Vegetables lead to Wrongness [Jan. 7th, 2007|02:21 pm]
Douglas Spencer
I'm at Alex's, peeling vegtables for lunch. I'm peeling parsnips, Smitty is peeling carrots, and somehow the thought enters our heads... David Dickinson is orange, yes? And Data is white? Surely someone, somewhere, has written Dickinson/Data slash?

Cheap as chips!

Dickinson/Data slash

Well, I guess it's marginally better than some of the other things you might have got up to with those poor innocent vegetables...

Incidentally, why bother peeling parsnips and carrots?

1. Nearly all the vitamins are just under the skin.

2. Just scrubbing them involves less work.

3. They taste great when roasted in their skins.

I haven't peeled a root veg in years. Result? Less work, more vitamins and great flavour.

True, I roasted potatoes and parsnips and carrots today, no peeling was done, they were very tasty (actually I didn't get any of the carrots, my guests had them all!).

I peel parsnips, but that's partly because they now come sealed by a nice coating of wax (looks like they're dunked in paraffin or something). I like to season my root vegetables, but paraffin isn't a favorite flavor.

I get organic parsnips from Riverford (a veg box scheme) and I'm pleased to say they've never been near wax.

I have to say

1) Why peel the vegetables?!
2) You're a disturbed man

Wouldn't that be Bestiality?

It is my opinion that you are bad and wrong for one important reason: You peel parsnips. ;)

The correct use of vegtables is to feed rabbits.

Then eat the rabbits.....

Don't kill 'em in front of the kids though, mind you when my mum was a lass the killing of the pigs was a spectator sport which involved all the kids in the neighbourhood.

surely someone, somewhere, has written dickinson/data slash?

a] i hope not;

b] as my hopes are generally rapidly trampled pretty thoroughly underfoot: prob'ly;

c] if done true-to-character, wouldn't it tend to suffer rather severely from -
well, not to put too fine a point on it -
wooden characterisation, that some might find a little stiff?
