It’s getting late and I’m determined to write a new post for the Making Invisible Art blog before I tuck in for the night — but I just happened to notice this beautiful and fascinating book called Vegetable Literacy by Deborah Madison on Scribd. Had to share. (The photo above is one of many gorgeous ones in the book by Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton.)
OK it’s actually just an excerpt, but still, Enjoy. I love unusual vegetables and eating unusual parts of common vegetables. Sweet potato leaves, for example. I love growing them and eating them all summer long.
Let me know if you get your hands on Deborah’s book, your favourite recipe, and particularly if you make something inspired by it. Inspire me with your inspired actions.
I have such a big stack of books I want to read, but won’t have time until, well, who knows when?
I was recounting this past week’s work to a friend and saying, “I can’t wait for all this to be done…” then paused as I wondered inwardly, “hm, when will this all be done?” and at the same time my friend said out loud, “you’ll never be done, you’re always just going.”
That made me feel depressed for a moment but then I remembered that I really enjoy my work.
The dilemma is that I also really enjoy breathing and being very very lazy.
