Pumpkin Flower

A photo of a pumpkin flower from the garden. I love the texture of the flower. Pumpkin season is coming soon. Since nothing should go to waste, some Greeks like to fry the flower in a frying pan and stuff it with feta cheese. I haven’t tried it but it should be good.

*Update: In a large bowl add flour, water and pieces of feta cheese. With a spoon fill the pumpkin flowers and place each flower in a deep-frying pan. Take out when they are brown and crispy. I tried them today and they are delicious! Serve as an appetizer.

Seeing Red/Kόκκινο Παντού

Red, the colour symbolic of passion, love…and anger.

How is that? How can it be both?

“When anger rises, think of the consequences”. Confucius

Κόκκινο, το χρώμα συμβολικό του πάθους, της αγάπης … και του θυμού.

Πώς είναι αυτό? Πώς μπορεί να είναι και τα δύο;

«Όταν ο θυμός ανεβαίνει, σκεφτείτε τις συνέπειες». Κομφούκιος
