To Make Up For Yesterday's Mishap: "Vegetables Galore"

Exercise #73 : "Vegetables Galore"

Make a list of all the different kinds of vegetables you can think of: potatoes, bell peppers, eggplants, etc. Once you've completely run out, go back and circle the 3 you like best. Also circle the 3 you like the least. Additionally, circle the 3 you have thought about least in the past year. Notate also the ones you have no idea how to cook and the ones you have eaten in the past week. Finally, cross out the one you find most ugly and draw a star over the one you find most beautiful.

As the same with Exercise #72, I'll just notate the specific questions below the actual list.

  • potato
  • bell pepper
  • pea
  • eggplant
  • lettuce
  • asparagus
  • carrot
  • corn
  • cauliflower
  • broccoli
  • radish
  • green bean
  • pinto bean
  • lima bean
  • artichoke
  • pulse
  • beet
  • bok choy
  • brussel sprout
  • cabbage
  • endive
  • mustard
  • spinach
  • watercress
  • turnip
  • cucumber
  • zucchini
  • squash
  • black-eyed pea
  • chickpea
  • parsnip
I actually could think of several more, but... meh. I'm being lazy right now.

My favorite 3 veggies: corn, squash, and chickpeas

My least favorite 3 veggies: broccoli, turnip, and spinach

I've thought the least about pulses, endives, and beets (That is, however, not counting all of the times I thought about The Beets from Doug...).

I have no idea how to cook watercress, eggplants, and bok choy.

In the past week I have eaten corn, lettuce, and green beans.

The ugliest out of all of these, in my opinion, would have to be the parsnip. Yuck.

The most beautiful, I'm going to say, is bok choy.

Voila! There's the end! :)

I want to say thank you to all of you for your kind words yesterday. They were so appreciated, and I am absolutely blessed to have readers as wonderful as all of you! Sure, this is a hard time, but I'll make it through. Time will pass, and breathing will get a little easier. Once again, thank you so much. Your kind words helped me greatly.


P.S. Almost to 50 followers here on Blogger. That's AMAZING! I'm so excited! Thanks to everyone who recently began following my little blog! And many thanks to those of you who have followed me from the beginning. You're all absolutely GREAT, and I'm so happy that you're letting me share my journey with you.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
