How to survive November 2021 Day 16

Tuesday, bleak, even grey skies, dim light. Typical November day.

Good thing, I need to cook some pasta today, so I have to add some scallion onion, or spring onion to add some flavor. I found my green for today.

Healthy greens.

Our favorite month, November! This year we’ll get rid of gray by painting the month in green. Lepis from Parallel lines has hosted this challenge for years, I have been part of it for several years too, feel free to join us 🙂

Open your world to a green November and enjoy your creativity. How you do it is free as long as it’s green!

tomato is a fruit

  

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.   

Miles Kington

The difference between a bland tomato and great one is immense, much like the difference between a standard, sliced white bread and a crusty, aromatic sourdough.     

I think they named …

The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution.

I think they named the orange before the carrot

Garlic is divine

“Too lazy to peel fresh? You don’t deserve to eat garlic.”

“Garlic is divine. Few food items can taste so many distinct ways, handled correctly. Misuse of garlic is a crime. Old garlic, burnt garlic, garlic cut too long ago, garlic that has been tragically smashed through one of those abominations, the garlic press, are all disgusting. Please, treat your garlic with respect.”

Anthony Bourdain

“I could smell garlic, butter, and wine – the world’s most delicious flavor combination. It made me feel warm, like the first few sips of wine always do.”

Sarah Jio, The Violets of March

Onions

Happy is said to be the family which can eat onions together. They are, for the time being, separate, from the world, and have a harmony of aspiration.

an Onion

In onion is strength; and a garden without it lacks flavour. The onion, in its satin wrappings, is among the most beautiful of vegetables; and it is the only one that represents the essence of things. It can almost be said to have a soul.

Onion is such a great topic. I think I have to go ang by more vegetables and try to take food photos.

Onion study

The season of darkness is approaching is once again, so to pass time I took still life shots of an onion. I tried different lightings and contrast. Can you tell me which on is most to your liking?
