C is for Colorful Produce.

C links to other participating blogs at
Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday Round 4.








... or perhaps I should say produce of unexpected colors.


Grandson Byron, who is currently staying with us, brought home these bright vegetables (among many others) from the Monterey Market, and I couldn't resist taking photos of these few. Purple Cauliflower?

I have never seen purple cauliflower. I love to use brightly colored peppers in dishes that call for green peppers. Really brightens up a dish

These look very nice. Great colours. This is my first visit to your blog and at first I thought Queen Elizabeth started a blog under the name of Granny Smith. But you must have heard that before. Or are you really....?

I've never seen purple cauliflower before! Did you cook it? I wonder if it stays purple when cooked.

Oh, how nice to have a visitor. When I was in college, I spent one semester living with my Grandma in Clarion Pa. It was one of the best times of my life. I loved my Grandma so much!

Purple cauliflower is interesting. You have the coolest things in California.
