30 days of thankful #5

Growing up, I did not like vegetables. I was the child who frustrated her parents by dawdling at meal time. I had a lot of stories to tell but not much interest in the food on my plate.

Somehow I survived. And every time I roast up a pan of veggies or fill my plate with more greens than carbs, I wonder if mom is watching from heaven and thinking, finally! And I am thankful for daughters who have helped me learn how to properly prepare the lovely veggies.

  1. Yum! I think, like you, I’ve come to appreciate vegetables more and more as I’ve gotten older. I think the reason I did not like many things as a child is because of how they were prepared, and I’m so thankful that I’ve learned to cook veggies in ways that make them more delicious!

  2. I have always loved vegetables and I’m thankful for that. Of course, I love bread and potatoes more, but still . . .

  3. What a great photo, Juliann! I wasn’t too fond of all the vegetables as a kid, but I blame the way my mom prepared them. These days, there’s not a one I don’t love!
