Gourd Blimey!! by andycoleborn

Gourd Blimey!!

Had hoped for a trip to the zoo today, but plans changed and we ended up entertaining around at my girlfriend's house.

So instead of lions, tigers and elephants, it was time spent chopping, stirring and prepareing a number of dishes for the evening's entertainment.

This photo is my girlfriend holding a 5 foot long Bangladeshi gourd. It's shaped like a baseball bat and about as heavy! I can't remember the correct name but I think it's a member of the pumpkin family and it doesn't taste too bad - well, when my girlfriend cooks it that is - I would have no idea where to start!!!

This was given to her by a friend who has been busy growing them in his garden.

I was trying for this type of shot but she wasn't in the modeling mood as was busy cleaning up and helping me out in the kitchen hence focus a bit off...
Oh my LORD, now THAT's a GOURD!! LOL!!

Ha Ha... I was threatened with it a couple of times.... Although it tastes ok, there's enough here for a week and I really wouldn't want to eat it everyday...
