February Avatars - Vegetable Personality

Post  ashort on 2/1/2012, 9:20 pm

In the spirit of Barbara Walters's famous interview question... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_X2Xd1iOmM

This month's avatar - If you were a vegetable, what kind of vegetable would you be??? Or if you prefer - which vegetable best describes you personality...


For me, its corn - on more than one occasion it has been used as an adjective to describe me....

I picked Kohlrabi only because I really want to try it! If I had to pick a personality trait, it would be corn also (rationale: strong stalk - backbone, independent - needs no assistance and need to peel back my layers to get to see the real "me" )

Hope that wasn't too deep but it's the first thing I thought of.

Theme for February?

Post  EatYourVeggies on 2/2/2012, 3:52 am

Still being new to the forum, I've missed a thing or two. I found out a little late that January was favorite cartoon characters as avatars. My question is, what about this month, February...are we doing a theme or just whatever? Thanks.

I'm not sure what I'd be, but as the saying goes,

For February it looks like I'm a tomato Very Happy

Since I hated them while young, but c. 6 lb/$2 on the last day of the farmer's market I couldn't resist! Told myself, since my wife and my mother both like them I'll cook some for them! They both loved them ,
and SO DID I! Guess I'd be a "Purple Top Turnip"!

My lips are sealed! Razz

Chayote squash is a curious little vegetable. It’s slightly intimidating with its odd pursed seam along one edge making it look like a cartoonish venus fly trap or the Grinch’s balled up fist. When you peel it, it lets off heavy beads of sweat and gets slippery. The juice dries on your hands making them tighten up like you’ve had a paraffin treatment, no matter how hard you scrub your hands.

I love asparagus so much that I've been known to eat 2# of it at one sitting, simply dressed w/melted butter and lemon juice.

And sometimes people tell me my humor is kinda twisted

Hmmm...I uploaded my new avatar and it shows in my profile, but for some reason it's not displaying. Can someone fix that?
