Our Beautiful World

Good morning...

It's Sunday and that means a new word prompt at 
Manuela has chosen the prompt and it's Vegetable....

Well much as I love my vegetables ... I neither grow them - save for some potatoes occasionally - and I never think to photograph vegetable either ... So this one got me thinking


Now garlic is a vegetable right? It's something I use a lot ... and as you can see mine has it's own special pot too ...
Perhaps it's because I come from a family where 2 of my Grandparents were French and one was Swiss that I like to flavour food with garlic and herbs ... It's good for you too


I do grow herbs ... and in my vegetable box there are always onions, white and red, carrots which I love roasted and of course potatoes ...
Over the years I have become a much more confident cook ... my husband loves his food and he particularly loves the meals I come up with ... There were many times in my life that money was tight ... even as a child ... and I learned to cook good wholesome food on a budget ... 

This is our local farm shop ... plenty of root vegetables


But it's expensive ... probably because these aren't actually grown on this farm ... I wish I'd taken a photo of the vegetables on display in Spain and Majorca ... half the price and 3 times as big as ours ... And some I have never encountered before ... I think you always 'eat' with your eyes first so my meals and my salads have to be colourful which means lots of different vegetables... And I love beetroot and cauliflower, green beans and peas ... well, I don't think there is anything I don't like when it comes to vegetables

What about you? We'd love it if you shared with us at


Perhaps you can enlighten me as to some of the more exotic vegetables and how you cook them too ...

Wishing you a blessed Sunday
