I would like to call this week a rousing success because there was nothing I did not enjoy. I think the ultimate question I like to ask myself after wrapping up a fruit or vegetable is if I would buy it again. I sincerely think I will be sitting there making a grocery list another day and think on how good the two recipes were this week and that I should eat them again. Rutabagas know how to work their sweetness and masquerade as a boring root vegetable.
I think case closed here. Buy some rutabagas, maybe skip over the turnips until you’ve really latched onto these bad boys. Try them out. I have nothing more to really say on the humble rutabaga.
I would like to say that this is the end of week 13. We are a quarter of the way done with the year. I definitely did not believe I would still be doing this past one month, let alone three months. That may just be me being cocky, but this is a celebration!
I will say I believe I have stumbled upon a supplier of odd fruits and vegetables and hope to get as much as I can from them, at something I can afford. I know y’all are here for the weird stuff, and honestly that is why I am here too. The weird stuff is cool looking, interesting and all around new, whereas stuff like rutabagas you can see everyday.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try it though.
We shouldn’t excuse the everyday things in our life, because they all contribute to your day. Yes, a delicious dragon fruit is cool and unique but have you even tried a radish? They are gorgeous and you can grow them yourself if you wanted. Anyway, I am excited for the remaining year and who knows what else.
I do want to say thank you to everyone who has followed, shared, recommended and asked every week, “what are you eating this week?” I invite you all to join along and I hope some of you are, because it is fun to try new things.
