…then you probably take yourself too seriously.
I laugh at myself all the time. Like when I start a load of laundry and then totally forget about it until next time I go to do laundry. Or when I just spent an hour in Target shopping, only to get to the check out lane and discover I forgot my wallet.
Or that time when I thought I was making parsnip fries, but actually made Daikon radish fries.
Parnsips and daikon radishes are almost the same exact thing, right? They sure do look a lot alike. Take a look at what a google image search will show you:
Okay, so not exactly the same, but if you don’t have them both in front of you and you have never really even heard of Daikon radish, you might get them confused. I’m totally trying to justify my vegetable mix up here. Is it working?
Although I’m laughing at myself, I can’t get too upset at my mistake because regardless of what kind of fries I made, they were delicious. I didn’t mention in my post that Tim and I devoured the entire two trays when I made these for lunch. Sometimes we are gluttons like that. (Meghan was not into them. She’s a weirdo eater who lately is only digging peanut butter and avocado. I’m working on it.)
Anyway, I got more of these radishes in my box this week, so now I have something to make with them other than pickling them or using them in a salad, which are the two main things I found when I googled “Daikon radish recipes”.
I also picked up some parsnips at the grocery store yesterday and am going to try the recipe with them. After that, I will edit the post accordingly. Hopefully it will be a versatile recipe that you can make all kinds of vegetable fries with.
In other news, my goal this week is to update my recipe page once again. I don’t know why I always let myself get behind on this task! I know I have a lot of recent recipes that I need to add, but I am also noticing more and more old recipes that are not there.
I made these Apple Chutney Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms last night for dinner, and had to search and search for the recipe:
I have a task ahead of me! If you happen to notice any old recipes that you are looking for and are not listed on the recipe page, please leave me a comment (either on this post or directly on the recipe page) and let me know.
Thanks so much, generous readers, for your help and for not laughing too hard at my fries mix up. I hope you have a lovely Thursday.
