Wavy baked potato

We had a friend over for dinner tonight. I made baked potatoes the best way I know how, by using a small appliance I have called "Tater Twister" by Presto and creating a lot of potato surface area that I basted with an Earth Balance - herb - spice blend. I also baked asparagus. I put a little bit of tofu in the salad, and also put some oniony nira grass in it. I was so happy that purple carrots now seem to be in season - they are the second favorite carrot type I've had, next to burgundy ones; both have a perfumy fragrance. I also served Romanesco and purple cauliflower.

They're available at Whole Foods in Chapel Hill, and are indeed good! They taste very nice and look beautiful. I have some pictures of non-baby purple carrots on my smugmug photo site.
