101 things to do with a parsnip

Is it a sheep or a poodle.? Fucked if I know
I am knee deep in constructing vegetable animals, baking and flower arranging. My quiche is finished and appears firm bottomed enough but I was shocked to hear that my flower show nemesis -Terry Maltoff ( he was the committee member I accused of using furniture polish on his marrow if you remember) has just taken HIS quiche out of the oven!
I didn't even know he was entering one!
The gloves are off!
Bring it on big guy!

  4. I have a feeling you're just about to invent numero 102 on the parsnip list! Good Luck to you all for the weekend. I left a comment on the Flower Show Blog but I don't think it's frequented all that much!

  5. Oh, frigging hell, I'm never going to win against that! I just spent half an hour rifling through the carrots in Asda, trying to find a pointy one. I looked like a right weirdo!

  17. I wonder, if your 15-year old self read this list of activities, would he be impressed, or embarrassed?

    Since I'm only picking beans and cherry tomatoes by twos and threes now, I'm tempted to just turn them into sculptures for the fun of it. I bet it's harder than you'd think. (Beyond the obvious twigs and berries, you naughty, naughty man.)

  18. Good luck with the show John, and especially your quiche! We're all cheering you on from cyberspace!

    You didn't ask, and I know you don't need any advice, but I'll just give you my tip for a good quiche as you know starts with the crust--to keep the crust from getting soggy, sprinkle grated cheese on it just when you take it from the oven after prebaking it--This way the cheese melts and seals the crust somewhat before you add the liquid filling--Or another way to keep it from getting soggy is to brush the crust with egg white before pouring the filling.

    Again, good luck!!!!

  22. If I have to sell my wares..and yes I mean my WARES to raise enough money to get to that flower show next year...I will. And don't woory too much about your quiche, A soft bottomed one is just as worthy in my opinion.

  28. Whatever it is, it's brilliant! And are those feet or skis?

    By the way, have you ever seen Carl Warner's vegetable-based landscapes? Just google Carl Warner foodscapes. You won't be disappointed!

  29. If T Malthoff is bringing a quiche then don't forget to bring your marrow. Just make sure it is well buffed! I think your vegetable animal is definitely a 'sheep' dog.
