Vegetable? Fruit? Pistachio?

Look what I found in Harris Teeter:

It's very rare you get to witness a mother tomato giving birth, so I moved her onto some bags of pistachios to get a better look. I was tempted to buy her, but she would have just sat on my windowsill where I would have looked at her every day and said "weird" until she turned into moldy tomato mush. Then I would have to throw her away. So I saved myself the 89 cents (and her the indignity) and just took a picture.

I hope she found a good home. I'm sure she's delicious.

Anyway, that's pretty much it. Enjoy the weekend!

**Edited to add:
Does anyone know when/how to tell if olive oil has gone bad? Several cases of sealed bottles of olive oil have found it's way into the BF's kitchen, expiration date August 2008. Is it safe for consumption? Or am I throwing a major slip'n'slide party? Both?

That tomato is odd looking -- like some kinda bioengineering experiment that went wrong. I'm glad you didn't eat it. You could've woken up with morning with three eyes or something.

"woken up in the morning with..."

I think bioengineered food also causes grammar and spelling mistakes.

dingo - Is it bad I didn't even catch the mistake? I guess you don't even have to eat the mutant tomatoes to be affected, just looking at them seems to be enough. Or touching them...where's my Purell?!?

I don't think it should matter when those bottles of EVOO expire because your idea trumps expiration dates. Make sure to take pics at that slippery mess of a party!

so - So true. Especially girls still rockin' the purple scrunchies. Wussies.

nilsa - Oh, rest assured, it will be well documented. Oh the humanity!
