Week 21 - The 52 Week Project
This morning I looked sadly at my blogs feeling somewhat guilty that I have been so lax in posting recently. In my head Marvin Gaye was crooning softly "Has anybody seen my old friend Abraham", and I realised I've lost my friend mojo! Can anybody tell me where he's gone? Gripped with panic I wondered why he'd gone and, more importantly, was he coming back soon? And then I looked at my blog reading list and also realised that there were a lot of my favorite bloggers, who like me would post at least once a week (sometimes more) who were also not so prolific these days! Are they all away looking for their mojo's too I wondered?
To be fair, I have plenty of little ideas floating around in this old brain of mine, but my studio is a mess on account of some alterations and renovations so I think maybe my mojo has just hidden away in a closet somewhere, afraid to come out lest he get moved, organised or worse!
So here is my attempt at a come back, an entry for the 52 week project headed by Lorrie Whittington, week 21. It sums up my week perfectly - Fiddleheads! No, not just an expletive that I might feel like yelling when I throw my hands in the air in despair at losing my mojo, vegetables! These are a spring delicacy around here! They are an unfurled fern which can be cooked and eaten cold in salad or you can saute them in a little butter and garlic. I actually quite liked them although Lovely Man told me exactly where I could put them... but I won't share that little gem with you!
