My mother in law has a magnificent backyard. She has a lot of aged trees and beautiful flowers, and some grows naturally and they are beautiful.
After lunch we decide to take a walk and chatting. When I was observe the trees, she tell stories about them (some family memories as the
Big White Fir (Abies concolor). That was planted when my husband bon.)
After a while I saw a plant, and ask for her: “Is courgette, don’t it?”
_”Yes, dear” she ask
- Let me show you something - and gently, she opened space truth the leafs and said;
- See, there some fruits almost ripen, and look this beautiful flowers
I bent down, and see the fruits growing down the flowers. She looks at me and said
_You know, are edibles
Yes I know, but I never tasted before, and told to her
She cuts a few, gave to me and said
_ I usually made fried like appetizer, but if you want you can made stuffed too
How these days I had no time to cook complicated dishes, because I started to remodel my kitchen, you know, comparing prices and all these stuffs that I need to do Then, I prefer made simply fried. And I tell you something….is delicious
