Christmas Day did not commence as well
as it should have this year.
MGW’s first task was to prepare some roast pumpkin
for lunch at her sister’s place.
So first thing out of bed…
down to the kitchen….
utensils at the ready.
Next thing was the pumpkin,
which had been stored in our pantry
for a couple of days due to a fridge full of food.
She reached for said pumpkin and
her fingers penetrated the skin.
With thoughts of salvaging some of it for lunch
she attacked it with the carving knife
only to be sprayed with smelly pumpkin juice.
Yes! It was rotten. To the core!
I am certain that I stored home grown pumpkins
for weeks in an old shed many years ago.
So much for the Fresh Food Supermarket!!!!
Sister-in-law’s telephone is not answering
so carrots have been substituted for pumpkin.
The thing is…if someone else is cooking carrots also
we are going to have good eyesight way into 2018.
