In keeping with yesterday's Friday Funnies, let me show you where I will not be this weekend.

Though that green grass in the midst of the high desert does look inviting, the monsoon is promising thunderstorms today. Not a good time to be out in the open clutching a metal golf club in one's hand.

This solitary golfer did seem to be enjoying himself, though.

But the clouds keep promising rain and I think today is the day.

Just to change the subject, you've probably heard of wine tastings. And with the growth of "craft" beers there are beer tastings. And even olive oil tastings. But have you ever heard of a carrot tasting? SWMBO and I had one the other night. She had picked up a bag of mixed carrots, sort of like heirloom tomatoes. There were the standard orange ones. Some yellow-orange ones. Some yellow ones. And some PURPLE ones. She sliced them up and whipped up some aioli sauce and we set to it.

Our conclusion? They all tasted exactly alike. Like carrots.

Muggles' conclusion? 

"Carrots? You humans are daffy. Isn't that rabbit food?"

I tried telling him that carrots are said to be good for the eyes. But he replied that his eyes were just fine and he could change the color of them any time he wanted to.

You just can't argue with a cat.

The thought of lightning reminds of a Lee Trevino quote I love; asked if he wasn't afraid of being hit by lightning Lee said, "Even God can't hit a 2 iron."

Ha! I'll be passing that on to the golfer in my family! Thanks! Always enjoyed watching Lee Trevino play.

I'm with Muggles. I didn't climb to the top of the food chain to eat carrots! ;)

SWMBO turns even carrots into a tasty and appealing item! And did you really expect a carrot to taste any differently than a carrot?

I can change the color of my eyes, too, any time I want. All I have to do is drink too much and they turn red. Happy Weekend.

I expected a purple one, at least, to taste different than an orange one.

Excellent: the words and the pictures!
Carrots of different colors could taste the same but for cauliflower: orange ones and white ones taste different, orange ones tasting better... Did you try?

Frank Phillippi said...

Actually Trevino made his joke about a one iron and I still have mine just for reasons of personal safety

Catalyst said...

Nope, not a big fan of cauliflower, though I keep seeing recipes for grilling it.

Good planning.
