Purple Smurple!!!

Hi There!

Last Sunday, I went and picked up
some groceries and, according to the
list that Gilbert had given me,
we needed some cabbage.

You see, every weekend,
we write down the week's menu -
it helps with groceries and our budget.

Anyhow, Wednesday's supper (tonight),
we were supposed to have boiled
potatoes, turnip, carrots and cabbage.

While I was at the grocery store,
I made a couple "executive" decisions...

I figured it would be more
interesting to have parsnips,
instead of carrots and when it
came to the cabbage,
that's when things turned "purplish"...

They only had purple cabbage,
instead of the green kind
and I figured that purple cabbage
would do the same thing.


Of course, the broccoli was cooked separately,
otherwise it would have certainly
become "Purple Smurple", too!

Anyhow, supper was delish,
although quite comical!

Hope you get a chance to
get a chuckle or two, today!

ROTFL..."Purple Smurple???"
I really want to know when you are going to publish your dictionary "The World in Rosa's Words". I want a signed copy :)

Purple is one of my fav colors, so it actually looks pretty good to me.

OK, let's try this again. 8) What is E&J Day? (This time I have carefully checked the "Email follow-up comments to ..." checkbox, which should help.

This is soo funny! Here in the US where I live in Arkansas, the grocery store has purple or orange cauliflower. I make 'cauliflower eggless salad' and boy! did it look strange when I made it out of the purple cauliflower! Even the water in the steamer was purple and also the stems of the cauliflower were purple!
