If you allow me, i ll write a sonnet or an ode for the cabbage and will probably call it An Ode To The Vegetable That Needs A Body Spray sort of thing. Do you get my idea? Now that i ve actually started off, i might as well write a sonnet or rather an ode. It will probably go like this.
Now that s what happens when you get me started on cabbage. I cant believe i wrote a whole poem. Ok so now that i ve told you all about my intense dislike for cabbage, i also have to agree that its not as bad as it smells and then, there s the phosphorous in it. So i do eat it now and then but i make sure that i make it in a decent way. This is just one of my ways of making cabbage and is probably as easy as eating a cake. Try it on one of those days when you are not upto too much chopping or when you are running late for that pedicure appointment but yet to make lunch. Oh and yeah and by the way, i must accept,cabbage makes a fantastic photo subject. So its definitely not as bad as it stinks. I m just saying.

The ode is so good and I do add grated coconut to pep it up for the kids.

somewhere in the lush green fields the cabbage would be grinning – paeans to the veggie would be something new for it even if they were not exactly propping it to Godly status. I add grated fresh coconut to elevate the dish to a different level.<br />Nice stir fry
