As a kid I hated veggies. Despised them. You couldn’t PAY me to eat them. But looking back at how they were served, they were usually either canned or steamed. Two ways in which the veggies normally wind up smelling, weird. With canned you get the mushy can taste with it, with steamed they can be soggy with no flavor. So who could blame me?
So as an adult, after having my own child, I really had to buck up. This was a young person, whom I created and was going to be looking up to me. I had to start finding ways to eat healthy. So as I watched cooking shows, I payed attention to what THEY did with the veggies. They would sauteed them, roast them, do all sorts of things with them, and they looked good! So one day, Husband and I went on a date to a local casino. And had Dinner first. I ordered the sauteed green beans with a steak and mashed potatoes. And the Green Beans opened my eyes to a world of delicious veggies. They were garlicky, and crunchy, and I wanted more!
