When I was a kid I would never let a single vegetable pass by my lips and into my tummy. Things are different today. Very different. My dear sweet mom is amazed at the things I will cook, serve, AND EAT! She said I never ate an egg til I was 18. I don’t remember, but I believe her. Now I not only eat eggs in any way, shape, or form, but veggies are my side of choice when we go out to breakfast.
Last year was the Year of the Brussels Sprout. I wouldn’t even entertain chewing those things, but one day, after seeing them on a blog post, I had a change of heart. Jeff cooked them, I tried them, I loved them! Look at what I missed! Time wasted!!
Yesterday Jeff and I took our usual Sunday road trip to a local diner and I ordered a five veggie omlette. Not only were there five vegetables in that baby, but it came with a side of grilled zucchini instead of potatoes. Don’t get me wrong. I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEE potatoes, but my hips don’t. I use to be able to eat just about anything and still look like Twiggy, but something changed. Go figure.
Funny thing was, our waitress asked the kitchen for a side of potatoes. So when I shyly mentioned the error and told her it was ok, she kindly brought me my veggie.
Well, not only did I love my zucchini, but IT LOVED ME BACK! Look here. Do you see it?
Delicious, cheese covered greens. And not only did they love me back. They did it twice!
This girl ate the zuke’s AND the spuds. Twiggy be damned!
