I’m having a bit of a dilemma. I’ve happened upon a vegetable that for the life of me, I cannot place. We have a local produce store that I adore. They further have made certain that I’m a customer for life in that they send out a weekly 10% off coupon. I’m a sucker for a bargain. And to make matters even more exciting, at the checkout register, they further tempt me with bags of deeply discounted ugly vegetation. For a mere .88 cents a bag. There’s nothing wrong with the contents. Often they are filled with odds and ends. I came home with two such bags this afternoon, filled with baking potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, lettuce, and a mystery vegetable.
It’s about the size of a soft ball, but reminds me of a cabbage in both texture and color.
And if so, what do I do with it? I refuse to let it go to waste. After all, it cost about 10 cents.
And for the record, I’m still without a washing machine. And what luck. This is the weekend that I’m camping with my girls and their A.H.G. scouting troop. I fear I’m going to be needing ALL of my stretchypants in good working and clean order. Another trip to the laundry mat may send me right over the edge. There must be a badge for that.
