flowers from Studley

This morning I went to the garden for some celery, which is nearly the only thing still living (besides the brussels sprouts, about which I am in denial). As I washed it, I realized Studley had gone out after me and was bringing me another offering from the garden.

"Celery!" he pronounced.

"Nasturtium!" I corrected. It's important to instill a sense of botanical inferiority in anyone who knows less than you.

Whatever you want to call it, Studley picked me flowers this morning. In this case, dead blossoms on a leafy vine pulled up by the roots absolutely qualify as "flowers." Don't get any ideas, Chris.

I would also like to point out that if you take a picture with bright window light, the glare obviates the need to clean the sink before taking aforementioned picture. Coming soon, more pictures of things in my sink.

I will never be able to puke without laughing, I fear. How about you?

ok, so, the next thing i want to see in that sink is brussel sprouts being prepared for transport to a certain BAY ROAD location.

don't taunt me with the cold shoulder you have been giving those beautiful little green globes of delicousness. i have made many a meal out of just a big bowl of brussel sprouts, and been HAPPY about it.

i can't wait. i can't wait.

i want trout brussel sprouts to be the very first thing i cook in the new place!!!!!!!!
