What’s This?

Disclaimer:  Remember when I said that I needed to clean?  Well – I really do clean.  No – really! 

In fact, just recently, I cleaned out my refrigerator. 

Ummm – actually, I wasn’t technically cleaning – I was scavenging for food.  But, at least, I was hunting among the vegetables!  That’s good – right?  And – that way, I was clearing things out of the vegetable drawer.

Oh, my goodness – I just realized – this is a veggie tale. . .

(A song interlude – I just can’t even apologize for this one.)

So. . .  I was foraging – and I found these pushed back in the corner of the vegetable drawer.

I don’t know what they are. 

Since they were in the refrigerator vegetable drawer, they must have something to do with vegetables – right?  But I can’t think of any vegetables that could turn into these little hard, shrunken, tan thingies.

Any ideas? 

I mean – it’s not like this is a matter of national security or anything.  But I do have more than a passing curiosity about what could possibly have been in the vegetable drawer of my refrigerator and is now totally unrecognizable.

Disclosure:  I had to enlist the help of 2nd Daughter and 2nd Son-in-law in order to remember the word “disclaimer” (above).  Arrrgggggh!!  It must be because I just have so much essential information in my brain after all these years that there is no room left for processing simple information.  It has absolutely nothing to do with getting older or age-related loss of memory.  Yeah – that’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it.

    Hmmm, I wonder if you stick them in water overnight if they will rehydrate and you can use them again. 🙂

    Carrots, definitely carrots. I’ve seen them get like this when they get really dried out. I had a friend who found a carrot that looked like pants. She named it “Carrot Pants” and kept it around for a while. Then, it started to look like your photos above so she threw it out. 🙂 I suppose it could also be a similar sort of root vegetable that dries in the same way.

    Clever Lyndatjie, I was going to say that’s a turnip for the books, but I’m a little afraid that veggie song will play again …

    Hmm… can I ask a truly stupid question? How did you add the extra links at the top underneath your picture? For the life of me I cannot find it… 😦

    I downloaded the pic – cleaned it up – improved the focus and I now have the answer!
    It is the MISSING LINK!
    Ha! Pay me for my brilliance….
