Once in a while, a piece of fruit, a vegetable or even a chip comes along that you know is special. Maybe you’re peeling carrots for dinner and from the depths of the bag, you see what appears to be a pair of disembodied and rather shapely carrot legs…or perhaps you are strolling through the produce dept. and you notice that a particular coconut is smiling knowingly, just at you…
Why, only the other evening did my partner arrive home to discover that there was a particularly jocular-looking mushroom stalk amongst us.

Freakish natural anomaly or message from the universe? Its up to us to decide, I suppose.

The truth is, just like life, its all about the eyes we see it through.
