cashew apple, better known in Central America as marañón.
