A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Purple Cauliflower Anyone?

While up in the Lancaster, PA, area today (getting our sewing machines serviced in Hinkletown), we had to make the "obligatory" stop at Goods, not only for the Amish/Mennonite food, but some cool stuff we can find only there (non-electronic toys, wool clothing, fabric and Traeger grill items for the son who grills). Most interesting was the purple cauliflower at the Market which I've never made or ever had. I guess it's a "thing," but I didn't buy one, but certainly took a photo of that awesome purple hue that looked quite fake.

Once home I looked it up and whaddayaknow, it gets its beautiful hue from the antioxidant anthocyanin which is also found in red cabbage and red wine. Who knew? It also contains 25% more Vitamin A than white cauliflower. Next time, I'll pick one up and try it.
