Are you vegetarians? I am not, though I love vegetables so much, that I would join you at the moment you told me that vegetarians may eat dairy, because life without yoghurt and cheese is not for me. Stop. I am not about that now.Some years ago I made a decision to have vegetables in the backyard and a year later vegetable beds surrounded my house. Looking around I can see beautiful flower beds and juicy lawns, but all of them are located in my neighbor’s yards. They are pretty, but useless.First my husband supposed it to be my hobby, but then he realized that I am serious about vegetables and forever. He gets his meat every day any way and he stopped pay much attention to me, almost living in my beds in summer.
My around-house territory looks strange till autumn and it looks puzzling in autumn. But what a use there is in these beds! I have cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, garlic, parsley, dill, cabbage, broccoli, egg-plant, cauliflower, celery. Wow! I am charmed with this list.I love my vegetables so much, that saying “you are lucky today” before eating them is a must. I have a pet among them, it’s broccoli. It’s so hard to wait until it grew, but then my fantasy becomes boundless. I can have broccoli for each mealtime during a week. I cook it in all possible and impossible ways. It became impossible to surprise me with a recipe, where my dear broccoli is used.But the internet made me happy when I met a new recipe on this blog. I cooked these fantastic, healthy, incredible tots and even my husband highly appreciated them!
