I need to do one thing before I go any further with this blog: I have to explain about myself and vegetables. I've been struggling with how to explain this, so bear with me. Basically, I don't eat vegetables. Well, I eat potatoes and corn on the cob, and every so often I'll eat a few carrots, but if it's green? You get the picture. Part of the reason my husband and I joined a CSA is so I'll learn to eat more vegetables. The combination of the stuff being really fresh, straight from the farm, prepaid, and pretty much handed to us every week seems like it might do the trick. In any event, I'm willing to try. So when you see me talking about trying things, understand that it sort of goes beyond picky. I've been this way for forty years! What I've vowed is to try EVERYTHING. Some things aren't too intimidating, but there are some things I'm dreading (like beets). There is going to be some easing into things. I don't promise that everything I eat will be healthy. But this is my first step.
