Next on my list was this weird radish: The Daikon Radish. I was on my way out to Kerman and stropped by Kao Farms (on Shaw just west of Grantland) and picked up the strawberries for my drink. I also picked up the snap peas that I love (stay tuned, more on them in a later post) and I stood there musing over the ugly looking white carrot-like thing. The young man behind the counter told me to try them (only a dollar for a bag of three) and he told me to eat them raw in a salad. OK....I am game. I trotted off to my car with my loot and drove to my Parents to join them for a Chinese dinner out.
As I walked in the door, I showed the radish to my Dad
"What the H*** is that?""It's a Daikon radish. Want some?"
"I'm hungry but not THAT hungry. For God's sake, go get your mother....she's taking forever to get ready and I am starved."
I walked down the hall, with Dad in tow (he was hoping that my prodding would get her moving).
She sees me and asks, "Ooooo....what's that?""It's a Daikon radish. Want a bite?"
"Sure" and she takes a big bite "tastes like a radish! No big surprise. You try it."
I bite off a big chunk "BLEH.... Oh instant heart burn. Not a good idea....I think it needs salad dressing or something"
Sitting on the bed, very annoyed with the delay"Ah-hem.....Ladies, while you are having appetizers I am STILL waiting for dinner!"
