 Aloo Gobhi 

A few years ago I planted one tiny mint plant, purchased from the grocery store up the road. The mint plant multiplied again and again and again. While some think sprawling mint is a bother, I consider mint a blessing. After all, the mint thrives in a spot that previously was a bark patch. Plus, the backyard smells, well, so minty.

When I found out that a neighbor purchases her mint at the store and farms I invited her to pick the mint in my backyard.

She picked and picked to her heart’s content. She’s welcome to come back - anytime.

On Sunday a few of the neighbors shared for special meal. We ate spicy chutney that my neighbor made from the mint she picked in my backyard and more…..

My other sweet neighbor taught my mom and me to make make aloo gobhi (potatoes cauliflower).
