My latest quest: finding vegetable recipes

Vegetables L
I think I mentioned that I do not love vegetables. I have diagnosed myself with a genetic predisposition to a disinterest in vegetables. Thank you, Dad!
As a matter of fact, when I was a kid I asked if I could be a “meat-a-tarian” (on second thought, I also wanted to be a chip-a-tarian so I do like some vegetables ;) )
I realize that vegetables are good for me so I decided that the adult thing to do would be to embrace vegetables. Therefore, I plan to make vegetables a bigger focus in the meals I make.
So, how did we do on the vegetable front tonight? I believe a teacher would give me a “D” at best. I slaved over iceberg lettuce salads complete with cheese and dressing. The take away is that there is room for improvement!
I do have plans to improve, as I was reading an article today about rhubarb, a vegetable that is often forgotten. Lucky for me my parents have an abundance of the stuff and I love it! Rhubarb is in season now, so I encourage you to try it. It is tart, and I like it with truckloads of sugar. I know there are some great savory dishes with pork and rhubarb so you can look forward to some of those recipes in the days and weeks to come!
Stay tuned for the latest vegetable recipes!
