I had THE BEST creamed corn at the Irondale Cafe in Birmingham over the weekend. That is the cafe that was the inspiration for the book and movie, Fried Green Tomatoes. And yes, I had the FGT too. And got the shirt!
My family likes the asparagus roasted until its crispy. I do not like it like that which is why I got sick of it.
Bought some tonight and think I will roast it and take mine out early and leave the rest of it in there to almost burn to death for them.
I had thought about doing green bean bundles again this year.
Blanch fresh green beans and then make a bundle of then, tie the bundle with a piece of raw bacon and then put under the broiler until the bacon crisps up.
It's a Paula Deen recipe. Go figure.
I love all vegetables except eggplant. My daughter ONLY eats canned green beans, roasted asparagus and will eat corn. She also eats many vegetable raw that she will not eat cooked.
Hubby ONLY likes green beans, corn, asparagus and occasionally califlower or broccoli.
I have a great spiced carrot recipe, but I'm the only one that eats it.
How did I end up with picky eaters? The kid ate all kinds of veggies until she was about 4 or 5. I think she saw that her dad was picky and started copying him.
And NONE Of them like veggie casseroles like green bean or squash casserole that I grew up eating. Sides are ALWAYS a problem in my house not just at Christmas.
Oh and they both eat potatos, so no problem there.
