So it's a culinary adventure around here, right? Sometimes. Eric is not the veggie lover that I am. In his defense, he never complains, and I think he tries to be stealthy when he scrapes 75% of his dinner into the trash. It continues to be my fantasy, however, that I can somehow transform his tastebuds into something that craves sauteed Swiss chard, tomato and onion salsa, buffalo mozzarella, and a big basil leaf sandwiched between two slices of breaded and pan-fried eggplant. It's really quite fantastic - try it. This week I made a veggie lasagna featuring eggplant, squash, portabello mushrooms, and spinach - two of those ingredients he really does NOT like. But he ate it! He didn't have seconds, but he ate his entire portion. How did I achieve such a feat? Why, by covering it with two of his favorite things of course - cheese and tomato sauce! :)
So my plan (I realize it's a LONG term plan) is to turn Everett and Paxton into vegetable loving, gardening, foodie chefs. Then
Here is Everett (15 months old) "helping" in the garden earlier this year.
