Feed me, Seymore

25 Nov

There are a couple of posts doodling away in my head.  Comparison of US and UK pre-elementary education, how much it sucks to lose internet connectivity when you are calling home on Thanksgiving, ongoing battles with the recycling program, how to make a Thanksgiving dinner in one hour when every.square.inch of your house is stacked christmas-tree high with boxes,  several days out, mince pies, ladies lunches, the bizarre fashion trend of wearing tights — just tights — without pants, and how it is totally, totally okay to suddenly start crying to the radio when you are going to pick your kids up from school.  (You’re a human being, congratulations.)

But I’ll be honest:  I’m tired.  And while I know the unpacking will end, at this moment I don’t quite believe it.  So  I’m going to leave you with a mystery.

This morning when I opened my box of veg I found this staring at me:

What is it?  How to prepare it?  And if I drop any blood on it, will it come alive?

    Monique, did you always know you had this way with words? You bake them into wondrous treats for my eyes. Good grief, woman, start looking for a publisher – STAT!

    That is a cabbage, but I suspect you knew that already. I like a good hearty fried cabbage (with bacon, of course), but the Brits might steam it or boil it and top it with gravy. Either way, not healthy, but oh so yummy. The one I have in my veg box this week is a bit different, but I think I see some fried cabbage in MY future.

    I want to tell you how long it took us to unpack, but it’s a first world problem. Obviously.

    Hang in there!

    Yes, exactly! Except I don’t use sugar. Sometimes there is enough grease from the bacon that I don’t used any oil either. It’s super-simple!

      I wish there were a thumbs-up button in WordPress — two thumbs waayyy up for this new recipe! Thanks!

    Holy crap that’s some seriously scary-looking cabbage. How did you not run screaming?

      I have to say, when I chopped it up it felt a bit … well … like I imagine murder might feel. It seemed sentient. But mmm, fried up nicely! Ha!
