Foodie Pseudery (23)

On the courgette flower as self-help manual (no, really):

Too ephemeral for any outside drama or noisy to-do lists, squash blossoms are best cooked the day they are picked. So they force you to live in the moment. Depending on your level of commitment, you may even find yourself thinking in hour-long squash blossom increments.

And this makes them beyond beautiful. If you struggle with living in the past or in the future, they can act like an instant, edible self-help book. You know the kind. The kind that urges you to behave in the present. The kind with a name like The Power of Now or You Can Heal Your Life.

  1. You know, I actually quite like this … squash blossoms are also rather gorgeous in and of themselves. Like life. (That last part was a joke).

    • I thought as much. Yum. Squash blossoms. We should eat them when they’re in season again.
