I really love Farmers Markets.
And the one in my neighborhood ended in mid December.
*heavy wails of sorrow*
Anyway, it was good while it lasted. And I think it picks back up again in the spring.
But I saw some... interesting things. And you know me, I like to try new things.
My favorite was the multicolored carrots.
Those were GREAT because they had just been pulled out the ground.
I roasted those with a little butter and cinnamon. And that was good for me, because I don't like roasted root vegetables.
But this worked out!
I was walking through our local farmers market, perusing the fruits and vegetables, and taking pictures. I was drawn to a table full of greens and beautiful broccoli.
I stepped a little closer to the table.
I was still confused. I peered a little closer.
Then I stepped back.
What the world?
"What is that?" I asked the guy behind the table.
"An austrailian cauliflower," he said.
I said nothing. That didn't look like no cauliflower I ever seent.
It looked like some alien spawn. Or something off the bottom of the ocean.
"It's seven dollars."
I wasn't paying seven dollars for... alien spawn or ocean fodder.
I walked away.
You know... I don't even like cauliflower. And that one? Well, it looked suspect.
I like trying new things, but for me to try that, I'd have to try that at a restaurant.
And YOU would have to order it. And let me taste a little of it off of YOUR plate.
Otherwise, I think I will pass on that.
I looked that vegetable up. It's actually a roman cauliflower. It is rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, fiber and cartenoids.
And it is highly mathematical. It is a logarithmic fractal... whatever that means.
(I am more interested in that, since I am a scientist. *ladylee cheesing extra hard*)
Still looks like some alien spawn.
Or something found in the bottom of the ocean.
So now you know what it is. I'll let you all try that out..
Me? I'll stick with my carrots.
Revisiting fear... - I have been around long enough to know fear. I have looked at myself from the inside out, upside down, right side up and back again. I know fear. Fear i...
