On to B as we are eating the alphabet........
We took a trip to the Farmer's market and were only able to get a few things; beets are in season. Had to get the rest at the grocery store.
B is for:blueberriesbrussels sproutsbeetsbeansbroccolibananas
(we found baby bananas)
Blue place settings....paper B.....beet greens....banana bread...........
we did cheat just a little and added strawBerries, and oopsie- we got snap peas instead of beans (in season at the farmer's market) they looked so good and we have had plenty of beans in our time.
The best brussels sprouts I have ever had!!!!! (if i do say so myself...but it was all the recipe- this recipe- try it--the sprouts get brown and caramelized, and the olive oil & cheese just make them yummy!)
The beet greens. I have never known anyone to like beet greens, except my mom. She would make us eat the beets and she would eat the greens! (were you sparing us, or just wanted them all to yourself? :) We all tried little nibbles..........and decided they make better decorations than food....
blueberries our favorite!!!!! A+ from the mincy fam!
brussels sprouts A+ from mom, but a definite F from the rest of the family :( :( And not only did they dislike the brussels sprouts and beets and spit the beet greens in the toilet.....Daddy snuck the boys to McDonalds for a cheeseburger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
beets hmmmm, I even made these into Harvard Beets(a sweet/sour sort of sauce)we just don't love the beets. D+
beans- we always like beans, especially fresh and steamed- A+
broccoli A+ for broccoli too.
bananas- And another A+ (except from our eldest who thinks they are too squishy)
Alright- come on tell me who out there actually likes beets?!?!? (and I'm not talking about pickled beets)
And how about brussels sprouts?
