Colorful Vegetables: Photo A Day - I Bought This!

Day 1 of "May Photo A Day Challenge" : I Bought This!


Here's a picture of some fresh green vegetables purchased earlier in the morning today. The photograph was taken a few minutes ago though. Yupp, I just found out about this May Photo-A-Day-Challenge. So I took out all those veggies from the refrigerator, re-arranged the "spread" for the photo shoot, and clicked!



Don't you just love the different colors of the vegetables? That's probably one of the main motivational factors for me to cook... the wide variety of colors! Oh by the way, the photograph is missing some "white" -- i.e. one big cauliflower. I'd already cut it into pieces and stored it away in the freezer! So couldn't add it to this spread! :(


This is my first post for 2013 May Photo A Day Challenge.

Wow! You are doing it too! Awesome! Great last minute thinking :D

What is the difference between eggplant, brinjal, aubergine, mad apples?

@Shilpa... oh yeah! You should have seen the look on my Dad's face last night! I spread all those veggies on the center-table in the drawing room, and then rushed back to my computer to watermark the photo and write my post before the clock struck 12... asking Dad to put the veggies back in the fridge... with a big puppy-faced "PLEASSSSSSSE"! He couldn't even say no! The things our families have to put up with us bloggers!

@Abhiroop: Here... this might help...difference between eggplant, brinjal, aubergine, mad apples :|

Shail Mohan said...

What a colorful spread :)

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@ Shail - :D
I know... they look so tempting, don't they!
Btw, I posted a comment on your post earlier today. But my net was giving some problems that time. Did you get that comment?

Afshan said...

haha
I wanted to actually post this but then shifted to my sandals ;)

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Afshan, I guess I joined in this challenge to post a picture of my veggie-spread! LOL! :P

Reema Sahay said...

What a lovely picture! Yes, you are right, cauliflower would have complemented the picture beautifully. It was a smart thinking.
Personally, I don't fancy cooking much. And even more than cooking, I hate cutting vegetables, making the dough and some such work which is part of the preparations.

Nandana said...

Vegetables look appetizing. Feel like cutting them up and eating, I love eating raw veggies.

JANU said...

That's innovative and colorful.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Gosh, Reema! You sound just like me! Even I find the preparatory stuff soooo boring in kitchen! :P

For a change though, I'm enjoying cooking these days. That's probably because since I've started using the microwave, the prepared veggies retain most of their original color. So the thought of the colorful end-result keeps me going! :D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Nandana - "Raw vegetables" meaning salad stuff, right? Surely not bhindi, gobhi etc.?

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@JANU - Thanks! :D

Meena said...

The things we do for a pic huh ;)

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Oh yeah, Meena! Especially if it's for the blog! As the song goes... "blog ke liye saala kuch bhi karega!" :P :P :P

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

Bataiye na.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

OB, I have given a link in my previous reply. Check it.

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

That link doesn't even take me to the results page of a meaningful search. It is useless. bataiye na, itna bhi kya hai.

Waaaiit.


I know, you're not telling me because you DON'T KNOW!! Ha! Got it. Accept defeat!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Maybe... maybe not. The important thing is "I AM NOT GOOGLE". So for the Nth time, will you stop treating me like one?

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

It is precise because of this attitude of yours that we are unable to have a meaningful conversation anymore. We need to engage in serious jhagda now.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Ya ya... you are in queue... wait for your turn

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

:D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

:P
