Stop it - you people! You're making me hungry - and nary a speck of coriander (cilantro) or parsley in the house.

I've just put on some vegetables to roast - potatoes, carrots, kumera, pumpkin, both red and brown onions - probably should go and try to find some sort of protein to eat with them.

@margo,
Kumera?......Bloody Kumera??

Cilantro was bad enough!

SWEET POTATO!

Good gawd! These bloomin' colonials! Set them up with a perfectly good language, teach them how to play cricket, and look what they gorn and dun!

@Lordyaswas,
Hold onto your meat and SWEET POTATOES and let us not disparage vegetables,

cf. the urine drenched tweed exclusively worn in the House of Lords when it isn't shut up for compleat refurbishment due to the stench from the cut of it's cloth,

such as the ASPARAGUS spear, most assuredly without peer.

@InfraBlue,
Well, why the hell don't people say so? I'm begining to actually agree with Lordyaswas.

no need, as they are self-explanatory in nature...

Kumeras are sort of orange-coloured sweet potatoes. Said to be low GI - if that matters to you.

I seldom see the older kind of (whitish) sweet taters around now.

@Region Philbis,
Ok, checked Graul's Market in Annapolis, they had cilantro in small containers along with the fresh oregano, dill, parsley and so forth. I almost picked it up, until it occurred to me I wouldn't know where to send it and it might seem suspicious to the Postal Service to discover a bundle of leafy things in an envelope. Sorry

Well, thanks for the thought.

We also got a personal letter from the new manager at our market, promising to get cilantro in. This dude used to be our fish dude, then he became manager of the Watertown store, and now he's managing our regular place. So it pays to flirt with be nice to the fish dude.

Offensive equally to Brits, people with weak stomachs, those who actually know anything about the British Parliament, and those who know how to use apostrophes. A truly dumb post.

Can anyone explain this to me? It's nonsensical.
