Cooking away the CSA, week 15: On raising a kid who likes vegetables

my kids weren't big veggie eaters either as tots (green beans and corn mostly), but i did get them to eat raw cauliflower, carrots, and red peppers by making a salad with them, using italian salad dressing. I used the packets (high sodium, but...what can you do), and just mixed it up. I added onions and cherry tomatoes through the years, and some kids like parts of it better than others. Sometimes its eaten as soon as its made, and sometimes it gets to set and soak in the flavors. I use less oil than recommended and no one has complained. One wants to add broccoli to it, and the others say no.
And kids go through cycles... I even have one that eats peas! one that won't eat cooked carrots or peppers and another that won't touch tomatoes. To each his own

Delicious/Nutritious: Sweet corn a summer treat

I haven't tried the microwave version of steaming corn, but I usually boil a pot of water, put in the corn, put on a lid and take it off the heat.
You can also boil water in the microwave, put in the corn, cover with plastic wrap.
I am anxious to try the microwave, once i get one that works well.

Hero or terrorist? Pulitzer Prize-winning author, historian to discuss John Brown

I think you are putting too much into my statement, and I am refraining from telling you what I really think about your statement. BUT I never said his crime was okay. Actually, if you would have asked, I would have told you that I disagree with his crime, although his greatest wish to end slavery was admirable. It was a different way of life back then and the territory was in great turmoil. There was alot going on during that time.
I insinuated from the statement that the families of the men witnessed the murder and they did not.
Some who lived in the area reported being threatened by the murdered men for their abolitionist or anti slavery views. Dutch henry Sherman and his brother william had many enemies. They were looking for henry but found william.
And I wouldn't call John Brown a psychopathic killer. I don't think he WAS crazy. A little delusional that harper's Ferry would work, but I dont think he was insane.

I dont consider him a Kansan either, but we were outvoted (since he was named one)

I am not sure he ever voted either. But his sons owned land and voted.

No, he didn't kill them in front of their families.... and while it doesn't excuse it, there is some evidence that says the proslavery men could have, or did, threaten abolitionists in the area.
