Even potatoes have hearts

The other day i was preparing dinner. The plan was to make roast potatoes to go with spicy chicken and coleslaw. Whilst peeling the potato i came across this cute looking heart shaped potato. Excuse my puns but i simply did not have the heart to peel it or cook it as it looked so cute. I called my husband and sister in love into the kitchen to have a look but for some reason they could not see what i could see. The lack of enthusiasm from them was just heartless as they compared my cutie tattie to allsorts. They said its more of a hairy bottom than a heart…never mind.

I find the whole thin quite funny how human perception varies. How one thing could resemble many things to many people. I have always been this way even as a child, during the day i would happily climb some trees but at night the same trees would look like scary people with waving arms.

Look at the pictures below of my potato and let me know what you think.

A star is grown…yum

I am always sharing wonderful stories of my childhood to my children. The biggest reward is seeing their sheer delight written across their faces so i was so amazed when i came across these gorgeous star fruits. When i was child growing up in Africa, i used to eat so much start fruit. I would eat and eat until i get a sore mouth…(yep miss piggy right here).

Anyway when i took these beauties home my little ones enjoyed it so much and both said, ‘oh wow mummy its like twinkle twinkle’. It’s these little ‘awww’ moments that make me appreciate the beauty of God and as that beautiful hymn goes, ‘all things bright and beautiful the Lord hath made them all’.
