What A — What A Mess #Vegetarian #Vegan

As I recall, Piglet said that in a Winnie the Pooh cartoon. Our kids picked it up, and we’ve used it ever since, snapping it into place in all sorts of situations.

Also, down around these parts, a mess is a big bunch of food.

So I made this mess with fresh produce from the farmers market. (NOTE: I can never decide where to put the possessive apostrophe in farmers, so I leave it out. Call me ignorant. Call me lazy. –Oh, you did? Come over here and say that!)

Where was I?

Oh, yeah. This mess:

I boiled potatoes and kale together and mashed them together (kind of colcannon? kalecannon?). Meanwhile, I microwaved an ear of corn in the husk for three minutes, let it cool, shucked it, cut the kernels off, and added them to the mess.

Y’all — This is my favorite meal. I love it more than I love steak, and I love me some steak.

I suppose you could add some crumbled bacon and/or cheese and/or butter rather than vegan margarine, but I’m all about this right here.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a mess, and/or a piglet.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      I don’t know that I’d care for this with sweet potatoes. With sweet potatoes, I might do braised celery and onions.
