What do I know of man’s destiny? I could tell you more about radishes. Samuel Beckett
Radishes are red, radishes are rad, radishes are cute, borderline adorable one may even venture to say and …
Plant a radish, get a radish, never any doubt. That’s why I love vegetables, you know what they’re about! Tom Jones
… radishes are chock full of nutrients and vitamins as well. Throw them into salads, or better yet:
Spare feast! A radish and an egg. William Cowper
You can pickle radishes, or, as one of the forerunners of Romantic poetry proposed, make a feast of radishes with eggs.
What a strange machine man is! You fill him with bread, wine, fish, and radishes, and out comes sighs, laughter, and dreams. Nikos Kazantzakis
Or best of all,
slice them paper-thin, sprinkle ’em with good salt and layer over bread that is generously buttered.
A tiny radish of passionate scarlet, tipped modesty in white. Clementine Paddleford
Take radishes not for granted.
Radishes grow just about anywhere. People think, “Oh it’s just a radish.” But radishes are delicious, and people don’t think of cooking them. Emeril Lagasse
Moral of the story — go and enjoy some modestly passionate radishes.
Now, let’s end this with a joke.
A radish finally woke up after a horrific accident had left him comatose for weeks. The radish asked the doctor: “Doc what are my chances of a full recovery?” The doctor replied: “Well, I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but you’re going to be a vegetable for the rest of your life.”
What is not a joke and instead is credit & kudos given where credit & kudos is due is to my mother who came through like a food-styling goddess when I asked her to create a few on-the-fly radish food-stylings for me to photograph for this post. She is radishing to say the least. Brava to her and boo to me for ending this radish post with a bad pun.
