Veggie Side-Dishes

April 22nd, 2007 at 09:56 pm

I've been wanting to make a list of vegetables and quick side-dishes featuring each that my husband will eat. With luck, 18-month old DS will eventually learn to eat most of them as well. It's not exactly financial, but why not keep it in my blog? This is definitely a work-in-progress, and I hope to come back and update it whenever I a new dish is a hit. I started with a list of vegetables from Wikipedia, and shortened it somewhat by deleting ones I didn't think I'd find in the local and ethnic grocery stores.

    Hi there. I don't see corn on your list but if it's something your family will eat, I have a great squash and corn recipe that's easy, very tasty, adapts well to changes and is quite frugal! If you'd like it let me know and I'll post the recipe on my blog. Smile
