Z is for Zombie

I’ll bet if you read all of the Blogging A to Z Challenge posts today, you would find a lot of very interesting creative Z words.  But I also bet you’ll find a lot of Zombies.

Zombies seem to have become very popular over the last few years.  I’m not sure I’m as fascinated with them as some people I know, like my friend Stephanie over at Clay Baboons.  Now This Girl Knows Her Zombies!

But a few months back, I refered to myself as a Zombie Vegetarian.  My explanation for this was that there are times when I eat mindlessly within my chosen food criteria.  I eat the same thing all the time.  I’m Boring.  It’s as if someone, presumably another Zombie, has eaten my brain and I can’t think of anything new and different to try.  I stick with what I know.

Those of you who are familiar with my wonderful husband Ralph, he only had to hear that remark and he went to work.  This is what he came up with.

Yes, that’s me…terrorizing innocent vegetables. It might amuse you to hear Ralph’s version of the day I was slicing carrots with my food processor to make soup.  He made a Silence of the Lambs reference.  He said he had awakened to the screaming of the spring yams.  Well I guess you had to be there, it was pretty funny at the time.

Just so you know, I AM trying to be more creative with my veggie selections, moving slowly into new and different foods and recipes.

This is my twist on the Zombie theme that I’m sure is slowly dragging its feet across most of the Blogging A to Z community today.  As always, Ralph is kind to me in his drawings and I look a lot better than most Zombies.  But I’m still stalking those little veggies!

The Blogging A to Z Challenge has been a huge learning experience for me.  The organizers have requested that we post on May 7th about our experience with the Challenge.  I just found that out today, again thanks to Stephanie.  As Gram used to say…Always a Day Late and A Dollar Short!  Regardless…I made it… A to Z!!!

Tomorrow it will be business as usual here at BCDC.  Guess I have to come up with my own topics now.  Do I remember how??  Well, it’s May Day…That should give me something to work with.

Happy Monday!!

  1. i bet your “zombie vegetarian” theme is one of the more unique zombie-related posts in the challenge today, fran! i love ralph’s drawing…he is really talented!!
    i know, what are we going to do now when we have to creatively come up with our own blogging ideas?! i found the a-z challenge very inspiring! so glad you participated, too – i feel like i really got to know you (and your family!) a lot better over the past month.
    good luck with your search for new veggie recipes and ideas!

    • Thanks, Cathy!! I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you through the challenge. My Friend Helen after seeing the A to Z on my blog decided to do the letters in her name. She has a really long Polish name so she’ll be busy for a while. That might be a project to work on. If I use ALL of my names I could keep myself out of trouble for a while! Have a great day!

  2. Don’t forget my zombie show online. HG World.

  3. I think I love the screaming yams reference!!! Ralph is great (and so are you)!

  4. Yay! We did it!
    I had thought about doing zombies as well, but I had two friends say that if I did they’d be disappointed (they said it would be too easy- I believe “fish in a barrel” was a term thrown about by one friend) so the pressure was on to do something else. But I like reading the zombie ones, and I like your twist on it.
    Congrats on completing the challenge. Although I never doubted you would, because you rocked NaNoWriMo too. Jealous!

  5. Way to complete the alphabet challenge! It’s been so interesting reading all your letter-inspired posts (especially the people-based ones). And I’m a total veggie zombie, too. I eat the same thing most every single day. But I know what recipes/meals are easy, available in the fridge and healthy. Makes it extra-special when us zombies do branch out then, I suppose!

  6. Congrats on completing the challenge! I’m glad I got to know you through your posts and look forward to reading more. 🙂

    My kids and husband are vegetarian zombies–they only like the same few veggies. I’m trying to break them out of that mindset. 🙂

  7. Congratulations for your A-Z Fran! It’s been fun.
    I have the same problem with food variety although I’m not vegetarian. I eat veggie most of the time..and I always pack vegetarian lunches. It took me long time to venture past peanut butter…and I pack lunch almost every day!
