I experience an extraordinary, borderline silly amount of joy whenever I see oddly-colored vegetables. Years back, when this blog was much younger, I had a streak where I was finding oddly-colored vegetables all over the place.

I love a fun kitchen gadget. My friends know it, too. So when I was chatting with my friends Kristy and Mike a few weeks ago, Kristy asked if I had a Veggetti. I didn’t – I hadn’t even heard of it – and we moved on to other topics of conversation. Then, three days later, a package arrived. Kristy and Mike sent me a Veggetti!
