Blog prompt: October 1 is Vegetarian Day. Tell what your favorite vegetable is or the one you hate the most.
I love, love, LOVE sweet corn!!!! Those golden, sweet, juicy little kernels that just explode happiness in my mouth every summer. Where I am from in Missouri, we always had a Sweet Corn festival July 4th and you could get the best sweet corn anywhere. Right off the stalk, right in the pot and right to my plate. You don’t need any butter or salt because the taste is great all by itself.
Fried okra, cucumbers, anything to make a salad, broccoli and cauliflower. I just love summer time veggies. Here in Florida you can get a lot of those veggies just about any time of the year. Thank goodness for Farmer’s Markets!!
Now on to the veggie I hate the most!!!! Well that would be the dreaded tomato!Â YUK!!!!!! I mean when God was out in his garden, for some odd reason, he didn’t let the tomato finish growing. All that gooey stuff that comes out it when you cut it open!!!!! Look at the picture to the right and all that nastiness inside that thing! Now as long as its tomato sauce or in a salad, chopped up very small, I will eat them that way and maybe in a Bloody Mary or two……hehehehe But that’s it!!! Not right off the vine and eat it like an apple. It’s upsetting my tummy as I think about it. My dad loved tomatoes and he always said, “That girl did not come from my loins and not like tomatoes.” Sorry dad. 🙂
