Last weekend, we invited our neighbour (TP) over for lunch. As I know TP likes spicy food, I decided to make sambal fried rice, korma chicken, chickpea curry and some sweet and spicy prawns. TP brought dessert which was an apple crisp baked with acushnet apples, blueberries and strawberries. We had a long lunch..just enjoying the food, dessert and chatted to our hearts content.
TP also brought us to her little vegetable plot after lunch to show us all the vegetables that she has grown i.e. tomato, eggplant, bell peppers, lettuce, basil, cucumber etc. I was so thrilled to see all the vegetables hanging off the branches of the actual plants...the only place that I had ever seen those vegetables were on the shelves of supermarkets! Seeing how excited we were over the vegetables, TP took out her garden shears and started cutting off some ripe vegetables from her plants to give to us. She gave us 3 eggplants and 2 cucumbers that we are planning to make some nice sandwiches and to cook an eggplant curry with.
