I too was going to put eggplant, but it is not a vegetable...it is a fruit

My favorite things are the things I can't get year round.

Garden fresh tomatoes--in a BLT, or sliced thick between two slices of toasted whole wheat bread, mayo and S&P.

Mushrooms--in everything, we don't grow them.

Avocados--sliced in sandwiches, or soaked in lemon sprinkled with salt and eaten by themselves.

I like almost all vegetables--okra, not so much.

Top of the list, mushrooms! Next is broccoli. After that it's harder to choose. I've gotten to really like zucchini. I also love onions.

Brussels Sprouts, roasted or sauteed
Mushrooms, if those count as vegetables, satueed or on pizza
Potatoes, fried/mashed/baked/au gratin/you get the idea.

If mushrooms don't count, then onions because they're so necessary for so many things as an ingredient.

Grilled asparagus. I'd live off of it if I could afford to (Pricey these days in my opinion!)
Green beans. Love to throw them in a veg chilli, or just dip them in salsa... Yummm...

Now here's the tough one. Number 3... Can't decide between cauliflower or broccoli... Do I have to choose???

Of course 5 litres, when it comes to alcohol is there a measurement other than litres???

Yes go and get some work done, you have to earn your booze!

I am going to earn mine by whipping up a meal for my family tonight. Serious role reversal in our house!

Knew the NHS would come in handy one day, I must look into setting up a repeat prescription, I can even collect it at the tesco near my house!

Will do Harry! Enjoy the rest of your day. Looks like the rain is about to hit us hear in Leeds, must dash to the supermarket before it starts pouring.

Catch you later!

Brocoli - Tastes fantastic with anything salty such as anchovies, bacon, soy-sauce. Also great with chilli and garlic panfried.

Egg Plant/Aubergine - Lamb, Apricots - what a combo. But Basil with goats-cheese is awesome too.

Since its summer - Watermelon. Goes fantastic with goats-cheese but a vietnamese twist would be with a green chilli, corriander and lime dressing plus some really fatty sweet bbq pork.
