OK, so I did some research and learned that Asparagus is considered the Queen of Vegetables, and I thought EASY, Asparagus, great as she is (especially marinated in balsamic and olive oil, sprinkled with parmesan, and served with eggs over toast…) doesn’t have a blog, so I can still be Queen.
Then I found Jill, who actually IS the Queen of Veggies, and has a really great sounding book that I have to order. She is an RD, folks (a path upon which I nearly tread), so she’s got some stature there. But not only is she an RD and an author, she speaks all over, teaches, does consulting and more all in worship to vegetables, not to mention she has this seemingly huge and loyal fan base. I shall recommend you check her right out at www.theveggiequeen.com (yes, she even has the domain).
I hope Jill and I can be friends, and as if I had any choice, I will now symbolically and publicly hand over the crown I fantasized I might wear, and instead don my Pea shirt and call it good. I can be the Veggie Princess, perhaps.
