I haven't posted to a veg thread for months and months!! We made the yummiest popcorn balls yesterday that even my meat n' potatoes DH admitted to loving - popped corn, honey, dates, raisins, sunflower seeds
Last night's dinner was nut burgers from Feeding the Whole Family. My first time cooking those, and I think they were the best veg. burgers I've ever made
The kids gobbled them up, too. But DH wouldn't eat more than a "polite bite", just b/c he knew the ingredients. LOL! We had that with some barley/squash pilaf that I found in the freezer, and figured I'd better eat it now, b/c squash won't be so appealing in the Summer!
Oh, we also had lots of relatives over this past weekend, where one night was my night to cook, and the other was my SIL's. I'll have to say I was proud, b/c they all raved about our meal, and were disappointed in SIL's meal - who is usually the primo (no children) cook (can you hear my evil cackle?). All we had was a buffet-style burrito line with tortillas, homemade guac, homemade refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, rice and salsa. Oh, and chocolate pudding cake for dessert
It sounds like such a simple meal, but strangely enough we had to put lots of thought into what would please so many people with such different palates (sp?).
