A dieter's delight and salvation, greens offer lots of healthy eating without an abundance of calories.
Also known as rosette pak choi and flat cabbage, tat soi has very thick lustrous black green leaves arranged in a rosette of regular, concentric circles, with prostrate and upright varieties. The leaves vary from flat and smooth to puckered and crepe-like. This is an attractive plant with potential as a border for flower beds and ground cover as well as a vegetable. Some authorities include tat soi in the Brassica rapa (Chinensis Group).
It has a pleasant and sweet aroma flavor like a mild mustard flavor, similar to bok choi. Tatsoi is generally eaten raw, but may be added to soups at the end of the cooking period. When tatsoi is mixed with other greens it enhances the flavor and nutritional value. Tatsoi may not be available in your regular grocery store. Specialty markets may carry it, or it can be grown from seeds, in warmer climates.
Added excess turmeric powder to a vegetable? Don't panic! Just cover the vessel's mouth with a white muslin cloth. The cloth will absorb the excessive turmeric.

My mother-in-law bought her first mobile phone. Its ringtone was a classical symphony.
“I’m getting lots of calls but they always hang up,” she told my husband a few days later.
“That’s odd,” he said. “I’ll phone you and see what happens.”
He dialled her number, but she sat motionless for more than a minute as her handset trilled away.
“Why aren’t you answering?” my husband asked.
“Oh, sorry,” she said. “I thought I had to wait for the tune to finish.”
