Cooking is one of my favorite activities.
It sucks however to get creative day after day. So I’m on a quest these days to keep things simple. One such dish I discovered yesterday - simple steamed vegetables that puts me straight into rabbit category. It’s hard getting veggies into kids tummies, especially when the kids are nearing 30 years of age (ahem cough).
I’m not posting a recipe, its more of a “do this and then that” kinda blog post. No pictures either since I’m lazy or never have my camera with me when I need it. By the time I hunted the camera down, the husband had plowed through it all, so there goes the picture :P
A few french beans of the young charming and really nice looking kind
A few baby carrots - the babier the better ;)
Steam them. Steam the carrots first since they are more stubborn than the french beans.
In a pan
Butter (like Julia Child would say - everything tastes good with butter. Just limit the quantity and don’t veer into Paula Deen area of butter quantity)
Thyme, rosemary and dill - sauteed until you smell the aroma.
Toss the steamed veggies, add a little salt and voila. You will have the husband sniffing in the kitchen like you just dished up a 5 star restaurant dish. Evening well served. * blows air on nails *. I should have remembered to ask to buy something with his credit card precisely at that moment. He never refuses after a satisfying dinner. Darn!
