Dirty Dancing in the Kitchen



Dirty Dancing in the Kitchen



Baby: I carried a watermelon.  (Dirty Dancing – 1987)

 So, everyone knows that baby carried a watermelon, right?


Well, what is ever so slightly less well-known, is this…


I carried a Zucchini.

That’s right, a great BIG freakin zucchini – grown organically (none the less) by my MIL.  (Mother in law, if you are reading this…that’s you…okay?)

Since dressing this garden vegetable in clothing and wheeling it into the shopping centre tomorrow in a pram, just to see how many people will lean in to admire my baby, might be considered a) socially unacceptable, b) a wee bit creepy and c) a waste of good food, I will contain myself.


It would be bloody funny though, wouldn’t it?



So, that being said, I am at a loss to know what to do with it.


What would you suggest I do with this mammoth vegetable, (please don’t be smutty!) for those occasions when my family starts to look at me with those hungry eyes?



Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
