Not Toilette Paper

by Camellia Staab March. 13, 2020 296 views

While the citizens of this Midwestern city are running around grocery stores, stocking up on water, non-perishable items and toilette paper, I chose to buy some veggies of sorts and feed my addiction.

Can you name the veggies in the above picture?

This particular veggie is new to me, so of course I had to buy it. First to photography, then to eat. Taste pretty darn good. Do you know what it is?

Last year I took a photo of the above item in a totally different environment. Never realized that it too is edible. It belongs not in the veggie family (although after looking on line, it is cooked like a veggie) but in the fruit family.

I chose to do a macro because I thought it looked very cool. Eventually, I will take a photo of the entire thing, but for now, based on what you can see, can you guess what it is?

Having fun amidst the craziness around me.

Lovely food photos. Veggies are not so much in demand for the moment.

I was pleasantly surprised with the taste of the watermelon radishes. And someone told me that at one of our local restaurants they fry these and serve them. Thought that would be something to try as well.

Such inviting images for sure. Without cheating- I would guess some sort of radish or dragon fruit, carrots, and no idea of those others maybe dried scallions?

Well, at least the idiots have stopped buying pasta in loads. That is ... pasta which has some kind of Italian name and which, following idiots logic, is thus Italian. Last week it was all gone from the shops, now it's piling up, while ... other pasta is still sold out. I'm trying to find the overall logic in this, but last week it must have been something like "Hell, they are not gonna produce this stuff anymore", while this week it is "Those contaminated motherf¨***ers are producing this stuff". Interesting thing is that most of the paste in the shops where I buy do have an Italian name, but are produced in Germany smile

I find this funny because I was talking to my cousin who lives in Paris and he said the same thing. Somehow all the weird pasta's that normally sit on the shelves and regular stuff were all bough tout. He is a huge pasta eater and was disappointed that he could not get any.  I am just not understanding any of this logic. They must way smarter than me  smile

Today apparently this "logic" was followed by buying all the meat in the fridges and lots of water. Somehow the idiots expect that the slaughterhouses in Flanders are all gonna close down, while at the same time switching from beer to water (the pubs are closed on government's order) ...

I REALLY like #1! No idea what #2 or #3 are, but they sure look pretty. Nice work! Continue having fun, but stay safe!

I am totally surprised at the reaction for #1 (posted on fb as well) since it is not my favorite, but thank you for liking, I agree with # 2 looking pretty and #3 I am going to leave open until further posts. I am keeping safe although totally in awe at peoples' reaction/actions ( the world has gone crazy and  I want out smile ). Hope you are staying safe as well.

pretty colours.. i won't spoil it for others, but i know what the colourful one is.. never eaten one tho.. are they 'peppery?' :)
but i'm totally curious about the last pic.. very well done..

3 months, 3 weeks ago Edited
Camellia Staab Replied to Sherry Hill 3 months, 3 weeks ago

Not really peppery, more mild and sweet, my first experience as well.  The last one I am going to ride for a while only because it is not something I would have encountered as an edible on first sight.

I see carrots and tomatillos.  Is the other thing a type of eggplant?  You macro shot is cool but I have no idea what it is.

No eggplants in this scene, but I do see where you got the idea because I experienced my first round eggplants a few days ago. smile
