Okay, I'm sorry, I'm just going through some difficult stuff, namely having to pack up for a nice weekend at my parents' house, so you understand. I have to put clothes and snacks into the car. These are trying times. Let's discuss vegetables.
Jicama: seems like I should have had it before? But I've definitely never prepared it before. I made it in salad form with Yucatan pork tenderloin. It tasted...crunchy. Like flavorless carrots. Or I have actually lost my ability to taste things.
|Maybe lacking a sense of taste means I will lose weight? Haha, no, I'll just eat twice as much.|
|Our muppety-est vegetable.|
|Or was just realizing with concern that her infant sister was again Bumbo'd on an ELEVATED SURFACE ACROSS THE ROOM. See? If I were in less of a hurry I would probably remove this proof of parental incompetence.|
|I can still taste olives, so let's hold off on full panic.|
Swiss chard: I have cooked this many times, and yet every time I say it out loud I worry that I'm pronouncing in incorrectly. Okay, this website tells me I was ALMOST right, just not quite British enough. I'm wondering if that's the case with a lot of words.
|Oh, the food--it's pasta and chicken sausage. Just take a minute and let the inspiration wash over you.|
|I'm very proud either way.|
|Hello, weekend! I greet you with mild suspicion!|
